The Crafty Network ~ 28th November Craft Challenge ~ All Things Festive!

23 Nov

Welcome to our last Craft Challenge for this year.  I can’t believe we have been doing the Challenge for nearly a year!  Yes, it started way back at the beginning of February as a bit of fun on our Facebook page!  With an idea to cheer us up on a wet and cold Winters day and it has grown and evolved, thanks to you and all your support.   Since then we have done 16 more Challenges including this one and each time I am amazed by the extremely talented crafters and how each of them have interpreted the theme, we have had some truly amazing entries.

So the theme for this week is of course ‘ALL THINGS FESTIVE’. Let’s celebrate Christmas in style and let’s show everyone your best crafts for the Festive season, it does not have to be purely Christmassy, just show me your unique interpretations for this time of year.  And please, please don’t let the theme put you off, your item could be a gift idea, everything is welcome.  I have seen so many comments throughout the year from people saying they have nothing to fit the theme, or they forgot, they didn’t have the time!  I have always been willing to ‘stretch’ the theme and this one is no exception and I must say again send in something you have already made, don’t feel like you have to make something specific for this challenge, although you can if you want to. 🙂 And do it NOW before you forget!!

Entries must be in by Wednesday 28th November @ midnight (GMT). Or at the very latest before I switch my PC on and check my emails on Thursday morning (around 8.30am) lol!!!

Also here is a quick reminder that in January 2013 we will start the vote to find the Ultimate Winner and 2 Runners up from all the past Winners and runners up from 2012, so your vote will really count then.

The WINNER will receive ~ £40 Hobbycraft Vouchers as well as a years worth of promotion on the Blog, including a feature and regular promotes on the TCN Facebook page.

2 x RUNNERS UP ~ £20 each Hobbycraft Vouchers

Then has an extra surprise the next 7 runners up with the most votes will receive an envelope which will either include just a token prize or a token prize plus a £5 Hobbycraft voucher. Only 4 of these envelopes will include the voucher and I will randomly choose which envelope gets sent to who, I won’t even know who will get what!


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 28th November at 12 midnight (GMT time). 

Only one entry (photograph) per person/business and please ensure you include at least one contact (Facebook page, Website, on-line shop, Blog url, along with a brief description of the item, this helps to promote your item).

Thanks & Good luck.
