A new challenge blog

Being the sort of person I am , I am always looking at different things for inspiration and am always trying out new techniques and crafts. So I thought that a challenge that was open to any form of art or craft entry would be a brilliant way to inspire you to create , Not just because of the challenge, but because of the many varied entries that will be on show.

So last week I started looking for a team, and asked Rosie not realsing all the commitments she has and what a hectic life she leads. Rosie was very excited about the idea but after a night thought realised that there was just no way she could offer that sort of commitment, but she has kindly agreed to be our 1st guest designer. I then asked Fiona and Susie and am really pleased to say that they loved the idea and are now along with myself the This Thursdays design team.

I have been very pleasantly surprised surprised just how excited everyone is about the CHALLENGE , so much so we already have sponsors for the 1st 5 challenges and we can't wait for the challenges to begin.

The challenge blog is open now whilst in development and there is a chatroom. if you want to go in the chatroom to suggest things that you would love to see, or just to chat with others. Great. We will be announcing on our blogs a pre launch chat in the chatroom with the design team in the near future.

We are also looking for Guest designers with different crafting or art skills as well as papercrafters to take part to take part. If you think that you have what we are looking for please e mail the team on with craft areas you are experienced in and a link to your blog.

Anyway thats my news for now
