August 27, 2010

The Pottery Barn Challenge is up!!

It’s time to link up YOUR Pottery Barn-Inspired Projects!!

Come Show Rhoda from Southern Hospitality YOUR ideas.

Reminder of the CSI Guidelines

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme.We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it. 

2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host :)

6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 5 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit and link back to your blog. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like!

Rhoda will go through each project and find her personal #1 favorite, plus her Top 10.

Visit thecsiproject.com

Jen, Beckie, and Amanda will also choose their favorite projects and award those people with a special button to display on their blogs.

TWO  winners will be chosen from the entries to win a $20 gift certificate to

Say It on the Wall Vinyl!!

You can order any type of vinyl that you want!

  1. This is my first link-up and I’m so impressed with everyone’s projects… I also like the “theme” each week so that there aren’t just a ton of random projects being added… Thanks for hosting!

  2. Thanks for hosting this. I just got my last link up done. I have got to remember the time difference! lol Better late then never I guess. Lots of great ideas out there. Such talented ladies.

  3. Hi and thank you for hosting such an awesome challenge! I barely made it with my entry, it’s been a hectic week, then I got sidetreacked looking at all the amazing projects and almost forgot that I was supposed to be entering my own! lol I have linked up a past project and updated it with a mention that is being entered here and also did a current post mentioning that I am entering two projects here. CSI is linked up on both posts!

    Thanks again for such a collection of projects to see!


  4. My idea of the perfect Saturday has just changed to a boring rainy day with nothing to do so I could just sit and look through all these projects! This is amazing! Our collective creative force just astounds me sometimes.

    I just loved this challenge! Your challenges really give me motivation, that’s for sure. I linked up two little projects, and I’m really looking forward to learning from some of the others! Thank you for hosting. 🙂

    I didn’t have anything to enter and then I saw these cute chalkboard rocks and thought I’d give it a try. I changed them a little by turning them into magnets. Hope you like them. Thanks for hosting and fun party and challenge.

  7. Desiree says:

    I’m having a great time seeing everyone’s PB inspired projects. Getting a few ideas myself. This is my first time participating in this challenge!


  8. I’m super excited to see all these projects. . . Love me some Pottery Barn! :]
