Frog Gingerbread Vivariums (houses). I think that there could be some really cool creativity with that one.

I had this idea awhile back....

...Sounded like a good idea for a contest after the current contest. We could limit it to just photo shopping frog pics or we could also allow people to draw/paint or even sculpt frogs....either works for me. I'm thinking basically anything goes, wings, claws, chimeras, etc...etc... Maybe make the 1 rule the head basically has to be a frogs head? or reptilian at least? Like that gator frog pic thats been on the internet

So what do you guys think?
P.S. Can I get plant vendor sticky for Christmas Kyle?

That sounds really cool! You could use melted sugar for plate glass windows.

I think the Christmas ornament idea takes the cake! It is cheap, and anyone can try it. Plus they will last much longer then parishable ginger bread houses or pumpkins Could even turn into a yearly collection.

Very true... my pumpkin was torn apart by squirrels after being out on the porch a day (at least it was a winner with them). I could see the same fate for a ginger bread house, in my house with my dogs.

I like the idea of the Christmas ornaments.... lets think up some quick rules. It will need to be a quick contest.

instead of gingerbread men..gingerbread frogs (size up to participant). you can use cake gel/frosting in a tube to color them in..use sprinkles for dots, eyes, markings..i think overall its an easy budget on the pocket especially with the holidays here

Not sure how complicated we need to make it. I think anything that can be attached to a tree branch, and hand made is resonable. And like the pumpkin contest, their should be proof of each member's username somewhere on the ornament, or on a piece of paper in the picture. People could even use their cookies as ornaments!

I agree with The Pumpkin King! (GRIMM)
Every year for halloween we do the pumpkins, and every year for christmas we do ornaments. That makes 2 of the contests easy, in terms of judging, what to expect, and reasonable costs.

OK, here's a start for rules---
*Ornaments must be have a winter holiday/Christmas theme
*Must represent dart frogs
*Ornament must be photographed next to your name

Any other ideas?

Very true! If ornaments are the contest, I'll take your idea and make a cookie ornament. At least then it won't be a wasted effort and my dog can eat it


btw, I'm a girl

We should hurry up and finalize this contest...I wanna start carving/sculpting an ornament! I might even use them as gifts this year.
