2021 Design Team Call

It is time to recruit some new talent and fresh faces to our Heart2Heart Design Team for the first half of 2021!  We KNOW 2021 will be a better year, and we are making some exciting changes to the challenge blog.  If you love Close To My Heart and want to share your love of creating through Heart 2 Heart Challenges, then consider applying for our Design Team!  If selected, your term will be from January through June 2021 (and longer if mutually agreeable).  If you’re still interested after reading through the requirements, send your application to h2hchallenges@gmail.com.  

We will have ONE Design Team and two challenges per month. 

If you would like to be considered for one of the teams, here is the application process:
*Email h2hchallenges@gmail.com with your name, location, blog address, email address and a little bio about you. Be sure to tell me why you want to be a part of the team and how long you have been a CTMH consultant. Also, we’d like to know where you live because we are looking for geographic diversity too.

* You must send photos of three of your pieces of artwork. DO NOT send me a link to your blog to look at your artwork there - I want you to pick what you consider three of your best and include them with the application.

*If you are currently serving on a design team or have in the past, tell us about that experience.  Please include a link to the challenge blog(s).

* You MUST know how to write and schedule/publish a post on Blogger.  (We can help you learn if you don't already know how.) Each DT member will have a couple of weeks (scattered throughout your term) in which you are responsible for hosting/writing the Monday challenge post. Don't worry - the team will be around to help out with this as well but please only apply if you are comfortable blogging.

*You must be able to join our DT Facebook group.  We use this group as the most effective means of communication and where you post your artwork when you're not hosting.

ALL applications must be received by November 30.  This is a very quick turnaround time, but you will need time to start creating for January 1!  We will make the selection of the new team members with notification sent out no later than December 5.  

Here are some more things to keep in mind about a position on the DT.  You are committing to:
*Participate in a challenge twice each month and have your artwork for each challenge posted to the DT Facebook Group the Saturday before the challenge begins.
*Make an effort to post your artwork on any other boards/galleries you belong to and advertise our challenge blog whenever and wherever you can so we can continually grow in numbers of participants. We currently have an H2H page on Facebook that I would like DT members to join but this is optional.  (The Facebook DT group is required.)
*Participate in any extra programs that we may decide upon as a team. You are also expected to weigh in on your choices of winners in monthly awards (Top Ten) by the deadline.
*Join a Facebook Group set up specifically for team members.
*Visit the blogs of the challenge participants and leave comments.
*Serve as H2H blog hostess about once every other month.  (You must know how to use Blogger to do this.)

What you get in return:
* Commitment to producing artwork at least twice every month which gives you an opportunity to create on a regular basis!
* Opportunities to stretch yourself creatively with support from a great team!
* Increased blog traffic which will hopefully lead to an increase in your business!
* Fun and fellowship with the entire team and a chance to meet new consultants and CTMH fans!

I think that about wraps it up. What are you waiting for? Send in your application today!! (Any questions can be directed to me at h2hchallenges@gmail.com.)  Thanks!

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

This is the first challenge in November and the US Thanksgiving holiday is quickly approaching (other countries celebrate at different times of the year). Many individuals are focused on being grateful for what they have, especially in this difficult year. In today's society with so many negative things happening, it can be difficult at times to realize all of our blessings.

All of us here are Heart 2 Heart are very thankful for those of you who read this challenge blog and especially for those who participate in the weekly challenges!  There are SO many reasons for which to be thankful! This challenge is an opportunity to focus on that theme.

Let's take a look at how the design team represented thankfulness in their projects.

We look forward to seeing your thankful projects! 

You can link up below, and have until the end of the month to join us.
