are you curious for more???


it’s back…the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge!  our lovely friend linda ledbetter is hosting her new CC3C for the latest volume 3 of my book series “A Compendium of Curiosities”.  if you participated in the earlier challenges for volumes 1 and 2, then you know how much fun and inspiration this is going to be.  i’m so excited for this next challenge to begin, and even more excited to see all of the creativity shared with all who participate.  if you’re not familiar with what this challenge is all about, here’s a snippet from linda’s website:

The wait is nearly over! The Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge (a.k.a. “CC3 Challenge”… or “#CC3C) officially begins next Saturday, April 26! As with the first two Compendium Challenges, we’ll work our way through every technique in Tim Holtz’s book (but not in order, because we like to mix it up!).

These challenges will last for two weeks, giving everyone plenty of time to enjoy the journey. A new challenge will post every OTHER Saturday at 12:01 am Mountain Time.

To participate in the CC3 Challenge, you’ll need your own copy of Tim Holtz’s A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol 3CLICK HERE to order your autographed copy from Tim. Technique instructions won’t be posted here or on any of the Crew’s blogs– after all, Tim’s a huge inspiration to us, and we want to support him! You’ll also need a variety of crafting supplies and tools, which you’ll learn about in the book. Finally, you’ll need your own blog, or at least an online photo-sharing service like Flickr or Photobucket, in order to post your submissions.

if you don’t have your copy of “A Compendium of Curiosities – Vol.3” it’s not too late to order your signed copy right here.  this year linda has asked some of her crafty friends (aka the “curiosity crew”) to help out too, so click here to check out her website and learn more.  we’ve sent lots of great prizes along with other generous sponsors for this challenge, so in addition to being inspired, you have a chance to win stuff too.  hope you make time to join the challenge – we’ll be following right along to share in the fun…t!m
