December challenge theme "Warm and Fuzzy"

Shine, winner of our October Challenge, has chosen our December challenge theme "Warm and Fuzzy".

A lot of us are about to go into winter, the holidays, or both. Warm and fuzzy can be anything from our favorite pets and critters to warm fur and Santa's red coat. Or it can be something that gives you that happy and tingly feeling.  It is a busy time of year for a lot of us, but I hope the team will be inspired and encouraged by the broadness of this theme and find time to participate!!! Happy beading!!

Team members may start their challenge entry on October 21 and list it by Midnight December 5th.
