I hope everyone is having a great and inspirational Sunday! I usually get up, get everyone ready for church (with my husband's help), go to church and then come home and spend the rest of day relaxing with the family. We usually only have one big meal on Sundays and then a family tradition of movie night with popcorn! Or pretzels for the girls who are a bit crazy and don't like popcorn! I might have to disown them! ;)

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 Blog! Your submission for the week's challenge needs to be uploaded to our DT blog by MIDNIGHT on Thursday of each week.

You must keep up with your blog and have the current week's Hiding in My Craft Room challenge posted each Saturday linking it back to the challenge post. It is also asked that you leave comments on some of the entries submitted by participants of the HIMCR challenges.

You must also display the Hiding in My Craft Room button on your blog.
Sometimes we will have sponsors that sell digital products. You might be given images or kits to work with! These might be items 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. :)

Design Team term is for the challenges during the 6 months of October 2013 - March 2014.

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