Greenleaf's Seventh Annual Spring Fling Contest

Greenleaf is proud to announce the start of our Seventh annual Spring Fling Contest! Last years contest was a blast and we can't wait to see what you do this year! Again, we have a ton of options that will allow those who are timid about kit bashing a chance to uniquely configure their entry. Of course, the base unit is all you need to compete and this year, we're continuing the prize category called "luck of the draw" which will be randomly selected. Also, because of our late start, we are extending the contest until Halloween! What a great way to end miniature month!

As in years past, we're keeping it interesting; we're going to name this new building after the winner! That's right, we'll rename it after you - for example, last years winner, April, renamed the project house to "Asahi Tea House". Asahi means morning sun and she felt like it was a good fit for a kit that was created during sunny summer mornings. It's your turn to be forever immortalized as part of the Greenleaf product line. Now how cool is that?

In a nutshell, just submit a picture of a scene with your project that must include the base house and you might win one of these great prizes below. The best news is that Greenleaf has put together a special deal on the Base Project kit for $19.95 with FREE SHIPPING on your entire order* (more details below)! So join us in the fun as we celebrate the change in seasons!

The Prizes

First Prize - A $500 Gift Certificate to the Greenleaf Company Store
That's right, $500 to spend as you want in the Greenleaf Company Store! That's enough to buy our laser cut flagship model, the Beaumont Dollhouse Kit!

Second Prize - A $250 Gift Certificate to the Greenleaf Company Store
That's right, $250 to spend as you want in the Greenleaf Company Store! That's enough to buy the Select Edition of the Brookwood Dollhouse! The Select Edition of the Brookwood Dollhouse is a special production run in which we upgrade the kit to the finest birch plywood we could find. It is back in stock and available here.

Third Prize - A $125 Gift Certificate to the Greenleaf Company Store
That's right, $125 to spend as you want in the Greenleaf Company Store! That's enough to buy our Limited Edition Arthur Dollhouse or maybe a Deluxe Dollhouse Lighting Kit.

Luck of the Draw - A $50 Gift Certificate to the Greenleaf Company Store
That's right, after the above winners have been selected, an entry will be pulled at random from the remaining field for $50 to spend as you want in the Greenleaf Company Store! That's enough to buy our new Laser Cut Half Scale Rosedale Dollhouse.

That's a lovely kit Dean and all the add-ons are great, particularly the doors. Can't afford to enter this year but I'll be watching and following this thread as the contest progresses. Good luck everyone, have loads of fun and keep this thread going with sneak peeks and clues.

Thank you Dean and the great Greenleaf staff for another great project. For me it is a reminder of the shore in New Jersey were i grew up. I don't know if I can make it this year, space is a concern. Just wanted to voice my appreciation.

I do love the kit, certainly, but time constraints won't allow me to compete this year. I am looking forward to the frenzy, though! Should make for a fabulous Halloween! Go get 'em, Flingers!!!! :jumping:

Well, I woke up still stuck on the same plan. Of course, I was stuck on the same plan last year until my kit arrived. I don't get to order quite yet so plenty of time to think :)

Since the other SF topic is now locked, let me once again offer my "consultation" services to all those who ask for them.

Before the millionaires and celebrities discovered Biscayne Bay it was once a wee fishing village...

I posted this at the very end of the thread that Dean closed so I thought I'd repost it here.

I had a very quick idea - sort of a kind of knee-jerk response to the Fling, but I really didn't want to build that kind of build.

So now I'm fighting with the very cool and very detailed and very distinct image in my head and raging dissent against building that type of build in my heart.

Go figure, I'd have to find a way to complicate my life even more. sigh ...

Anyone else having that kind of problem?

And Jo and Brae and Teresa - please reconsider ... we need you in the Fling - it's a tradition. It won't be the same without you. Pretty please with spackle on top !

Aww Selkie you are so sweet. I am building my Arsenic and Old Lace room box which I think will take most of the summer and just can't afford to have 2 projects on the go. I'll be on the sidelines cheering you all on as I'm sure will Brae and Teresa.

I think I had the same problem last year that you are having this year. I could only see one possibility, a garden room; it wouldn't go away no matter how many suggestions I had on my ideas list. In the end I just went with it but gave it a different bohemian twist that enthused me personally and I thoroughly enjoyed it after that. Good luck, I think deciding what to do is probably the hardest bit, once you have a vision it will flow like fine wine - cheers.

Well, I see this house turning into several different things... Including a "Bait Shop" for fishing. I have a super long list of things this can be. I keep hearing the song "Under the Boardwalk" by the Drifters every time I see the pictures :D

Oh, I have a solid idea for the kit...it's just the pesky having to work for a living that's calling the shots. :lol: If I had a wealthy benefactor and all my time to mini, then it would be no problem. :ohyeah:

Why does this happen to me? Why does GL make such awesome kits?

Sigh. I have two other houses to finish and no track record of being quick about any of it. But...I have such a fun idea... :D

I understand too busy to fling and this years kit might feel a bit overwhelming. The main piece is a perfect roombox type structure. For anyone with no time and no money, we have over 5 months. Check your list. Maybe there's a 'must build' on there which you have forgotten about.
