TFATU May 2023 REMINDER post Announcement

   We at TFATU are hoping your dreams and wishes are coming true! 

It's close to the midway point of the May 2023 competition ending on the 31st so DT Granmargaret and I are bringing some more magical inspiration to tantalize your creative mojo! 

Come and join our 'always anything fantasy goes' theme competition. Bragging rights are possible. Starting in 2023, the winner will be offered an invite to be a Guest Designer in the following month's competition. And then there are a minimum of Top 3. If there are 41+ entries, there will be a Top 5 which gives a couple of more crafters a chance at bragging rights.
