I hereby suggest a craft challenge for Spring (which is -hopefully- coming soon to the Northern Hemisphere).
Perfect for Spring would be a craft challenge that stipulates that you must focus on gathering craft supplies from nature.  So many crafts can be made from twigs, bark, leaves, dried grass and flowers, stones, shells, etc, etc.  This would be a wonderful challenge to inspire people to get outside for spring and look for free craft materials in the natural spaces around them.  Hourrah!

I post all my crafty stuff on Facebook.  I'd LOVE if you'd like my page!

This is really a great idea. It will be pleasant for spring. During spring many people look for the natural spaces for them in and around.

Not only would I enjoy making something of my own but I'd LOVE to see all the ideas other people come up with!

Amen to that!

I believe there has already been a similar craft challenge but I wouldn't mind if there was another! Spring is wonderful when it finally happens (especially to those of us who have extreme seasons!)
