Hello! I'm feeling very chuffed with myself tonight as, you might have noticed, I have finally worked out how to get a button onto my sidebar! YAY!!! (I did have some help - I found a tutorial on Bella Dia) I can't tell you how frustrating it has been, not being able to do it, but now that I have I must go and write it all down quickly so that I don't forget!
But ANYWAY, back to the subject, Julie at Up Up Creative is hosting a creative challenge called word play - basically, once a month a word will be chosen and then participants have a month to create something using that word as their inspiration, it could be sewing, drawing, painting, writing, etc. There will be a flickr group too for folks to post pics of their creations. This idea really appealed to me - I sometimes think that I'm not very good at coming up with ideas for things, but the seaside swap has seen me with ideas coming out of my ears, and I thought it would be really interesting to participate in something like this - to push myself a little bit and have a go at creating something just for the challenge of it. Also, as much as I love swaps (and you know I LOVE swaps!), with this the only pressure will be from myself - I won't need to worry about getting something posted off in time or making something that a swap partner would like and, if I decide not to participate some months, then that's fine too. But I hope I won't feel like that too often. I can't wait to find out what the first word will be! Does anyone else fancy playing too?
