A New Direction for The Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog

Our challenge blog has had a great run over the past ten years, first as Frilly and  Funkie celebrating all sorts of vintage-inspired paper crafts and more recently as The Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog.  We have noticed a decline in participation in our challenges over the past year and feel it's time to move past challenges into purely inspiration style posts.  We are thankful for all the visitors, challenge players and artists who have contributed to the success and longevity of our blog. It's amazing that we have passed our 10th anniversary of the blog's beginning.

Our new approach is to provide inspiration for using products sold in our on-line store The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Tomorrow is the beginning of a new product spotlight cycle.  Our talented team of designers will be given a product or group of products to provide inspiration for using the products.  The designers will each post on separate days throughout the two week cycle.  The posting days will be Wednesday, Friday and Monday.  We will no longer have scheduled guest designers but may occasionally have guests pop in with inspiration.

We will be offering a $25 gift certificate to shop at The Funkie Junkie Boutique each product spotlight cycle.  To enter, you must create a project using the spotlighted products, post it on your social media and tag #thefunkiejunkie. At the close of each spotlight cycle, we will randomly select a winner from the individuals who tag us.  

We hope all our loyal readers will enjoy our new approach.  We would love to hear your comments!
