We are NOT closing in 2022!

Hi everybody! I've changed my other mind, just yesterday, and decided not to close my challenge blogs in 2022! It's been a whirlwind over the past 24 hours getting them ready for the new year but I know this will make a lot of people happy since there have been so many other challenges that have closed down over the past couple years.

I've made some changes to our challenge structure, and more detailed information will be available later this evening in the 'New Playing Guidelines' document. Here are some highlights:

1. Challenges will be every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November) and last approximately six weeks. 

2. Eight entries will be allowed in each challenge and you can combine our challenges with as many others as you wish. The more the merrier!

3. Only blog entries will be allowed since we require listing our challenge and linking back to our challenge. No more entries from Facebook, Instagram, or other social media sites, please.

4. Winners and Top Picks will be announced on the 1st of every other month with the new challenge details rather than posting a separate winner post.

5. We will not be running a DT call. My co-owner (Tina) and I will be providing challenge inspiration. 

6. We'll have new badges, and a different blog theme is planned so things will look a little different when you visit tomorrow morning for the new challenge!

7. Please use the email address on our Contact page if you have any questions or need direction. 

Hugs,
Leslie

Your hard work month after month has never gone unnoticed! <3 We will announce this month's Winner and Top Picks on the 10th of January and then we'll be on hiatus for the rest of the year. The plan right now is to run a DT Call in September 2022 with the expectation of resuming our challenges in January 2023. Be sure to subscribe to new posts by email (over on the right sidebar) so you don't miss any new information that's posted!

The Merry Little Girls have been busy creating some pretty amazing Christmas projects to inspire you to play along with us this month! Get ready to "ooh and ahh"...


Feel free to visit our designers' blogs for all the details on their DT inspiration projects and to let them know you love what you see - they would absolutely love it! :)

As a reminder, you can enter up to five projects in our challenges! And be sure to check out our sister blogs, Love To Scrap Challenge BlogLove To Craft Challenge Blog, and Mix It Up Challenge Blog where you can can enter up to five projects in each of these challenges as well!
