Challenges for Days - Wednesday Challenges

By now you have probably already heard about our 5th birthday celebrations which you can read all about on our pinned post here. Don't forget to check it every day to see whose blog the day's giveaway is on: today I'm excited to tell you that it is on MY blog (Jane) - Onions and Paper.  If you have missed a day's giveaways, don't worry, you can go back and enter as they are open until the end of the celebration.

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 ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  

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 and 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.
