Veggies Go Buggy- July's EtsyVeg Creative Challenge!

You are cordially invited to play, get more involved with the team, get inspired, share your talent, take advantage of some free promotion... get ready for July's team creative challenge!

July's challenge theme is "Don't Bug Me!", as we move into one of the biggest months for insects! Don't go too buggy, though, as you let your imaginations go wild, and enter any items that meet your interpretation of what the the theme represents, i.e., colors, images, scents, themes, materials. The challenge theme is very subjective, so enter whatever handmade creations, vintage goods, or supplies, new or already listed in your shop, fit the theme for you! ;)

The EtsyVeg Monthly Challenge is meant to inspire, recognize, and promote team members and our shops; to spread the word about vegan/vegetarian lifestyles and living consciously; and to raise awareness about the ease of eco-friendly living and the rights of animals to live free of exploitation by making . Here's how to enter...


*Challenge Guidelines*

~Participation is open to any EtsyVeg team member.

~Entry involves simply posting applicable items in your shop with the tag "veggiesgobuggy" (one word, without the quotations). You must also have your entry tagged with the official team tag, "etsyveg team." Challenge tags may be removed after the first week of August ends.

~Deadline for entry is July 31st.

~At least one entry per participant will be featured in a treasury on the EtsyVeg blog at the beginning of August.

~All EtsyVeg members (not just participants) are invited throughout the month to initiate forum threads about the challenge, make treasuries by doing a tag search for "etsyveg team" with "veggiesgobuggy" and putting only those items in the treasury, or to generate other types of promotion. (If you do any of these, please let everyone know so that we can all post or click to keep it going!)


Get prepared for a summer full of creative opportunity, and start working on your pieces now for August's "Dog Days" challenge.

~*Happy creating!*~
