It’s October (In Australia anyway!) Woohoo, and as many of you already know, art is a huge part of my life, and I love teaching and sharing it with those who are interested. I also love sharing the things that I create, so I have decided to give some of them away each month, and create some fun giveaways! So this is how it’s going to work:
October is going to be Art Blitz Month in the @JPeaSmith world, and it is all about getting word out there about the YouTube channel (which is where I showcase my art and teach for free), and the Facebook GROUP (@JPeaSmith Art) where I post all the patterns and instructions for free, and I will be giving YOU points for helping me spread the word. The more you share and tell people about these, the more chances of winning.
There will be 3 prizes awarded in October, one for the person who collects the most YouTube Points, one for the person who collects the most Facebook Points, and one for the new, monthly Purple Heart Award which I will explain in the next post.
YOUTUBE POINTS (You will earn):
- 1 point for subscribing to the YouTube channel (if you are already subscribed that counts too!).
- 2 points for every one of your friends and family you get to subscribe as well 🙂
- 2 point for every YouTube video you share directly to your Facebook page.
- 2 points for sharing this post to a group you are in and recommending it.
- 5 points for something truly clever that you might like to think of yourself. Interview me on a big blog, share the channel somewhere that gets a load of traction, let me know what you come up with! 🙂
FACEBOOK GROUP POINTS (You will earn):
- 1 point for subscribing to the Facebook GROUP (@JPeaSmith Art) (if you are already subscribed that counts too!).
- 2 points for every one of your friends and family you get to join the group as well 🙂
- 5 points for making something from the YouTube channel yourself and sharing the pic on the Facebook Group 🙂
The onus is going to be on YOU to keep tabs on your points and record them EITHER on the comments on this post OR on the pinned post on my Author Facebook Page or on the pinned post on Simply start a comment on the post, and as you collect points across the month, just add them, tagging the people you add as you go, and contribute to the fun. See the example below…
As your friends subscribe and join, they will start their own comment and start earning their own points right away!
I have created a Prize Pool, which is a collection of things that I make on the YouTube channel, and through October I will add a new item each week, to the handful already in the pool. That means by the end of October, there will be a minimum of 10 things in the pool for the winners to choose from. The remaining prizes will stay in there for the next Giveaways, and any excuse I can find to send them to people for free 🙂
