How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
We all love a challenge for many reasons, first it take away endless minuets thinking and deciding what your going to do. Save time and follow the sketch, may be it is a colour combinations which might be something you struggle with, they challenge you to do something that fits the brief, it may be out with your comfort zone but that's a challenge in itself. There is the added bonus that there is every chance you can win as the choice is random and not judged. A little prize now and then is very much appreciated, not that anyone needs more its just nice to win, therefor the prize is usually not of great value but its the taking part that counts, right.?
Which challenge?, well if your in it to win it, you go for those unknown challenges that have very few entries, the odds are then in your favour. Or you could go for one which is based on a brand , there are plenty of those.
But there are many which are not part of any business, just a group of crafters that have put together something for the love of it and gathered up sponsors who donate prizes in exchange for a little publicity.
Let me count the ways.....................there are 100's of challenge blogs, all over the world, and as I said earlier, my trip to Russian blogs opened my eyes as to how there are trends in different parts of the world.
Which challenge to enter, that's a choice that only you can make.
We have our own challenge blog as you already know, but occasionally we will sponsor something that compliments our brand and in 2011 I hope to strengthen our ties to other products in the craft world.
We have taken a sponsorship spot over on Fridays Stamp Something and I look forward to seeing your sweet cards being entered in their challenges. :)
