Here is Julia who selected this fortnight's theme 


Hello all you lovely crafters, 

Well love it or hate it, it’s getting that time of year again when everyone is making Christmas cards, gifts and decorations, so my theme for this challenge is ‘Anything Christmas’.  I think it’s about one of the only times of year when you can’t have enough of the glitz and bling.  Saying that my piece doesn’t even have any glitter on it, I think I have been very restrained, I suppose you could count mirror board as a bit blingy!!  So everyone feel free to create anything you like and don’t hold back on embellishments it’s Christmas.
If you would like some inspiration check out what the rest of the DT have come up with, and please share all your wonderful creations with us, we really do love to see all your imaginative work.  Julia xx

Home Decor

Good morning are you ready for another challenge? We are! just a couple of reminders before we get to it.

To be eligible for the Random draw and a chance to win £10 to spend at Craft-Room we look for the shop logo and a link to the shop in your side bar.

Could you ask someone to check for you to see if you have word verification, like many challenges we ask you to turn it off to help us visit and comment on all your lovely projects. 

For the full rules please check the Pesky Rules page.


Here is Maria who selected this fortnight's theme

Hiya everyone. I absolutely love it when I go to other peoples homes and see handmade items and altered bits and pieces - they seem to give a place lots of character and individuality, so I thought a "Home Decor" theme would be a great challenge for this. Your creation could be anything from something for your wall or around the home, to giving a new lease of life to old furniture, to absolutely anything at all for the home! Use whatever you like - ink, paint, fabric, etc. Whatever you make will be unique to you and it's a great way to show off your talent and creativity. For inspiration, check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with, as they have made stunning pieces! I'd love you all to have a go and share your creations with us, and can't wait to see what you make! Maria x





Over to you we are all looking forward to seeing your home decor projects.

All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.
