I was looking around for a 30 Day Blog Challenge to do, and happened up this one , that is a Creativity Challenge. It seemed a bit more up my alley than the usual 30 Day challenges, so I've decided to give it a go! I'm hoping it will give me a bit of structure for blogging in the next little bit while I'll be a bit busy with other things going on, as well as allow me the chance to share some of my crafty history and background.
Expect my first post later on today!
