The countdown to Christmas

has begun---- scary!  I just do not know where this year has gone to.  I know there has been 12 challenges this year, well including this one I think!!!

I want to apologize for not posting winners for October.  I have been so busy organizing the blogs along with our new designers time ran way from me.  They will be posted as soon as possible - SORRY! 

This is the final challenge for 2014 and it will run until 1st February 2015.  The teamies need a well deserved break to be with their families and have time to prepare for the upcoming festivities.

The challenges for Altered Eclectics every month is ANYTHING GOES and it no different this month except we have more exceptionally talented ladies joining our already fabulous team.  Am so so pleased these ladies accepted the offer to jump aboard our challenge blog. Without further adieu please give these ladies huge love ...

Why not head on over to their blogs and leave love and not forgetting my long suffering teamies.  Love you all....

DT Posts

 I just want to say sorry to those of you who have not heard from me this weekend offering you a DT Post and did not make it this time. 

Believe me it really was a tough time choosing but a few - in fact myself and the team chose more than first anticipated.  You really are all so talented and we loved looking over your blogs.  I do hope you will continue to visit and join in with our future challenges.

Hugz and love

I want to top up on the numbers.  This challenge blog just asks you to enjoy your creating.  

The challenges run monthly so just one project a month.

We do not have sponsors so you can use anything you like and even create what you like as long as it is altered art, mixed media NO CARDS.  

Everyone is required to comment on 2 numbers -  these will be sorted out once in situ.

There is no fixed appointment and if there is a problem when you it is not possible to join in on occasion just let us know so we can cover for you.

No previous DT experience is necessary and any level of crafter is welcome here - all art is beautiful

Another month, another challenge....

Hi everyone - It's October already and time is just passing by so quickly or am I the only one thinking that? First of all we welcome back Sandie who previously joined the team when we started up. She has found time to slot back in from where she left and very happy we are about that.  Welcome back Sandie.

 We want to thank each and every one of you who drop by to visit and join in with our challenges.  Without you we would not exist as a challenge blog.  We really do appreciate it, truly we do.  I also want to say that last months entries were fantabulous as always.  I want to apologise if we have not made comments on all blogs.  We are very thin on the ground at the moment but we are having a DT call to rectify this.

This month is as always ANYTHING GOES so let your imaginations run wild and let your hands do the creating and then come on over and share the outcome with us - we would love to see them all .  

Now feast your eyes on the DT makes - they are as fabulous as always
