Challenges by Date not Day, January 1st

Wishing you a very Happy New Year from all at Challenges for Days. This is the 1st of the month post, as usual, but being New Year's Day some blogs may not have updated today, so please forgive the number of TBAs! We will check regularly over the next few days to make sure all challenges are updated. 

You'll notice a change in our "By date" challenge list today -  the list was starting to get very cumbersome and confusing, especially for those challenges that post more than once in a month, so we have decided to break down the lists into four chunks. The vast majority of challenges start on the 1st of the month, so that is a stand alone list. It will be followed by another list on the 8th, covering new challenges that started between the 2nd and the 8th of the month, another on the 15th covering those that started between the 9th and 15th and a final one on or around the 22nd of the month covering any that post later in the month. 

This means that every challenge you see in each listing will be current and live, so you won't be confused by some of the weekly and fortnightly ones that may have closed earlier in the month. To see challenges posted on other dates of the month, look at the Blog Archive on the right or click on the appropriate label, also on the right. 

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

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