Introducing: The Talent Scouting Party!

Pin It

Can you tell what the big news is?
That's right! There's a new party in town!

The Talent Scouting Party @WhisperWood Cottage will be scouting for talented bloggers who would like to be published in Cottages & Bungalows magazine! I know how talented you are! I see it week after week as I make the rounds on the blogs. I want to help you get published!

Periodic party themes for upcoming issues of Cottages & Bungalows Magazine will be announced here at WhisperWood Cottage. Bloggers can link up projects that relate to that theme during the availability period. After the availability period ends, a list of top contenders for the magazine feature will be announced. From the top contenders, a final project will be selected as the winner of an upcoming feature in Cottages & Bungalows Magazine.

So, what theme is up first?...

Flea market transformations! Yes, I know y'all have tons of those! If you read this blog, it is most likely that you are a flea market, thrift store, and garage sale fan like me. So, get ready to link up any and all "flea market transformations" that you'd like to see in Cottages & Bungalows magazine.

It's time to get your talent noticed! Please get your best flea market transformation projects ready to link up beginning on Sunday, March 4. You'll have two weeks to finish up any projects and get those linked up, too! The availability party will end on March 18.

Judges will pick the contenders and the winner based on these qualities...
  1. Innovation
  2. Usefulness
  3. Adaptability to any cottage style
  4. Budget friendliness
  5. Quality of the project/craftsmanship
  6. Quality of the photos (great tips at Donna's workshop series on point & shoot cameras)
  7. Entrant follows all party rules
There are a few rules that participants will need to follow. You can review them now by going to the "GET SCOUTED!" page up under the blog header. 

Show that you want to be scouted! Get a head start on the event by grabbing the button below for your sidebar...

Are you as excited as I am? I hope so!! 
Linky opens on Sunday, March 4!


  1. If I don't find anything lurking at my house, at least I'm looking forward to looking at what links up here with you.


  2. I agree with Bliss...makes me wish there were flea markets in Curacao. :)

  3. wahoo!!! SO fun! and not to be a ninny, but it can be like an auction find, too, right?

  4. Sounds like fun--no flea markets here either, but lots of thrift stores and garage sales in the summer. Thanks for the opportunities!

  5. This is SUPER exciting!
