This week, I joined up with a fun online group called Iron Craft. It is a group of people committed to working on a new craft together each week. They began in January; but, I just discovered the blog this week. Every Thursday, they select some sort of theme or craft to be completed by the following Wednesday. The projects don't seem to be anything too large or complicated and they use all different crafting methods. You aren't required to do every project either, so I don't feel too stressed about joining in.
The challenge we received today is to make a handmade Valentine for someone special. It can be any sort of handmade item: a paper craft, fabric craft or even a baked good. I was really excited by this challenge because I had already planned a fun Valentine activity with the kids this week that will fit in perfectly.
We all post our projects the following Wednesday. There are quite a few people participating. It will be fun to see all the great ideas and also to try out some new types of crafts. If you are feeling inspired, it's not too late to join!
