Time to Link Up for the Winter Crafts and Decor Challenge

This week has been all about winter crafts and decor! It has also been a perfect week with all parts of the country getting record low temps. Here in Arizona we got down to 10 degrees. That is so crazy for us! But we survived and it justified my winter decor. That is a bonus!

Always remember to have courage fellow crafters! You can create and anything and come share it right here, because that is the mission of the CSI Prject to Create.Share.Inspire.

Alright, onto the party.

Let’s recap the week before we party!

First, after a day of our server being down, we had this beautiful winter mantle from Designed by Dawn Nicole.

DIY Winter Mantel



Then, we had this winter art from me, your CSI Girl!


When you link up your Winter Craft and Decor, you can expect a visit from Lisa from Moore Minutes.


Read all about her blog, here. . Be sure to visit her blog and say hi!

Lisa will be  looking at all of your projects and picking her overall favorite and 10 that make the CSI cut. We can’t wait to see your favorite project of 2012! You might even take home the coveted winners button.

Happy Linking, my crafty friends!!!

So, let’s get on with the party!!!

Please remember that to be eligible to win this week’s challenge and giveaway, you must provide a link back to the challenge in your entry post. It’s easy–we have a button ready for you to insert into your post HERE. For additional challenge rules, please read below.

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules. This challenge begins at 10 pm(MST) Wednesday, January 16th, and ends at noon (MST) Friday, January 18th .

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host

6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 2 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit and link back to your blog. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like! You also give us permission to add your name to our newsletter list. If you wish to unsubscribe you may do so at any time.

Be sure to listen to the first CSI Project Podcast called CSI Confidential, here. You can listen every week as we interview our guest judges, sponsors and experts on the challenges.

The CSI Project have a new Facebook page. Go here to “like” us.

Also, go here to learn how you can be involved in Giraffe Grins, a CSI Project charity.

If you haven’t registered for the Forum yet, go here.

So, Ready, steady….GO!

    Thanks for hosting!

  3. Thanks so much for hosting! I am following you now via google reader. Thanks for the invitation to join in. I did add my winter centerpiece. I hope you have a great week. I used to live in AZ (it is where I was born and raised). My parent’s swimming pool had ice for the first time ever this week. So unusual your weather this week!
    Take care,
