FRONT COVER ~ TCN March Craft Challenge

I do like the month of March and the start of Spring, everything starts to come alive again after the dormant stages of Winter (including myself, lol!).  Spring flowers start to bloom, birds are nesting, the Clocks go forward, we are celebrating; St David’s Day, St Patrick’s Day, Mothers Day and even Easter falls at the end of this month too, so there are lots going on.  Hence why I decided to call this challenge ‘March Madness’.

My challenge to you this month is to make something that tells me what March/Spring means to you? You can take inspiration from any of the events in March, but remember it must be handmade and you must think of a unique way to photograph your entry and sell it to me and the voters.  (Be warned I may reject an entry if the photograph is no good.  I will be doing it for your own good!) Also, Black & Grey are banned, I want colour????

March Flower: Daffodil

Birthstone: Aquamarine, Bloodstone & Jade

Memorable Dates (UK):

1. St David’s Day (1 March)

2. International Women’s Day (8 March)

3. St Patrick’s Day (17 March)

4. Mothers Day (10 March)

5. Spring begins (20 March)

6. Easter (29 – 1 April)

7. Clocks go forward (31 March)

Remember ANYBODY can enter the TCN Challenges, even if you don’t sell your items and you are just a hobbyist and of course you can also enter if you do sell your items and even if you are a professional. 

The challenge is not limited to people just in the UK, everyone is welcome to join in.  Also, your entry can be anything handcrafted from a piece of artwork, a photograph, jewellery, papercrafts, something you can wear, items for the home, soaps, candles etc etc.  The TCN Challenges are all about challenging yourselves and inspiring you to think more creatively.
