The Stone Soup Challenge is a grassroots movement founded by artist Laura Bray. The goal of the challenge is for artists and crafters to help one another by promising to use a portion of their monthly profits to invest in a fellow artist's shop. To join us in helping artists everywhere and to read more about the challenge, please go to our Facebook page.

Remember! If we all contribute a little to the pot of Stone Soup, we will all feast.

Unfortunately, it appears that the Mr. Linky widget isn't going to be available to us for shop listings on this post anymore. I have been trying to decide what to do the past couple days about it. I care for my three year old daughter full time and run my business, katydid designs and I really can't take the time to keep this blog up to date without having things like widgets available to me. So I've decided that, rather than shutting down the challenge completely, we need to move over to The Stone Soup Challenge Facebook page in order to continue on our journey.

Please go the page today and add your shop link. You can also post Stone Soup Challenge shop specials and blog drawings on the page. Although a bit of change, I think this solution will allow everyone to get more exposure in the end. As of today, I will not be updating this blog. I hope you all understand the need for this change and that you will continue to work on the challenge. I'll see you over on Facebook.
