The Crochet Crowd Honours Ribbon
Crochet Crowders know on Facebook that we take the time to highlight the creativity displayed by others on a daily basis. Our goal as a community is to feature a minimum of 6,000 crocheters in a year. Truth is, I think we exceed that.
The Crochet Crowd is community focused in inspiring each other. We help each other as much as we can.
The act of acknowledgement is free and can raise the spirits of another. The form of acknowledgement just doesn’t have to be from my team, it can be from each of the participants in our community.
Thousands of posts touch our hearts in some way. Each chosen photo feature is a random selection. It’s like winning a lottery. Truth is, our team gets a kick out of featuring other people. It brings us natural smiles here. The Crochet Crowd, though directed by the team and myself, it’s not all about us. It’s about “WE”, which includes you.
A couple years ago, I remember a crocheter begin devastated about not winning an award at a show. Turns out, she had done the work but the show ended up being cancelled. The afghan was really amazing. So I thought to myself, though we are a cyber based community, there’s nothing wrong with us to say, ‘This deserves a cyber blue ribbon for excellence!’ People got behind us in congratulating this crocheter. It was a great feeling.
So for about a year, I’ve been wanting a ribbon that is from us, created by us. The design has been bouncing in my head for months. I wanted something scrapbook’ee’ but also relevant to us as a community. Occasionally, we offer the Cyber Blue Ribbon Comment for excellence. Now we have an official graphic to share.
You may see from time to time us putting this award in the comment thread of a photo if we are so inspired by the creativity shown. The Honours Award isn’t based on being the best. It’s sometimes the stories, accomplishments and more that are conveyed within the photo and blurb that you add to it.
