Christmas Countdown Design Team Expansion!

Hi everyone

Who wants to join our Design Team for a 2-month stint leading up to Christmas?! The Christmas Countdown begins at the start of November and we're on the hunt for 3 more crafters to join in the fun!

The current team are still enjoying themselves designing for us and so we've extended their stay for a bit longer! However, through the year we have had a couple of members drop off recently for various reasons. Our motto at Artfull Crafts is "Life comes first!", and we encourage people to contribute as much or as little as they are able. But sometimes it's hard to juggle all of life's committments. Early on Lydia Wiley from the USA pulled out and just recently Becks Caithness took the opportunity to retire. Michelle McArthur is featuring on the blog until the end of October, and then we'll farewell her as well. We've LOVED having these guys on the team. We wish you all the best in your crafting and personal lives.

This gives an opportunity to welcome 3 new members onto the team for a 2 month stint over the Christmas Countdown period. It's always the most exciting time of the year for the blog and we look forward to entertaining a large following over this time.

We'd really love to hear from people who are Christmas mad and who enjoy creating a range of papercrafting projects (cards, layouts, gifts, tags, home decor etc.)

If that sounds like you, then we would love you to send us samples of your crafting work (these don't have to be Christmas themed, but it's important to showcase a range of projects). You will be required to write blogposts for Artfull Crafts and use Facebook, so please only apply if you are happy to do this. Over the 8 week countdown, we'd like you to contribute at least 5 times (or even more if you're keen!).

Please either email a few images of your favourite projects to and ensure you put "Design Team Application" in the subject. Alternatively, send us samples of your work to Artfull Crafts, 24 George Street, Timaru.

This time we are restricting entries to New Zealanders only.
Entries close Friday 17th October. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!!
