Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

On the first Sunday of the month, at 6pm UK time, we will set a new challenge which will close on the 28th of that month at midday. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted on the first Sunday in the month (midday usually) before the new challenge - don't forget to come and check if you are a winner.

Challenge 40: Around The World by Caro

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenge blog and thank you to everyone who joined in with Cazzy's fun recipe challenge. We had some wonderful entries and the winner voted for by the public was designed by Denise from The Crafty Den. The design team also chose their favourite, which was Clare aka Distressed Miss (we loved your second entry). Congratulations ladies, would you please take a winners banner from the side bar, to display on your blog. This also means, we would love you both to join us as Guest Designers sometime over the next few weeks!
Now, talking about Designers, we have had lots of interest and will be announcing the new design team in the next few weeks. In the meantime, as you all know, it is challenge time again here on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog and this time it is my turn, aka Caro's turn to set the challenge, which is 'Around the World!'. Feel free to interpret this in anyway you chose...travel, a different country etc and yes, as it is coming up to Christmas we will be lenient... penguins are from Antarctica, and polar bears are from the Arctic! We look forward to seeing your craft projects, and don't forget this is a mixed media challenge, so any craft project can be submitted as long as it can be interpreted as Around The World!

Add your name and direct link to your make via InLinkz below, then leave a comment and we'll pop over and say hi! Have fun! Here is the inspiration from the design team.
