Festive Friday & Fall Hop
Festive Friday & Fall Hop
Challenges are the answer to a question
I was really happy to be working on the latest Festive Friday challenge because I needed a project for a Fall Video Hop that a friend was putting together. I took a look at the Inspo List and though the video hop was to be fall, but not Halloween projects, I was able to use the list to come up with just the perfect project! It was the perfect answer to “What am I going to make?!”

That’s the true beauty of our remodeled challenge. Though the Inspo List is based on items related to a (perhaps unusual) holiday or festivity, the resulting project doesn’t have to reflect that event at all! As a matter of fact the majority of the Design Team projects have nothing to do with Halloween or the Day of the Dead!

Here’s my take:
From the Inspo List, I picked: Black, Bright Colors and Flowers.

It’s a new year for Festive Friday!
Festive Friday is back with our first challenge of 2020. If you have a goal to add more creative time to your schedule, then challenges are a great way to get started.
Determined to be confident in your watercoloring this year?
As we look to 2020, I’m sure you’re thinking about some #craftgoals you’ve had on your list. I know a lot of people “want” to watercolor – backgrounds, flowers, characters…. but they are afraid to take the plunge.
Today’s card tugs at my heartstrings
I love animals. Sometimes, I think I love animals more than people… I know you know what I mean.
