Who’s up for a challenge?

Welcome to 2015! At Close To My Heart, we have some exciting things in the works for the upcoming year. Just as I do at the beginning of every year, I’ve set some new goals for myself and for our company. One goal I have for all of us is to find joy in creativity. As with any ongoing resolution, we all need a little extra motivation from time to time. So today I’m happy to announce Jeanette’s Creative Challenge! You’re invited to play along with me this year as we present weekly challenges to get your creative juices flowing.

Here’s how it’s going to go:

  1. Tune in to our Facebook and Instagram pages each Monday to learn what Jeanette’s Creative Challenge will be. Follow Close To My Heart on Facebook and Instagram so you can get the details pronto! When I announce the challenge, you’ll see a sample project as your inspiration and it will then be up to you to create and share your own creations.
  1. You have until the following Sunday at midnight to post a photo of your own interpretation of the challenge to either our Facebook page or your own Instagram feed. Be sure to use the hashtag #jrlcreativechallenge when you post. You can search this hashtag at any time to see what others have posted!
  1. What’s in it for you? This series is designed to inspire creative time and provide a place for unity and idea sharing each week. The challenge will give you a reason to get into your supplies on a regular basis for the sole purpose of having fun through crafting!
  1. Oh, and did I mention there will be prizes? We’ll choose one random winner each week to receive a prize for participating. I’ll announce the previous week’s winners every Monday on Facebook and Instagram, just before the new challenge announcement.
  1. Spread the word about this opportunity to anyone and everyone you know who loves creating, winning prizes, and a good challenge! The more people that get involved, the more fun it will be.

Sounds like a blast, right? Get those scissors sharpened for Monday, January 12, when I’ll post our first Weekly Creative Challenge!

Happy New Year!

  1. Oh how I cannot wait for the challenges to begin! One of my goals for the year is to participate in more craft challenges & what better than from our leader Jeanette!! Love this!
    And can I just say, when you wear blue Jeanette your eyes just really sparkle!

  2. First of all, I want to say that I love the picture of you, Jeanette! As beautiful as ever!! Second, the Creative Challenge sounds like fun! Looking forward to the first challenge!

    • No, you can use any products you wish! Unless we specifically call out a certain CTMH product, feel free to use whatever it takes to express your vision.

  4. Sounds like fun. I’d have a better chance to play along if there was a weekend given during the challenge time frame. Working full-time through the week doesn’t leave a lot of creative time, so I do most of my creating on the weekend. Just a thought. Look forward to seeing everyone’s art though.
