Challenges For Days - Challenges By Date Not Day

It's time for the update for challenges that begin on the 1st to the 7th of the month!  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.  Thank you to those who are finding us and adding challenges to our lists.

Have fun Crafting.
