'Evening folks. I have had this idea spinning about in my head for a party. If you have been with us for a while, you will know that we used to have a sketch challenge blog and since it ended I've been thinking about how to spice up our events. The blog party on the 17th was fun for a while, but sometimes I found myself wanting to use my new stamps and finding that they were at odds with the theme of the upcoming party so I am ending the parties on the 17th and beginning what I hope becomes a fun new tradition at WMS.

I want to begin a pajama party (or pyjama if you are in UK) - I'd like to have one every month! I thought it would be fun to have some challenges of different sorts and perhaps relate a few of these to our releases so that folks can show off their new goodies, gain inspiration and generally just enjoy using our stamps a little more.

I hope to run a few separate themes for each pajama party so that folks have more options to play along. I hope to also include challenges for older sets - it's always great to have fresh inspiration for sets I already have. The challenges will vary month to month, they might be theme based, colour inspirations or technique challenges.

It's going to be a pajama party because I am moving the time slot to midnight (my time)! Challenges will have varying timescales, but we hope to accommodate folks wishing to link up by leaving the links open over night and into the next morning. I'm a night owl and so the new slot should suit me better to play along! I will be here in my PJs ready to chat and see what everyone has been up to, I hope you can join me.We'll be hosting all the challenges from this blog.
We really hope to see you playing along with our Pajama party. We will be announcing each party's challenges directly after releases in future so that folks have plenty of time to get their projects ready, but our first party is next week! We know that lots of you have your goodies from out 1st of July release and are itching to play - so do join in!
We'll be opening a chat thread on the Waltzingmouse Forum during the party on the 29th July and we would love to chat with you then.
OOh and the really BIG news is that during this first Pajama party, the DT ladies and myself will be keeping our eyes open for that special somebody who really seems to be on a WMS roll - we will be inviting one lucky participant to join us for a future release as a guest DT member

Going forward, each Pajama party will have several challenges - details will be posted for upcoming pajama parties two days after each release. This will give you time to get ready. On the night of the Pajama party, there will also be an additional sketch challenge that will open on the night and remain open for one week.

The challenge details for the first ever WMS Pajama part can be found at the end of this post.
