Challenges for Days - Challenges by Date, not Day

The challenges on this list run by Date, not Day.
As with all our lists we have tried to check the rules of each challenge (key in sidebar)
but we strongly urge you to check for yourself.
Our lists are growing as we come across more challenges,
if you know of one we have not listed yet please tell us about it
either by leaving the info in a message below or send us an email at
ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com

Thank you to those who are finding us and adding challenges to our lists.
Have fun Crafting.
Thank you so much for joining us!


Team Call ~ We need some help!


TEAM CALL

The only requirement is you must be on Facebook 😊
There are a core group of us who regularly maintain these lists; we also have a few floaters for if and when they are needed. If one of us is taken ill or cannot not for any other reason update their list(s) we either have a sign up sheet if it is known ahead of time, or, one of us will fill in if there is an emergency. We would also like to add some more content if we get enough people.
Some of these lists only take about half an hour to update, others a little longer but they are fun to do as well as a great way to keep in touch with the challenges going on around the world. We are also a very friendly group of people and would welcome other people onto the team. Ideally, we would like to recruit 3 more people who could each take a list updating it each week.
If more people volunteer well they will be welcome and perhaps we can start to expand the site and share the news about other things who knows.
All that is required is that you have a computer with internet access and, if you are reading this, you do. Can you spare perhaps an hour a week to visit the sites listed and update the challenge details? This is a blogger site very easy to use. We have a 'secret' Facebook group where we share about challenges as well as our crafty (and other) news.
If you would like to help or know more please drop us a line at our email, ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com with "Team Call" in the subject line. Please include a bit about you and why you think you’d like to join our little family.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
