Make sure to check out the new link button to the left - THE HANDMADE CHALLENGE! April has a really awesome idea here so make sure to read all about it. The theme will change from month to month, and while October is almost over next month will see another challenge.
April says - "Use any media you desire. Each person may submit one item. This is a fun opportunity to connect with people all over the world—tell your friends and your fellow makers so they can join in too."
