Looking for Volunteers Please!


The only requirements are: a Facebook account as a private FB group is used for all the group communications, and a knowledge of copy and paste techniques within Blogger is needed for creating the weekly posts, along with access to a computer with internet access.

Each day of the week is assigned to one volunteer to maintain. Usually, the same volunteer updates the same list regularly ( so the Monday person maintains the Monday list, the Tuesday person the Tuesday list and so on). There are usually extra volunteers available to help out in the case of sickness, holiday and the like.

Some of these lists take as little as half an hour and some take a little longer. Once you become proficient with your list, you will find it takes less time to complete. The lists are fun to update and it's a great way to keep in touch with the challenges going on around the World. We're a friendly and helpful group and we enjoy "giving back" to the crafting community by providing this list.

Ideally, we'd like to recruit several people to our team with each taking their own list.

If you would like to help or want to know more then please send us an e-mail to CFDinfo12@gmail.com with "TEAM CALL" in the subject line. Please include a little bit about yourself and why you would like to join our team of volunteers.

Looking forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance.

Challenges for Days - Friday Challenges

Happy Friday!  I'm here with another update to our Friday challenges.  

Please keep in mind that we strive to make sure that our lists are up to date.  Mistakes do happen (there is that human factor 😊), so if you do spot an error, please leave a comment letting us know.  We also welcome emails at: CFDinfo12@gmail.com.

Please check to be sure your entry qualifies for the challenge you enter and that the challenge is still open for submission.  -- Debbie

Good Morning! Check out each challenge's rules to be sure your entry qualifies.  There is nothing more frustrating than doing all that work and entering just to be told you missed a condition and do not qualify!  If you know of a new challenge, or a challenge change, please either leave us a message or email us at  CFDinfo12@gmail.com

These are the Thursday Challenges we are aware of. The lists are prepared by humans and that means mistakes can (and will) be made; if you spot one, please let us know. If you know of a challenge we don't list, please leave us a message in the comment box.ui
