✂️ What is this challenge?
It’s a daily photo challenge to help you get inspired by the craft supplies you have! The challenge is either 7 or 31 days long depending on when it’s being held.
✂️ When does it start?
Let's celebrate Craft Month (March) and get crafty with our stash! The next Craftic challenge starts on Sunday, March 1, 2020 and will run for 31 days.
✂️ How do I participate?
Based on each day’s prompt, take a photo of either a craft supply OR creative project that you think matches the day’s prompt. :)
Make sure to tag your photo #CrafticChallenge in your posts on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and tag @crafticland as well.
✂️ What do the prompts mean?
It’s totally up to you what the prompt means to you. They’re a little vague on purpose!
If you’re having trouble with them, I’ve given some more details about the prompts below.
1. Favorite material
What's your favorite craft supply?
2. Work in progress
Show us a project you’ve been working on!
Do you have a big stash of yarn, embroidery thread, pens?
4. Fav color
This one’s a bit obvious.
Show off your fiber stash or fiber project.
Do you have gold markers, glitter washi tape, sequins?
7. New supplies
What’s the last thing you acquired (not necessarily purchased. They can be swapped, gifted, found, etc)
8. Old favorites
What’s something you’ve had for a while? It could be of sentimental value or just something you’ve had for years.
While going through your craft supplies, have you rediscovered something you’d forgotten you had?
This could be any kind of fabric - think cottons, silks but also felt, leather, foam.
Show us your favorite pens, markers, notebooks, notepads, etc!
12. Least fav color
Which color do you least gravitate towards? Maybe you can challenge yourself to use it in your next project?
Any and all scraps of paper, fabric, yarn, get creative.
Which item would you like to upcycle and repurpose into something new?
Show us your paper stash or how you’ve used it!
Polka dots, stripes, herringbone, you get the idea.
17. Biggest stash
It can either be a stash that’s large in size or in quantity - or both! A few skeins of yarn are probably a lot larger than several bags of beads.
Some stashes are too large for one single photo - you can photograph some of it or try to place it all in one place! (and maybe think about how to use up this stash!)
Something neon, colorful, you get the idea.
Closeups of textured fabrics, knit/crochet/macrame projects, crumpled paper, etc.
What’re your favorite / most interesting / rarest buttons in your stash? Or just a pile of random buttons will do as well.
21. Favorite project
What’s something you’ve made that you’re really proud off?
Is there a project or material that you no longer know what to do with? How can you restart the project or repurpose the material for something else?
23. Craft space
Show us where you craft! It can be your dining table, a corner desk, or a full craft room - we want to see. :)
This ties in with Day 23 ;) Show us how messy your workspace gets mid-project. Or make a mess today and photograph it!
Tubes, pans, globs of paint or show off your latest painting!
26. Favorite tool
What’s your ride or die DIY supply? (that question is from the Craft Hangout podcast!)
How do you organize your supplies and tools? You can show off a specific part of your craft space, how you organize one type of craft supply, etc.
28. Project planning
Do you plan your craft projects? If yes, show us your planner and/or notes system! If not, what’s your process like?
29. Never used
What’s a craft supply or tool that you haven’t used yet? Is it “too nice” to be used? Challenge yourself and try it out in a project today!
Bead piles or projects, show us what you’ve got!
31. In my queue
What’s next in your to-make list? This could be the supplies you’ll be using, a pattern printout, work-in-progress, etc.

1st Craftic challenge - Nov 2017
The first Craftic challenge ran for 7 days in November 2017. I had so much fun seeing how people were looking at their stash in new ways and rediscovering old craft supplies. I knew I would be running the challenge again! You can view the challenge post here.
Nov 13th - favorite medium
What’s your go to craft material? When starting a new project, what’s the material that you reach for first? This could be anything like yarn, paper, washi tape, paint, etc.
Nov 14th - shiny
What’s in your craft stash that is sparkly, shiny, shimmery? Some ideas are: metallic markers, gold foil paper, or sequins.
Nov 15th - never used
Is there something you bought at the craft store, put it away on a shelf, and then forgot to use it? Or something you’ve been afraid of using that’s “too pretty” (we all have these!). Extra challenge today: use that too-pretty-something! :)
Nov 16th - texture
This could really be anything that has texture like chunky yarns, ornate buttons, or crinkly paper. Bonus points if you take a craft material and turn it into something with texture!
Nov 17th - least favorite color
Your favorite color would be too easy, right? :) Find something in your craft collection that’s a color you don’t really like so it’s sitting there unused, most likely. How can you use it up? Can you pair it with your favorite color and use it in a project so it doesn’t go to waste?
Nov 18th - pattern
A design pattern as in polka dots, stripes, herringbone, gingham, you get the idea.
Nov 19th - biggest stash
Which stash is your pride and joy? Or is it a stash that’s overflowing and you don’t know what to do with it all?
Do you have a closet full of yarn? Or a big box of buttons? Show off your amazing collection! If you can, use a big chunk of it in a new project and start using what you’ve hoarded. I mean, collected. (no judgement zone - we all have our own favorite supplies to collect :D )
