Challenges for Days - Wednesday's Challenges

As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at  

Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!

WE NEED HELP! Here is some more info on what we need ans what is expected of our volunteers: Join our Happy Band 
All you need is a blogger account and about one hour a week, please take a look at "Join our Happy Band."  There is so much we'd like to accomplish with this blog.  So if you have a little bit of spare time, then drop us an email.
