Super Fun Announcement
This entire project will serve as a Gift for a fabulous event I am taking part in called The Mischievous Crafter hosted by the Admins from the group, Scrapbook Friends and More Crafts.
This event is going to be so fun!  
I am on the edge of my seat waiting to play!
PLEASE NOTE*--- You must be an active member of the SFMC Group and BE PRESENT on December 12th in order to Join The Fun!

The object of the Event goes a little like this.....
---You CREATE a project which will be gifted to another event participant.

---The project should have a value of at least $10 if you were to sell it at a craft fair.

---You must have your project finished by December 11th, as the Event takes place on December 12th.

---The Mischievous Crafter is the group's version of Dirty Santa or White Elephant (different people call it different things).  Each participant will have a chance to select the item they desire on their turn.  In turn each participant will have the options of selecting an item that has not been selected or taking an item that has been selected. (items can only be stolen 3 times. The third time it is stolen that person is the owner.)

Crafty Coersion
The SFMC Facebook Group is an amazing place to meet new friends, learn new craft techniques and styles, play games, and chit chat with crafters from all over the world.  I have had a wonderful experience since participating with the group
just recently and enjoy the fellowship and inspiration I have gained since doing so.

New members are joining SFMC each and every day!
PLUS:  There is a celebration in the midst---SFMC will be reaching 1,000 Members soon!  YOU SHOULD JOIN TODAY!


Keep Crafting,
