I've been a bit wrapped up this week with setting everything up for the new Handmade Harbour design team, and now it looks like we are ready to roll with a brand new midweek papercraft challenge. It will be weekly (every Wednesday), anyone can join in and the design team will be picking a winner every week, who will get a free digi stamp and a winner's blog badge (for bragging rights)! To be in with a chance of winning, you'll need to use a Handmade Harbour digi stamp (this free digistamp of a cupcake will do!).
I'm hoping it will work in a similar way to Handmade Monday - you'll be able to link up in the same way and visit other bloggers. It's called the Midweek Papercraft Party and each week there's a theme (although the first couple of weeks, the theme is "Anything Goes" which is kind of not quite a theme!). If you're into papercraft, you are more than welcome to join in with your latest project!
Meanwhile, it's still Christmas in August here. I've been working on making a snowglobe for Craftseller magazine and the snow gave me a few problems on this one! Do you know how hard it is to track down white glitter in August? (Maybe that's a year-round thing, I don't know...) I trailed round art shops, pound shops, stationery shops. Even my local (very large) Hobbycraft has a very limited supply of the stuff. I didn't order it online as my deadline was so tight, but I wish I had done - I would have much preferred larger glitter (if you know what I mean) rather than the superfine stuff I bought from Hobbycraft.
What has your week been like?
