Spring has sprung (kind of) and it is time to embrace your crafty self and all things natural! Celebrate our planet and enter the CraftStylish Crafty by Nature Challenge. This challenge invites you to make anything for your home (inside or out) yourself, or someone else that is handmade wonderful, and superbly natural, and by that we mean made with natural or recycled materials. For this challenge every project must creatively incorporate one of the four elements of nature (earth, air, fire, water). Some elemental ideas might include but are not limited to:

Earth: Clay, rocks, shells, earth-tones, mud, sand, moss, dirt, trees, bark, vegetables, flowers, foliage, fungus, pinecones or any 'sprung-from the ground' colors, tones or elements.

Air: Light, floaty, dried-out, materials, anything made using forced air, or spun. Ethereal colors, feathers, or designs that incorporate suspension, flight, pockets of air, clouds or birds,

Fire: Heat, ashes, flames, that might be used within a process as with a kiln or incorporated into the design as leaping hot-rod flames. Hot colors like red, orange, fushia or violet. Design elements that are jagged, burnt out, or crushed with heat.

Water: Any process that requires the use of water like dyeing, steaming, shrinking, felting. The element of water may be realized within the design through waves, ripples, or drips of pearls. Watery colors like blue (also for air) turquoise, or teal green. Fabrics or materials that shimmer, run, flow or look wet.

Fire-up your imagination, take to the winds, place your feet on the ground and dive in! Let your crafty nature make our world a better place.
