Europeanstreetteam weekly Challenge : Seeds and Pods

Coincidences happen : I am the randomly picked winner of the EST challenge hosted by Kirschbits !  And ... exactly one year ago on the 15 th of March I
hosted my very first EST challenge too !

The Weekly Challenge is a sort of Billboard – contest host by members of the Etsy European Street Team, Etsy sellers from all over Europe.
How does it work :
One member of the team, the winner of the previous week, selects a theme and publishes it in her/his blog. The other team members who would like to participate, send him/her a photo of a handmade item specially made for the challenge, or one that meets concept of the selected theme. After a week, or sometimes 2 weeks, the host of the challenge selects a winner from all the entries submitted and published in the blog. Then that winner continues the thread.

I am sure that most of you ever made a necklace out of melonseeds when you where little, and as I am a fan of natural products I set the theme to :


 Seeds and Pods

Where to find these ? In your garden, in a gardenshop, a flowershop that gives workshops for flower arrangements ... just let your imagination flow !

 entries can be mailed to
info.zsazsazsu@gmail.com or through my etsy account

Can't wait to see what you will come up with! Surprise me and
my blogreaders !

The winner will be picked monday 27 th of March at 9 pm CET
Good Luck !
