Introducing the Feeling Crafty 12 in 12 on the 12th

One of my goals for 2012 is to make sure I get lots of crafty play time and I am sure I am not alone in setting out with that intention. While I was looking around for something to help me make more crafting time a reality and to keep me focussed I came across lots of weekly and daily challenges and projects all of which sounded very exciting but just a little bit daunting for me.

I was looking for something I felt I could keep up with and something that is flexible enough to follow my creative muse and my interests wherever they go. It needed to be something that I could responded to with whatever kind of project I wanted to do, be that a card, a scrapbook page, a fabric project, something knitted, a journal page or something I have not even thought of yet!

When I could not find what I was looking for I decided to set my own and the Feeling Crafty 12 in 12 was born! It has already grown as it will also be running on a forum I belong to and I am really excited about sharing it with you and about sharing the things I create in response to the prompts.

Each month on the 12th I will share a new challenge with you. The challenges will aim to give you a starting point to create whatever you want in line with that theme. All you have to do is make a date with your crafting space at some point during the month and have some fun. If you want to email me ( a picture of your creations even better – I will do a gallery of those I am sent for everyone to enjoy.

By the end of the year, if you play along every month you will have completed 12 challenges in 2012.

So today is the 12th of January and its time for our first 12 in 12 Challenge! January is the start of a new year, and this is a new challenge so our first challenge theme is New Beginnings. Your challenge is to create something with this theme and to incorporate an oval into your project somehow.

I have had a go at this challenge already and made a new home card – a new beginning for a friend in a new area, and have made the oval quite a focal point

I would love for you to join the challenge so email me ( a picture of your creation and lets all enjoy our crafty play time
