no previous part Part 1 of LumberJocks Halloween 2011 Challenge : Candy Container series Part 2: Special Edition T-Shirts »

The Headless LumberJock rides again, this time creating a special Halloween Candy Container.

There are candy containers used by the average person and then there are those created by LumberJocks!
LumberJocks like to think outside the box, or the bowl as in this case, and take things to a whole new level. And, so, the challenge is on—create a container for Halloween candy or just decoration and enter to win one of the very cool – Special Edition – LumberJock t-shirts.

Rules

  1. design/create something to hold Halloween candy
  2. tag project as “halloween2011”
  3. submit entry by October 31, 2011, midnight (Greenwich Mean Time)
  4. three winners with the highest project score (secret formula that is behind the Hot Projects – in summary it’s a weighted average of the project’s faves, comments and views) will be announced on November 1st
  5. winners will each receive a “Headless LumberJock” t-shirt (see images below)
  6. have fun – fun creating, fun building, fun showcasing your project, and fun using the project for Halloween

Enjoy!

Great theme! I have so many ideas popping in my head for this that I may have trouble choosing one and doing it by the deadline..

Someone should tell that guy on the tee shirt to use a push stick next time.

Martin: Did you ever find the link for these shirts?
I can’t find the regular LJ store either… where is that located nowadays??
It’s probably right under my nose, but I can’t find it… Thanks!!

Three (3) days ago, he said “be able to buy it right before Halloween”.

The link will probably be here: http://shop.cafepress.com/lumberjock

Yeah, I found that David, but when I click t-shirts it says “Oops!”, “Page removed or renamed” etc….

I am sorry but I just have to say it “SawStop could have prevented that accident”

Like I said sorry guys I just saw the oppurtunity and it happened.

Yes… Thank you!

I BOOKMARKED it this time…

... just for kicks, I went to the ROOT (home) of the URL, and Searched for Lumberjocks… and could never get back & find what Debbie’s link showed… So, just knowing what the website is won’t do you any good!

Save Debbie’s complete URL… in Favorites or Bookmarks to be safe…
... then, don’t forget that you did it! LOL

lol
it’s at the bottom, before the Company information.
hint: there’s a picture of a hat, I think, in the last couple of issues.
