Happy New Year!

This is a time of reflection on the past year; on things we enjoyed or regret, on friends we made or lost, and on other changes in our lives, for the better or worse.  As we try to recall all of the highs and lows of the great expanse of time that has been 2011, it is also a time to consider goals for 2012.

Here at “CCC Central” there have been a lot of changes over the last year, but we have tried to keep the club fun and interactive, and hopefully we have been able to inspire some new projects.  We have really enjoyed seeing the ones you’ve all shared with us, and hope to see more exciting samples of your amazing creativity in the year to come!


Some people make resolutions.  Some people set goals.  Some people continue on without any retrospection (but we know you’re not like that!)  Whatever you call it, we hope you will have positive growth in your creative pursuits, and share it all with us here!

With all this reflection and goal setting already happening, your challenge is simple- we want to know 2 things:

Tell us (1) about something that inspired your creativity in 2011, and (2) what projects or crafts you would like to work on or learn about in 2012.

Just post a comment replying to this here or on the Facebook link to this post to enter! 

We had talked about starting club points, and I think that the changing of a year is as good a time as any!  Over the next few weeks we will be setting up the points system, but for participation in this challenge you can choose your prize:

  • 2012 Chipboard Calendar Kit 
    • (includes the month grids, spiral bound chipboard book and easel back stand) 
  • Club points to be used later for fabulous prizes 
    • (As we set up the points system we will determine how many points this gives you)
  • Something from the grab-bag 
    • (This is a mystery prize selected from the prize items we have been collecting- don’t worry, we try to pick something we think you will use!)

Committed Crafters always get double entries in challenges!  This month that means 2 times the prizes!  If you are a Committed Crafter, you get to choose 2 from the prize list!  Need an extra Calendar Kit?  Get 2!  Want the Calendar Kit and something from the grab bag?  You can!

If you are not a Committed Crafter, you can join any time- just click here to find out more!

Wishing you all a Safe & Creative New Year!

  1. My greatest inspiration for crafts during 2011 was my friends. They were there to challenge me to try new things and to see how I could expand my current craft skills.

    Stuff I want to learn this year...well I am attending a Fairy Faire this week to learn how to make fairy wings. That is something I think will be a fun craft to play with. I also want to work more on quilling projects.

  2. That's awesome, Cole! Thanks for sharing! I too can't thank my friends enough for inspiration and encouragement last year! I think that seeing my projects improve also helped propel me to continue crafting.
    This year I hope to keep the club active, online and in our community, and try out some new things like letterpress and quilling!
