New ChallengesWplus9 Throwback Thursday
In case you missed it, there is a new challenge. Maureen is hosting a Throwback Thursday Challenge on the third Thursday of each month. She will posting three cards, each using the same basic layout and design elements featuring a "throwback" stamp set.
And you are invited to play along! Feel free to use any of Maureen's card as inspiration, or even the featured stamp set if you've got it. Use at least one Wplus9 product and upload your project to your blog or online photo gallery such as Flickr. Then link it up using the InLinkz widget on each post. There is a $20 store credit at wplus9.com each month for one random participant.
Sound like fun? There is still time to participate in this month's challenge, click here to check it out.The 30 Day Coloring Challenge
My friend Kathy Racoosin is hosting a really fun 30 day challenge that I'm pretty excited about. Here's a little excerpt from her blog:
The idea is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. Just five minutes that’s it. Some days you or I will have more time and that’s even better.It’s just about adding more time to color and carve out a little time for something that makes you happy.
I think it is so important to practice and to encourage each other. No one is ever amazing at anything the first (or third, or fifth time) time they try it. With practice though, we get better and better. And honestly, if we are having fun...who cares if its "good" or not! Right? I think that this challenge is perfect for encouraging all of us to just create - no plan needed.
I will definitely be playing along on Instagram. Be sure to check out all of the details here on Kathy's blog.
We have a lot of really exciting stuff on the horizon here at Wplus9.
New product, new illustrators, new collaborations. Fun fun stuff, I tell ya! I can't share just yet...but stay tuned, some are coming a bit sooner than others! ;o)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week is off to a great start!
