We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

To Comment or Not!

After much deliberation and consultation if you do not follow the Guidelines we will not be leaving a comment - as much as it hurts us not to.  It takes us quite a while to comment on blogs and we want to leave more than a cursory comment plus we have to check if you are eligible for the prize or not, so please make sure you have followed all the requirements or we will not be leaving a comment in the future.

So agree Neet!
I'm getting heartily sick of the smorgasbord approach which seems to be infecting the blogworld!
I appreciate that you take the time to look and comment in a personable way. Recently I created a very large canvas ....the glib comment....great card!! Will I be back there...No!
I am also not visiting blogs and challenges where it has become just an extensive shopping list.
Thanks for taking a stand and putting it out there. I can tell you the same deliberation and discussion is taking place with other groups too!
I am sharing your post to keep a discussion rolling.
If I am back to play you know I squeezed time from a full on work period.
Quality over quantity every time.

Absolutely right. Am on 2 DTs and it drives us nuts that people can't follow a simple rule- like follow the theme!!! If I ever think my project is borderline I would say so - some people just don't read, they must have a list of regular challenges and just link everything to them. Get a life. I would much rather know someone knew I thought about my project.

Now what have you asked for this week and can I link this sparkly tag I just made.........

Indeed, I also should have read better. I hope it was good right now. Greetings Janny

I think it is fair enough not to comment on entries that don't meet the criteria. It must have been a tough decision, but you have stated it well. Those generic comments seem pointless, so I appreciate that you are genuinely interested in the entries.
