HIMCR #237 - No Pinks or Reds!

HAPPY SATURDAY!


It's good to be home and it's GREAT to have my husband home after over 4 months of being apart!!

I know this challenge might not seem appropriate at this time but I thought it would be fun and maybe a little 'out of the box'! It's the first Satruday of the month so it's a color challenge and instead of giving you a choice of colors this time we decided to limit a couple of colors!

The challenge is:


HIMCR #237 - No Pinks or Reds!

So you can use ANY colors you wish except for Pinks or Reds! Perfect for a challenge close to Valentine's day, huh? Have fun!


The sponsor is My Besties!
The giveaway is all 3 My Besties images used by HIMCR Design Team!
You have until Saturday, February 13th at 2AM Central time, to link up your creation to get entered into the giveaway this week. When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR237.



Now some inspiration from the

Hiding in My Craft Room Design Team

using images from My Besties

HIMCR #235 WINNER!

Well, it's not Wednesday! We were out of town this past week visiting my father-in-law and it was such a busy time. All 11 of his children were there to see him before he dies and it was wonderful to be there and to get to see him while he was still lucid. He's still hanging on and it could be any day or it could take up to two weeks. Although we think it will be sooner rather than later. He's lived such a great life and influenced so many people. It was a true testament to his life to see all 8 of his boys circling his bed giving him a blessing of release.

On with the winner:

First a challenge recap:

HIMCR #236 - Freestyle!

I hope everyone is having a Great Saturday so far!

It's been such a long couple of days. We are all here with my father-in-law, the military even flew my husband here from his deployment to say his goodbyes to his father. I suppose it's just a matter of a waiting game. Plus, the medicines they are switching him to with make him less lucid. So it's good that we get to talk to him before then.

The challenge this week since it's a 5th Saturday is:

HIMCR #236 - Freestyle!

Anything goes! YIPPEE!!

HIMCR Design Team Call!

A while back HIMCR had a Design Team call and unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it we are in need of a few more DT members! We had some DT members that we're going to be staying on with us but had to step down. Soooooo .......
 

Hiding in My Craft Room is once again looking for a few creative artists to promote and give inspiration to our readers for our weekly challenges. Challenges are posted / scheduled to post each Saturday at 5AM Central time.

Anything else you want to share! :)



Deadline for submissions is February 15th! I will be emailing the new DT member by midnight February 18th!



Design Team Member REQUIREMENTS


As a Hiding in My Craft Room design team member, you must submit one project per week using the specified challenge for that week. You will receive one month's worth of challenges at a time, at least two weeks before the challenge is posted. We have a HIMCR Design Team Private Blog which we are all administrators of! I will have a post on there and your submission for the week's challenge needs to be uploaded to our DT blog by noon on Friday of each week so that I'll have time to get the challenge post ready for Saturday morning at 5AM Central time!


You must have a current blog, posting at least once a week and once on the taem have the current week's Hiding in My Craft Room challenge posted each Saturday along with your creation linking back to the HIMCR challenge post. It is also asked that you leave comments on some of the entries submitted by participants of the HIMCR challenges.



You must display the Hiding in My Craft Room button on your blog. We also have a DT button! You can choose which one you want to use.


We have sponsors that offer us products to use and promote. You will be given images to work with! These might be images that are different from your crafting 'style'. You must be willing to work with sponsors' products. This promotes them and gives us free stuff to play and learn with! It is also expected that the HIMCR sponsor be mentioned within your post especially when using their products. :) Also, I just want to let you know that I already have the entire 2016 year full of sponsors and giveaways each week! Fun! FUN! FUN!


HIMCR Design Team term is for the challenges during the 6 months of March 2016 - August 2016.



We will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day on May 7th with multiple challenges and giveaway! This is so much fun and yes, CRAZY! But FUN! There will be a minimum of 5 challenges, PHEW! You will not be required to make something for each of them! But I think you will want to!


Aaaand, in August is our HIMCR Bloggiversary were we have again a day full of challenges and prizes!


We do have a lot of fun! We have a HIMCR Facebook private group where we get to know each other and can ask questions or just share! We truly become a team and more importantly friends!


Be sure and have your submission turned in on time because the new team needs to be notified via email by Febraury 18th so you will have time to get the challenges and be ready to begin your first HIMCR challenge on March 5th, 2016! Please only apply if you are willing to participate, make new friends, have a lot of fun, and do some crafting!!! YEAH!



If you have any questions please feel free to send them to me using the 'Contact Me' button at the top of the page. Be sure and put in the subject line, DT question. However, you might get a quicker response through the HIMCR Facebook fan page. The link is on the sidebar.




Thank you so much!


I look forward to seeing your submissions!
