DT Call over at Fab'n'Funky....

Morning all just popped on to let you all know we have a DT call over at Fab'n'Funky..

Unfortunately Sharon has had to leave us as she is finding things very hard at the moment with her illness. We wish Sharon all the very best and the DT will miss her dreadfully.

This means we are now recruiting 2 new members to the DT and welcome applications from everyone regardless of whether or not you have had previous DT experience. Here is some information regarding the DT position but we promise you will not be working in a pressurised environment as we believe that crafting is FUN!

What do I need to do?
Please pop over to Fab'n'Funky and leave a comment, with a link to your blog and a current email address.

How long is the DT call running for?
The DT call will run from Wednesday 15th February until Tuesday 21st February 2012 ,9pm(GMT)

When will the winners be announced?

The winners will be announced on Wednesday 29th February 2012 and will begin participating in the challenges from Wednesday 7th March 2012


When do the challenges run?
Our challenges run from Wednesday morning to the following Tuesday, finishing at approximately 10pm

What will be required of you?
You will need to commit to participate in the weekly challenges using the theme set and any sponsor images provided. Your completed project will need to be uploaded to the Challenge Blog by Tuesday evening ready for the new challenge published on the Wednesday morning. You will also be asked to comment on the challenge entries (which we run on a rota system). Please not that the Fab'n'Funky DT strongly believe that everyone who enters our challenges should receive recognition from the DT for participating as we have a strong and loyal following. Yo will also "host" a challenge one every 10 weeks, where upon you choose the theme for that week and also the Top 3.

Do I need experience?
In a word . . . " NO " ! We just want people who are enthusiastic, love to craft and are up for a challenge! If you are on other DT's that doesn't exclude you either but please do consider your work load when entering our DT CALL

Is there any financial reward?
Again in a simple word . . . " NO " ! We are very lucky however as many of our sponsors do supply us with their images &/or products in the weeks they sponsor

How are the themes set?
The themes are set by the DT member who is hosting the challenge. We all know which are our weeks up to the end of 2012, so yo will have lots of time to thin of a theme. Sponsorship will have been already sorted for you

Anything else?
The DT is run as its own mini democracy and everything is openly discussed between us all. Any decisions affecting the challenge blog are agreed and acted upon as a team, so obviously we are looking for team players to join us. So if you are interested, please do have "a go" as you never know.
 
Good luck everyone and as always, many, many, many thanks for your continued support, enthusiasm and participation in our weekly challenges.

...Enjoy your day and catch up with you later...

Wendy xxx
