Need a creative boost? Join our new DIY Craft Challenge! Each month we ( will choose a theme, and you get to run with it, then share what you make. You can stick strictly to the theme, or do something totally unexpected. Your creation is sure to inspire someone else, taking this creative community to the next level!

Share Your Project!

To share your project, email with the following info:
• at least one photo of the finished piece (shots of your process are also welcome!)
• a little bit about yourself & where you’re from
• how you got from the theme to your final product
• links to your social media/blog/website (optional)

We will post our top 10 favorite submissions on the blog at the end of the month + award PRIZES!

October Challenge: Fall Leaves

Our favorite sign of fall is a bright crunchy bed of fallen leaves– and we think that’s a great jumping off point. You can use actual fall leaves you’ve collected, or use the ‘fall leaves’ as a theme for your project. Any and all materials and mediums are encouraged! This challenge is open to ALL AGES, so don’t be afraid to get your kids involved too. The challenge officially begins today, October 1, 2014 and ends on October 29, 2014. We will post our top 10 favorite projects + announce the award winners on October 30th. Have fun and happy crafting!
