Left of Center Creative Challenges needs you! That's right, we are holding a DT Call and are looking to take on several new team members so here's what you need to know and what you need to do.

*The LOC Crew are in two teams and you will be required to produce a project every other week and comment on entries to our challenges
*Our DT organisation and chat facilities are through our (private) Facebook Group and you will be required to join us there where you will find all the information you need and images from our sponsors.
*We also have a public Facebook group where you can promote your projects and interact with our members. A Monthly Facebook Contest is in it's early stages and should this continue you can request a sponsor image and create a project for this on top of your blog challenge commitment.
*An active Blog is a plus - we would expect you to showcase your project and a blog is the ideal place to do this. However, should you wish to use a Facebook page or other Social Media to promote the sponsor/challenge etc we may be able to work with that instead and this should not stop you applying.
*The initial term is 6 months from November till April and we would expect you to meet this requirement if you apply (dont worry about holidays!)

In return, you will receive many new images to work with from our sponsors - these range from Rick St Dennis, Ike's Art, Dilly Beans, Delicious Doodles, The East Wind and others. We have several NEW sponsors lined up for 2015 who I am sure you would be excited to work with. Our current sponsors can be found on the left tool bar on the blog here.

Our team is diverse and friendly. We have paper crafters, digital artists, mixed media and altered artists - and those who dabble in other areas too. Do not worry about being alternative or dark or 'LOC' - samples can be LOC or indeed pretty, cute, pink and fluffy as long as they follow the theme. Yes, many of our team enjoy the darker side of crafting, but we are looking for diversity and to encourage others to join in our challenges too. So, don't let the LOC aspect stop you from applying either!

To apply - create a short post answering these quick questions - linky tool is below.
1 - What brought you to the LOC blog and have you entered any LOC challenges in the past?
2 - What is your favourite/comfortable crafting style - your 'go to' style?
3 - Please share 2 or 3 photos (or more if you like!) of your recent favourite work
4 - A few sentences about why you would like to join our LOC Crew.
5 - if you have any questions for me or the team - we will post our answer as comments to your blog!

If you are applying without a blog - please email the above information to myself at - and also include how you would share your projects without a blog, eg your facebook page or other social media outlet including links.

Thank you and best wishes


  1. Hi, I am Nanette, a relative newbie to all of this world! However, I am having the time of my life! I am a 54 year old widow who has crafted in many areas for most of my adult life. Ceramics, wood painting, polymer clay, scrapbooking ( just now throwing myself into cards and scrapbooking!), multimedia (my favorite), and learning digital merging with my old school style! I found Smeared and Smudged and joined with probably 10 rubber stamps to my name and unaware of digital stamps! But I joined the 31 Days of Halloween and am now a member of DominoArt and will be posting on day 25 over there. and am really enjoying making myself reach out to new levels and out of my comfort zone. As I mentioned my favorite crafting method is mixed media due to the ceramic and wood painting background I suppose. I found the DT call at Teresa's blog on day 22 of the hop for S&S and I have never participated in any challenges on LOC due to just finding you awesome artisits! Long winded...sorry! Hope that answers the questions. I will make it clear that I am not a pro nor on any other design teams; I do aspire to be on a DT! Thanks, Nanette

    1. Nanette, thank you so much for this info, I will be in touch with you asap after the DT call closes next weekend. Best of luck with the 31 DOH! Loving your work, have been hopping and blogging it too, now we're in the home stretch! :) Mo xxx

  2. Well, we have dipped our toes in the water and submitted a post. However it goes, we love paying along anyway :)


Thanks for stopping by!
