A hearty welcome to SanDee&amelie's challenge blog!

Please, note, that this challenge blog is not related to any business and run without any profit by people, who do this for your and their own leisure time fun! Our only reward are your encouraging comments and your playing along and sharing steampunk fun and mixed media techniques. We appreciate every single entry and comment so much! Thank you for taking the time!

If you are new to this place, please, know that we are so glad that you stopped by our little steampunk corner!
Whether you are a dedicated tag or card maker, art journaler or mixed media lover - this might be the right place for you!
For more information about the rules and the little "steampunk/industrial twist" we ask of you, please check the "about" stuff and then simply jump in and create!

If you are new to steampunk and not sure if this is "your thing", maybe take a look at our winners gallery on pinterest (use the linking button on our side bar). You will find that we're mainly a mixed media challenge blog with a little twist towards steampunk, industrial and/or vintage. So why not give it a try?

We are looking forward to seeing your fab projects entered to one of our challenges soon!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Servus and welcome back, dear Steampunk friends!

By now most of you should be in X-mas preparations mood and maybe Steampunk isn't your first choice of project to make right now. So we decided to do a cheer- and joyful "Christmas Wishing Month" instead.

There need no projects to be entered to win this month's prize - as we plan to save all our precious crafting time on preparing X-mas goodness with loads of bling, on shabby vintage delight, on baking cookies, Stollen, Plum Puddings, lebkuchen (= ginger bread) or wrapping up selfmade presents for our loved ones!

Just leave us a comment on this post in which you wish all of us (i.e. the players, the team and yourself) whatever you would like us to get for Christmas and the new year. 

Just one comment per person (otherwise we will have to exclude you from the draw), please! You will have time until the end of December to do your X-mas and/or New Years Wishing with us. 

I will draw one random winner from all the Christmas wishing comments shortly after December 31st and he or she will win a fab $25 voucher to spend at Inspiration Emporium. Yay!


Thank you so much, Joy, for donating such a generous prize!


The team have created some Christmas Steampunk ornaments, cards and tags to express our joy and gratitude towards all who help making SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges the wonderful place it has become during the last two years - which means our true players, our new players, our wonderful sponsors and special guests and for me it also means my fabulous team of course!

Thank you all so much for playing with us so constantly, for sharing your art and your awesome crafting goodies with us, for doing excellent DT work, for inspiring, for enabling and for the comments you leave over here and/or with the DT members' blogs. You fuel our creative energy and make us enjoy this so much! You all never cease to amaze me with the art you create!

Merry Christmas to you, Joyeux Noël à vous.

I hope you have all a wonderful christmas time. 
May the spirit of the season bring you happiness and joy. 

Merry Christmas to you all - hope your wishes for some steampunk will come true.

"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!"

(Charles Dickens)

May this holiday season sparkle and shine. May all your wishes and dreams come true and may you feel this happiness all year round.

A very steampunk Christmas to you all!
Wesołych steampunkowych świąt!


Even though there is no real "challenge" there will be a mid-month post with some special and exciting news! So don't miss it and make sure you check back on 15th December! And of course there are more details on the DT's X-mas projects to be found on the team members personnal blogs. So why not pay them a short visit and get some more inspiration?

Hugs and happy X-mas crafting, baking and preparing!
