Well we've had lots of requests and lots of excitement about the first blog challenge we issued, so here we go again. Before we show it to you though, we wanted to clear up a few questions that we were asked about blogging. (Sorry it's a bit long, but worth the read if you're in doubt.)
Some people said...."I don't know how to blog though".
I thought I'd try and make it a little clearer for you here. Blogging is simply a way of sharing what's going on in your particular world, in this instance what's happening beyond classes and daily "stuff" at your local scrapbook store ( short form LSS) the Craft Nook.
You don't have to be a "follower" of a blog, however that helps us to know you're interested. You can "comment" at any time on a posting that interests you by simply going to the bottom of the post and clicking on comment, then type in what you have to say. Below the white comment box there is another box with a drop down at the side that says "Comment as". If you have a blog or webpage of your own then you would select that, but for the many of us who don't have that, click on "anonymous" and add your comment.
Now in the blogging world though you may post your comment as anonymous, it's polite to make sure you sign your name within your comments so that we know who you are. "Anonymous" is simply given as an option sometimes for all of us who don't usually blog. We've given that option here.
So, you don't have to understand the world of blogging to enter our challenges, you just have to be able to visualise the challenge as a craft in some form. It could be a paper craft such as a scrapbook page, card or 3D item, a jewellery piece you create, a wreath for your door, a knit or crochet item, it simply has to be something you made within the guidelines of the challenge. Secondly you have to be able to either photograph or scan your entry and email it to us, or if that's not within your comfort zone, bring it in and we'll do that for you.
Easy Peasy so let's have some FUN!
Here's the challenge photo and my sample visualised as a card. We will add more sample ideas as we complete them in the next week. A jewellery one is in the works, also a scrapbook page.
Closing date for this challenge is Monday June 13th
