New Year at Our Creative Corner



      Laura here! - with a very special post to tell you all how Our Creative Corner will work in 2014.......
    
   I am so very lucky to have the most amazing team working on Our Creative Corner.  Behind the scenes we have all been working together on making plans for this year - all of us coming up with ideas to make Our Creative Corner bigger and better than ever.

      Some things remain the same.  There is still the same wonderful Design Team who will be here to inspire you each month. Our challenges will still be monthly and we have all been planning some inspiring challenges for you for the year ahead!

     You will have noticed that we had a Guest Designer last month - wasn't Lynne absolutely amazing?  We will be having a Surprise Designer visit us each month to add further inspiration for our challenges, and we are so looking forward to each visit!  Come and visit us on the 11th January to see who this month's amazing Guest Designer is - you won't be disappointed!!!

And now onto the biggest news.... We are all so pleased to announce that this year we will be sponsored by some wonderful craft businesses who are donating some very generous prizes for lucky crafters to win! 







Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we now can offer a prize each month.  The prize will be allocated by selecting an entry via Random.org.

     We will still be judging and selecting a 'Top Talent' winner from the entries, and that person will be invited to appear at Our Creative Corner.  All winners will be announced on the 8th of each month - the randomly selected prizewinner, and the chosen 'Top Talent' Winner and Top 3.

      You should also watch out for our brand new 'Sponsor Spotlights'.  Each month there will be three posts where our design team will show items they have made using products from that month's sponsor.  These 'Sponsor Spotlights' will be a great way for you to see what is available to buy from the companies, as well as some inspiring ideas from the Our Creative Corner design team.  Our design team won't be following the OCC challenge theme for the 'Sponsor Spotlights'. The creations for the Spotlights will be 'Anything goes' - so there will be plenty of surprises along the way!

      So get ready, because in 2014 Our Creative Corner will be featuring more creativity than ever before!

      And one final change.... there are no longer two teams at Our Creative Corner.  We will now all be sharing our creations with you on the 1st of each month!

      So that is all the details of how the OCC will work over the next year......We really hope you will enjoy all our challenges and why not have a go?  You could be featured as our Top Talent, you could be named as one of our Top 3, and now you have the added bonus of being in the draw to win a fantastic prize!

We are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead at the OCC - thanks so much for being here!!!
