New Year, New Challenges

Well, with the New Year, we here at LMAJ wanted to bring something new to you all.  So we are retiring Strut Your Stuff, and replacing it with something new.
 
Since our main focus here is handmade, we thought, what better way to encourage you then to introduce you to new techniques.
 
Please excuse us while we work out some details, like a name for the new challenge, and creating pages links and the flickr group for it. 
 
In the meantime, I'd like to share with you how it works.
 
Each challenge period will be 8 weeks long.  The first Monday we will teach you a new technique via a video or tutorial. 
 
We will challenge you to not only try this technique, but to use it in a creative way.  The following Mondays will be full of information, examples of where you can take the technique, and resources.
 
You can upload the pieces  you create to the flickr group, with a link to your blog url.  On the Monday of the 6th week, we will have a blog hop.  We ask that you link to us from your blog on that day so everyone can hop along.
 
The last two weeks of the challenge period we will highlight your work, have guest posts about the technique and other fun reviews and surprises.
 
We are very excited about the changes.  It's our deepest desire to continually bring you information to further you on your handmade journey.
 
We hope you will join us. Look for the first tutorial and complete information next Monday, the 14th.
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Wow! This is exciting. Although I don't have a blog, I am assuming I can participate through Flickr.
Y'all rock!
