Hello dear Haveners, It’s this time of the year to welcome spring ! But have you ever thought of the origins of the word? Because, we too did.

Spring, was not always known by this name. As seasons changed, words involved into what we now know. Originally our dear season was known as "Lent" or the "Lenten season"  which comes from the Old English "Lengten" meaning, to Make longer or greater in length. It appears that whoever named our season in question, was inspired by how days are longer during this special time of the year. It was not until later in the fourteen century that the term Lent was replaced by Springing time, referring to how the dormant winter plants sprung open and bloomed with grace. The season went through more changes over the next two centuries, from being shortened into Spring-time, till it became what we know as Spring.


Poets over the centuries spoke out about the beauty of spring, a symbolism to the circle of life. The snow fading away, nourishing the soil with water, soft rays of light, flowers and grass coming back to life. Just as these flowers, new things bloom through the breeze. Might it be new plants or friendship, this is your mission to find out. Animals and insects, some of the hibernating mammals finally wake up. Maybe this is a call for you, dear members, to dust off old partnerships and form new ones. Many cultures celebrated and honored the re-birth of earth in this period, just as we create a new tradition.



Let's spring together into the season with a newly bloomed event! This spring we would like to introduce a new collaborative event that has been suggested a few times by the community. In this event, you will be partnered up with a member of the community to work together and create a character based on the keywords listed below. The character can be any design you and your partner want to draw. It can be a human, robot, animal, or even shapes! Let your imagination run wild and your creativity take over!


In order to participate, you have to post in this topic saying you'd like to participate. After the sign-up deadline is over, you will be randomly partnered up with another participant. Together, you and your partner will decide on which keywords you'd like to incorporate in your design. The design must include one word from each of the three categories in the list below. You can select more than three keywords as long as the main three are present in your design.


You and your partner must work together and draw together. For example, one person can sketch and the other can color or you guys can pass the file back and forth between each other. We expect everyone to share the workload and most importantly, have fun and meet someone new! When you and your partner are done with the design, one person must post the submission below and tag their partner. In your submission post, please include the keywords you selected and a high quality image of your character design.




 You must sign-up and be partnered up with someone to fully complete the event.

 This is an open submission, so post your character design below and tag your partner. You can give your character a name!

 Please put effort and time in your submission. We want you to fully show off your character design. 

 The character design must be unique and nothing that has been designed before, use your imagination! 

 Please divide the work between you and your partner equally 

 You must have a minimum of 3 keywords in the design from the three categories below

✿ You may sell the design at the end of the event! Make sure to discuss with your partner and split the payment evenly.

 Character design has to be completed by the deadline. No WIPs or incomplete work.

 Please respect and work with your partner. If a situation arises and you and your partner are unable to work it out,  please don't hesitate to reach out to an Event Coordinator so we can reach a solution.
