Buried Treasure

Buried Treasure - a call for collaborative participants!


I think it is reasonable to say that I am a blog junkie. As more time passes, I spend more and more (and more) time on art blogs. I love the interactive nature, inspiration, and immediacy that blogs provide. However, the limited time that I have means that I have been unable to fully explore the blogs that I love. There are usually many, many posts that I have never seen that were put up before I discovered a new blog. I just don't have time to go post by post from beginning to end in order to see all that is available.

So...Buried Treasure is about digging deep to uncover some hidden gems. The premise is simple. On Thursday July 16 all participating bloggers will re-post one (or more) of their favorite posts from their blog. As you might already know, I don't like too many rules when it comes to art and art collaboratives. So anything goes. Please leave a comment on this post or email me if you would like to participate. Just try and let me know by Tuesday July 14. On July 16, I will post a list of all participating artists so that you can be sure to find all the Buried Treasure. Feel free to let your own readers know about this project by spotlighting it on a post prior to reveal day. Happy hunting!

You can call yourself a blog junkie, but I'd say you're a little more of a "Blog Connoisseur!"
Love to participate in your latest treasure trove! You think of the most creative and clever collaborative projects for everyone to participate and share in with one another.
