Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

On the first Sunday of the month, at 6pm UK time, we will set a new challenge which will close on the 28th of that month at midday. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted on the first Sunday in the month (midday usually) before the new challenge - don't forget to come and check if you are a winner.

Meet the Quirky Design Team

Hi I'm Cazzy, I live in the UK, in Wiltshire, and am Mum to two grown boys and two fur babies.
I joined the Quirky DT when the blog was first set up (well actually before the blog was set up, when we had a small forum). When key members of the team left I took over the role of administrator, challenge co-ordinator and point of contact. As well as making example projects and creating posts in turn for my own challenges, I work out the yearly schedule with the team and sponsors, and arrange the challenge prizes. 
I am point of contact also for the winners, and I make the winner's badges, arrange prizes and send images and details to the Guest Designers, and add their project photos, links and write ups to the blog. I also check and edit the the blog posts when necessary.
I used to do all of this and work full time as an accountant in the Civil Service, but I have taken early retirement and I find that Quirky takes up so much of my time I don't know how I did it all when I was working!
I became a granny in 2012, and I got back into crocheting which used to be my main hobby. I am also a keen photographer. I have a knitting machine which is packed away, I will get back to using that one day!
I became a member of the Made in Bradford on Avon community shop also in 2012 I think, and sell some of my cards there as well as volunteering to work in the shop and other activities like fund raising.
We built an extension to accomodate all of my stash, and here I am sitting in it peering at the webcam! Terrible photo of me!

Written by Cazzy - until Lyn gets round to changing it!
Lyn is not only a talented artist who sells her own line of digital images, she is an author of a number of books. As well as this she runs a busy pet sitting business in the New Forest, and helps her sister with her animal rescue organisation.
Lyn is mum and granny too, and her family are scattered across the pond and in the U.K.

Hello, hola und Hallo! My name is Pat Martin, better known as Patacake. I joined the crafting world when I went to my first rubber stamp workshop. I was hooked, until I discovered all the fun and new supplies for scrapbooking. Once I unearthed the digital world of images, papers and elements, I’ve kept very busy. I am an eclectic artist.

I am married with two grown children, one still in college. The other has gifted me with six grandchildren and a daughter-in-law who shares my love of crafting. We live outside of Chicago (go Blackhawks!). The newest member of the family is a rescue dog, a Silkie Terrier named Wilson.
I belong to crafting groups on Yahoo and design for a few challenge blogs as well as the Outlawz. 
I write for my own blog as well as monthly essays at the Path of Positivity. I've made my own YouTube tutorials, but they're pretty primitive. I enjoy a challenge, and card making is probably my go-to crafting activity amongst all my hobbies. As always, crafters, I have fun!

Hiya, my name is Margaret but I do prefer to be called Marg and I'm 54 years old. I have 2 daughters, the eldest is married & lives a few miles away. She's given me a fab son-in-law and two gorgeous grandsons. My youngest daughter is 18 and studying hard at college, in her 3rd year of Art & Design.
Ive been crafting for most of my life but my serious card making/papercraft & upcycling came into effect almost 6 years ago and I've not looked back. Art & Craft runs in the family so I grew up with being surrounded by knitting, sewing and drawing/painting. All of my elder siblings love to make/draw/sew etc (even my brother) and I love to create but I cant knit to save my life lol. 

I am quite severely disabled but I craft to keep my hands and mind occupied and it works lol. I love digi stamps but I also like rubber stamps. I have no special artist that I prefer and I have no special style of design.I am honoured to be invited to join Cazzy and all the other DT members of this fabulous challenge blog.
