Susi and I have had a lot of fun hosting Iron Craft in 2011. We may not have done all 52 challenges, but it really inspired us to craft more and try new things throughout the year. We are ready to start a new year of challenges and hope you’ll all challenge yourselves and join in too!
This year we’ll be changing things up a little. Instead of 52 challenges, we will have 26 and you will have two weeks to work on each one. A lot of people thought two weeks would give them more time to do either bigger projects or fit any project in their busy lives. Also posting day will now be on Tuesday and new challenges will be posted on Wednesday .
Here’s how it works:
Every other Wednesday, one of us will post a creative challenge*. You will have two weeks to complete a project based on that theme. The challenges may ask you to craft around a color or theme, use a particular material or even make a specific object. Every other Tuesday, we’ll spotlight the results of the challenge from our Flickr group. We’d love to have you join us for the year of what we hope will be a lot of fun.
The rules are simple. Each week’s challenge should be done in the the two week period specified. Pictures of finished projects should only be posted on the Tuesday posting date though, workroom pictures can be posted throughout the two weeks. This is a friendly, supportive group and we ask that all comments on pictures and blog posts stay that way.
