A Vintage Journey begins...

Hello everyone!  I'm so, so excited to be able to share some news of a brand new challenge blog with you today.

It's called A Vintage Journey and it's all the brainchild of the brilliant Brenda Brown of Bumblebees and Butterflies (how's that for alliteration?!).  The challenge will centre around the vintage/shabby style and especially the inspiration, products and general all-round fabulousness of the one and only Tim Holtz.  I'm thrilled to be part of the Design Team on this brand new adventure.


It's a fortnightly challenge, and we'll be kicking off with the first theme on the 7th March, and every other Friday from then on.  You can find all the details here, as well as the roll-call of fabulous crafters alongside whom I'm proud to play.   

We've been generously sponsored by Country View Crafts, so there'll be a prize on offer every fortnight.  And keep an eye out on Mondays as well, as there'll be other excitements and offerings in store along the journey too.

I am happy to continue with my journey through time.
