The Crafty Network ~ 12th September Craft Challenge ~ It’s Just Black & White!

07 Sep

Hello everyone, welcome back after the summer holidays, I hope you have all had a wonderful time?

It is always difficult to get back into the swing of things when you have taken a holiday, for some reason my brain is not quite in gear yet and trying to come up with a theme for this weeks craft challenge was more challenging than usual.   So as we had a very successful colourful theme a month or so back with a Rainbow of crafts, I’ve decided to keep this theme very simple and get back to basics with ‘It’s Just Black & White’.  I am looking this week for craft entries that are black, white, black & white or anything in-between, no other colours please.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with and I’m sure you won’t let me down with your inspirational creations!


Please interpret the theme however you wish, all you have to remember, it must be handmade.  Look at what you have already made, as I don’t expect you to make something specifically for the challenge, unless of course you want to.

Good luck everyone, fingers crossed you are inspired to send in an entry and please be brave enough to join in and send in a photo of your crafts just look at it as another way to promote your business and I’d love to encourage everyone to have a go! 🙂

All entries must be emailed to: and received no later than Wednesday the 12th September at 12 midnight (GMT time).  Only one entry (photograph) per person/business.  For the full rules please visit this link Mini Challenge Rules.

Thanks & Good luck.
