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.

Challenge 64 - A Small Book

and we mean "tiny".  Yes, we are asking you to make a book that is no larger than 2"x 3" (think that translates to 5 x 7.5 cms).  Gosh, that small, really?

Here is what we came up with

Sam made this lovely jotter complete with hessian and button

Neet made a tiny sea themed book

Whilst Wendy made a felt cover for her pretty poppy book

Now what will you make for us to see?  What about a domino book, I remember Tim Holtz making one of those a long time ago.  Or will you make a jotter like Sam, or a tiny book of pictures like Neet? Go on, you know you want to try this, see you later.

Remember the Rules and Guidelines please

*Entries must fully comply with the fortnightly theme (this means your creation must follow the rules of the theme set).

*Please link directly to your entry and not just to your blog (this means only link the address for your post to the challenge and not the general address of your blog).  For instructions on how to do this please see page 'Making a Direct Link'.
*Please ensure you make a link back to this challenge blog in your post (this means you need to include a link to Artful Times Challenge blog when writing up your post).  For instructions on how to do this please see page 'Linking Back'.
*Please write a brief description of how you created your entry and some of the materials used, even if it's only a brief list at the end of your posting, as it's nice to know what was used and how it's been done.
*Please do not back link to previous posts prior to the date of the challenge.
*A maximum of 5 challenges may be combined.
*You may enter the challenge several times as long as each entry is with a different creation.
*We encourage you to visit each other's blogs and leave a comment, even ours, it means a lot!

*If you have 'Word Verification' may we ask that you please turn it off, as this makes commenting easier for everyone, especially with the new blogger words which are difficult to read at times.  The comment moderation seems to be a more successful way of avoiding unwanted comments.
*Link your entry before 17.55 on the following Thursday.
*Any entries which do not follow the above challenge guidelines may not be commented on by the DT and will not be entered into the prize draw.

Thanks to the lovely ladies who joined in with our challenge last week.  Some really great stuff going on - and it is all about quality not quantity and although we only had a few entries they were "Quality".

Lovely mini books ladies! Will put my thinking cap on hoping I can create something worthy.

Lovely mini book examples. A shame I missed the deadline for this challenge as I was away but I did make a little seed book so have been trying!

I missed the deadline for this challenge as I was away but have posted my mini book on my blog anyway. Great examples and a good challenge again. Thank you all for the inspiration.
