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.

Winners - Challenges 54 & 55

Well, after much deliberation we would like to thank you first of all for the lovely entries received.  We did not have many entries for the brooch/pin challenge and the Mail Art one caused some confusion as it was asking for an actual envelope to be decorated rather than it just be mail art ie something to do with mail but we did attract quite a few entries for that one.  We think maybe one or two Posties will be delivering with a smile on their faces if this catches on - hope it does, it certainly brightens our day when a decorated envelope drops through the mailbox.

However the winner for this month is  Julia (10) for her lovely flowers and butterfly envelope in shades of blue


and the runner up is Julie (no 3) with her lovely brooch - unbelievably made out of denim.  Isn't it fab!


Congratulations to you both.  Please can both of you contact Neet whose email address is on her blog (button on the RH side) and she will send you your Blinkies which we hope you will display with pride and instructions for the winner to claim her prize from Oyster Stamps, our sponsors.

Thanks to all of you for your entries - we look forward to you carry on entering our challenges.  Our current one features "owls" - hope you join in.

Congrats to the winners. Well deserved too:) I'm so sorry for messing up the mail art challenge. I only saw "mail art" and went off and made something before I forgot to do the challenge. These eyes of mine cause so many problems for me. I will try to be more careful in future. I think I can do the next challenge. It's "Owls" and I can make anything... I've ordered the stuff to make my project, I have a plan:)) xx
