let's go outside and play! design challenge details!

hi everyone!  here are the details for April/May's Design Challenge!  as you might remember, the lovely seasandseasons has chosen "let's go outside and play!" as the next theme!  so, with that in mind, here are the rules!  we've changed things a little to hopefully make it easier to enter and for us to post when all of the entries are submitted so everyone can check out the talents!

the rules are simple:

- entries will be accepted until may 15th, 2011.

- only one entry per individual (you can only submit one entry even if you have multiple shops)

- all entries MUST be handmade and listed for sale/trade in your Etsy shop. (no supplies or destash please!)

- all entries must reflect in some way the current theme "let's go outside and play!"

- tag your item with this month's challenge tag "trademay11" so that people can find your item!

- when you're ready to enter, CONVO muffintopdesigns with the LISTING ID# of your entry (it's the number that you use when you make treasuries).  it's located on the actual listing page below the listing date and above the number of views your item has had.  we will be making treasuries with the entries in alphabetical order by shop name and posting the widgets on the blog so everyone can check everything out!  hopefully this will be a better way to show off the team talents!  (and maybe end up on the front page?)

Feel free to promote the challenge - and yourself! - via facebook, twitter, etsy, your blog or hot air balloon! the voting will start on may15th and go till the 25th!
thanks to you all - especially seasandseasons! - for being so awesome! happy springtime, and as always - TRADE ON!
