Warm greetings to all!
Another round of applause for all those who joined in on last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge- the Spell-ing Bee
Crafting spells is a lot of work and many of you put your creativity to the test to write your very first spell- well done! This week will be a bit of a breather after last week’s challenge.
The theme for this week’s challenge is something a little different…
To celebrate the Fifteenth Weekly Challenge, something special is happening…
Was there a busy week where you missed a challenge? Did an interesting theme happen before you joined the forums? Maybe there was a topic you were hesitant to try but now feel ready for.
Well- now is your chance!
This week is Catch-Up Week where all previously closed challenges will be re-opened for a short time!
Are you ready? It’s catch-up time!
Here’s how to participate:
STEP 1: Choose a Previous Challenge
From earth-friendly magick, dreaming, gathering blessings, and more- there are 14 previous challenges to choose from.
For details about each challenge including rules, guidelines and inspiration click the link and visit that challenge page.
The previous challenges and the titles they granted are listed below:
- Trying Something New - Experimenter
- Celestial Exploration - Cosmic Witch
- The Thrifty Witch - Thrifty Witch
- Earth-Friendly Witchcraft - Earth Witch
- Dream Magick - Oneiric Witch
- Kitchen Witchery - Kitchen Witch

If you are feeling particularly adventurous this week, you may decide to do up to TWO challenges to collect those titles. This limit is just to save your challenge moderator from a potential ocean of badge-giving () - but no worries! There may very well be more opportunities to do old challenges again in the future

The hope with challenges is to help you further diversify and strengthen your abilities and to bring together the Spells8 forum family to inspire and support one another in fun ways
The lessons of the past are invaluable treasures for the you of the present- here is a second chance and window of opportunity that will soon close!
