Update: the 2014 contest has its own website. You can check it out here.
Once upon a time (about a year ago), in Blogland, there was a challenge issued to design a little house. Many people were very excited about this challenge and went all out to create their own little dream space. That annual dollhouse challenge is back this year. Only with a new name, new host, on a new website and this time there are prizes!
What exactly is the challenge?
Yes, it’s adults building and/or decorating dollhouses. No, it’s not weird. Check this out:
No, that’s not a real cellar. That’s the cellar in the dollhouse of Queen Mary of England. Yep, the Queen had a dollhouse.
Most of us have ideas and plans and Pinterest boards for our very own extravagant dream house. Well, now you can go ahead and build it. Dreaming of gourmet kitchen with a Viking range and a Smeg fridge? You can have one in your dollhouse, for only a few dollars if you are up for the simple DIY. An ultra modern house maybe? Or maybe you want a loft bunk with a slide and a swing in a bedroom?
So, why would you join this challenge? Well, besides the fact that you get to build your dream house, make new friends, gain a new hobby and have a lot of fun, you can win a $100 gift card. If you win first place, that is. There are two more prizes to be had: a $50 gift card for second place and a $25 gift card for third place. Each winner will get to choose from a gift card for Etsy, Michaels or Home Goods.
The three winners of the dollhouse contest will be determined by you, wise mini judges. Once the challenge is over on the evening of May 8th, voting will begin. Anyone is welcome to vote, whether you participated in the challenge or not, and each voter gets to cast up to three votes (only one vote per dollhouse). So spread the word, especially if you are participating! , and get your friends to join in and vote.
The dollhouse contest officially begins right now. For all the details and extra goodies, bookmark the page made just for the dollhouse challenge. If you don’t already have your dollhouse or shoebox or guitar case, that’s fine, just link up a picture of yourself…or your cat…or your breakfast. Then once you get your hands on your dollhouse, come back and update the link. Ready? Go!
