Start your year with CREATIVITY!

This is my personal 31 day challenge
and I am inviting you to join me on the adventure of creativity.
Please invite others, the journey is better when shared.

Simple Challenge Rules:

Daily creativity.  (yes, daily)
The goal is to do something creative EVERY day in the month of January. 
You can start something new, spend some time on a work in progress and hopefully, finish a thing or two over the next 31 days.

You define your own creativity!
It could be painting, drawing, sewing, knitting, gluing, making jewelry, photography, writing, soldering, cooking, quilting, singing, sanding, journaling, designing, baking, blogging, fusing, stitching,  organizing, fiber dying, doodling, felting, hammering and more! 
Pick a creative activity that brings you joy!

Your creative period must be for a minimum of 15 minutes. 
I challenge you to set aside at 30 minutes, better yet an hour.  But we are all busy people and some days it might be difficult for us to squeeze in 15 minutes.   

Share your creative experience.
Post a quick photo of your creativity in our Hibernate & Create Facebook Group.  The group will cheer you on!  I will cheer you on!  I'm a great cheerleader! 

Click here to join the group.

FABULOUS prizes!
To help inspire creativity,  there will be a chance to win prizes from some talented & generous folks.   Prizes will either be a finished item or some supplies to help inspire your next creative project.

How you are entered:
Post your daily photos in the Hibernate & Create Facebook group for a chance to win.
You MUST start your post with Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc.

How the drawing works:
The winner will be announced in the Facebook group.
Generally they are announced day after the the stated dates for each prize.
Example, prize #1 will be announced on January 4th.

Let's get this party started!
to be announced

And, there might be other prizes too!  Maybe, just maybe! 
Keep an eye on the Facebook group!

Enjoy the challenge!  Share the challenge!
I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together! 

Go above and beyond and your pictures on Instagram using the hashtag #hibernateandcreate.  
I'll find them and "heart" them.  Promise!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to create EVERYDAY?
No!  You can participate as much or as little as you would like.  Or, you can simply sit back and cheer others on.  The intent of this challenge is simply to motivate you to be more creative in your daily life (and hopefully finish some projects!)

How do I win a prize?
You are entered into the drawing for each day that you post your creativity.   You can post more than once a day or post with multiple pictures, but it is still only one entry for that day.
Each prize has a stated time frame for the respective drawing.  You must post on the day of the prize number for a chance to win.  And, your post MUST start "Day 1,"  "Day 2,"  etc.   You do not have to post each day, but the more days you post the more chances you have to win the prize. 

How will I know if I won?  And how will I get my prize?I will make a post in Facebook group announcing the winners of each prize.  I will send a private message via Facebook to the winner with the prize provider to connect them for the prize to be mailed / delivered.

I'm not on Facebook - can I still participate?
Unfortunately, for this year's challenge, we are only accepting entries submitted in the Facebook group.  It makes it easier to manage and it creates a better community for the challenge.

What happens after the challenge is over?
The group continues on encouraging each other through out the year!  Keep on posting your projects, ask questions or simply browse for inspiration.

I had so much fun seeing what everyone did last year. Hibernate and Create was a wonderful motivator for my own work, as well. I look forward to getting started!
