Crafters

One-Word Prompt

Here are some one-word prompts for this month. Just because you use a word once, doesn’t mean you can’t come up with a different creation for that same word. Let your imagination run free:

  • Heal
  • Arrangement
  • Outside
  • Onion
  • Mushroom
  • Flour
  • Sweet

If you’d like to share your creations with us, join us on Facebook at Where Baking & Crafting Meet.

Make Me a Craft

Make Me a Craft is the One-Word Prompt with a little more structure. This challenge is more specific and timed.

  • Make me a TAG using ALL scraps.
    • You have 30 minutes
    • Scraps can be boxes, leftover paper, junk mail, already opened bags of gems, pearls, etc. As long as it has already been opened, or cut, it can be used.

If you’d like to share your creation with us, join us on Facebook at Where Baking & Crafting Meet.

Clubs to Join

The Cookie Club

Decorated Cookies

For those that want to try their hand at decorating cookies, this club is for you. For more information on the cookie club, check out the blog post Bakers & Crafters: The Cookie Club. All the information is there. You can sign up with the button at the bottom of the page as well.

The first Cookie Club Box will be themed 12 Days of Christmas. A few years ago, someone ordered this theme of cookies, not only was I excited, but I was scared. This was outside of my norm.

With this kit, I’ll be showing you ways to get your designs on the cookie, whether it’s my design or your own. The kit will become available on November 20th and shipped on November 22nd. If you signed up, you don’t have to purchase anything except for add-on items. Those links will be provided if any are available.

Even if you sign up during December, you can still receive the December box. The December box will no longer be available on December 21st.
