Weekly update


Did I miss a week? Sorry about that, holiday shenanigans seem to have gotten the better of me this December... Anyways, while I might have forgotten about updating, you guys sure were busy! Check these awesome new submissions:

You have a few days left to submit your creations to the challenge and still be eligible for Member of the Month! And if you missed the challenge you missed, there will be another chance at the end of next year!

Previous updates


Hello hello! We've had some wonderful new submissions this past week, check it out:

Hello everyone! I sort of forgot that it was Friday last week, sorry about the missed update! Anyways, we have a couple of great submissions, check them out:

You've still got until the end of the year if you're looking to try one of our old challenges! And a few people have requested that we do this every year, so you'll probably have another chance to give 'em a try next year, too!



To all our American members, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I sure did. Anyways, we don't have any submissions for this challenge yet, but it's still early and this time you've got all the way until the end of the year to work on it! There's so many challenges to try, I hope you all find one you'd like to give a go- and if you miss your chance this year, I'm going to start making this an annual thing, so there's always next year, too!

Also, we've now added a permanent list of Creative Craft Challenges to our Useful Links (on our profile page), which I will keep updated. This way you'll always have a reference of what we've done in the past, if you care to check it out.

Welcome to this month's Creative Craft Challenge!


The Creative Craft Challenge is a monthly feature where we introduce our members to different crafts. Every month I’ll give you a little background on a craft that you might not have heard of and show you a few great tutorials to encourage you to give it a try and show us your work.

So join me every month and put your skills and creativity to the test with lessons and tutorials, examples, and a place to show off your work. Your submissions will be featured in our favorites gallery and in this very blog!

Remember, the aim of the challenge is to introduce you to crafts that you might not have heard about or tried before. They won't require any expensive materials or years of training and expertise to complete. The idea is to challenge you to go out of your usual field of work and try something new!

This challenge is NOT a contest or a display of professional work, but a fun opportunity to broaden your crafting horizons. NO prizes are involved and everyone will be featured!

To clear up a question a few people have asked: The ArtisanCraft gallery folders and favorite folders are not linked- you can submit the same piece to both the gallery and the favorites if you like, no problem. Also, the two deviations per month limit does not apply to favorites folders, so please feel free to add as many submissions as you would like.

Member of the Month


At the end of every month one participant will be chosen as ArtisanCraft's Member of the Month and will be featured on our profile page for the entire next month. After my (longer-than-expected) hiatus, I'm happy to announce the Member of the Month for August. It was a tough choice, but this time it's Madame-mari-mortem. Congratulations!

The Challenge You missed


I have reappeared! Hiatus is over! Sorry that took longer than expected, but I'm back now and ready to start with a special challenge for the end of the year and the beginning of a new year.

Did you miss one of our previous challenges? Hear about it too late, or just too busy to participate? Well, now's your chance to make up for lost challenges! This month, you can choose any one of our previous 26 challenges to try your hand at.

Plus, this time around the challenge is going to last longer- you have until the start of the new year to try your new craft! It's a little trial run- in the past, a few people have mentioned that they wished the challenges lasted longer so they had more time to work. If you all like the new, longer challenges, I might start doing the challenges every two months, giving you twice the time to work on your projects.

This month's challenge suggested by Itti.

Here's links to the previous challenges. Check out the journal entries for tutorials so you can try it yourself.

I already completed paper flowers and the teru teru bozu ones, I'm just waiting on daylight to take photos of the teru teru bozu and my friend to come over on Friday for pictures for paper flowers. Also thinking I'll do decorated eggs, decoupage, recycled recycling bins, lanterns, and dreamcatchers. I need to pick up some additional supplies this weekend to complete them such as the craft ring for the dreamcatcher and the like. But I'm gonna try to complete them all in the next week or so, depending on time constraints and the like. I'm really looking forward to it :D
