Guest at Desert Island Crafters - Little Things Bring Joy!


A few weeks ago I was picked in the winning list at the Desert Island Crafters challenge.
If you haven't played there before then you should give it a go as it is a fun concept.
The whole idea is that you are given a list of 10 items and you must include at least 3 of them on your project, easy eh?
So as a winner I got to host a challenge and my crafting itinerary is:

1.Color Your Image (any coloring medium) (check!)
2.Stitching (check!)
3.Use a quote for a sentiment (check!)
4.Something with Wings (check!)
5.Make it Pop Up (check!)
6.Use 3 different shapes (check!)
7.Make it Manly (fail)
8.Use felt/fabric (not ribbon) (fail)
9.Give it Life (use an image of something alive) (check!)
10.Use 3 different colors only (apart from skin/hair) (check!)

So to play you have to include at least 3 of them, should be fun don't you think?
