Ok, so a random post for a Tuesday evening, but I wanted to share this on here, as something other bloggers may be interested in taking part too!
First an introduction: In September 2013, Emma at Life is Peachy (do give that link a click to head over to her blog) launched #CraftBlogClub on Twitter – a twitter chat hour for craft bloggers, lovers of craft blogs and crafting alike. The aim was create a fun, non-competitive arena to talk about anything craft-related or, indeed, blogging related, as well as throwing in monthly challenges. [Her own words].
This month Co-Host Fiona at Fizzi~Jayne Makes (visit her too 😀 it’s a demanding post this really isn’t it!) has set the challenge, and has given me permission to copy her blog post (which you can find here) right here too:
We haven’t had a challenge for a couple of months whilst we enjoyed the summer holidays, if you went away I hope you had a lovely break. Now the kids are back at school and we’ve had the last bank holiday until Christmas it’s time to lift our moods and set a challenge.
It may only just be September but there is certainly a nip in the air and I have even been tempted to put on the heating! (But I have resisted so far) so as we put the BBQ away and find our winter boots at the back of the wardrobe the theme for this challenge is Winter! Thank you to @kay_O who came up with the idea of a winter theme following a chat about knitting on #CraftBlogClub.
- There aren’t really rules as you can interpret this theme how you like. If you knit, crochet or sew, you may be inspired to make a winter garment/accessory or use a wintery colour palette to create something for a project of your choice.
I have set up a #CraftBlogClub Winter Challenge board on Pinterest to inspire you if you are stuck for ideas. If you would like to add your inspiration to the board let me know so I can add you as a pinner.
- Present your lovely project in a blog post by 7th October. There will be a linky set up on THIS BLOG to showcase your makes and do take some time to have a gander at the other posts, it’s lovely to see some of the amazing creativity we have in our #CraftBlogClub!
- Let us know how you’re doing throughout the month and use our #CraftBlogClub hashtag to keep up to date and also #WinterCBC.
I hope you will join in and I can’t wait to see what everyone makes!!…
As you may have noticed I got a bit of credit here *blush* for coming up with the idea! (It was a team effort honestly!) and I am indeed working on a knitting project I haven’t shared on here! So if you want to see what’s happening, and get involved, do visit us on Tuesday evenings (7-8pm UK time) and feel free to add me on Twitter @Kay_O.
Hope you’re having a great week!
