Going Green part 2 and wiiner anouncement

 Hi all,

 Time for more Minion inspiration for our Going Green Challenge,  so  either use the colour green in your project, or go green by recycling, green eyed envie monster ......well I guess you get the idea, just nothing cutesy green, we love to see your darkside of crafting.

For this post we had some company in the Dungeon, not many people dare go there, so we had a fun time partying with our Gruesome Guest designers, we were even allowed to get out of our chains for a bit.

If you'd like to visit the Dungeon and play with us, all you have to do is make a macabre masterpiece for the Goin Green challenge and link it here, The Minons will vote for the piece they like the most and the 2 Gruesome Twosomes will be allowed to play with us in the Dark Damp Dungeon.

Here the awesome projects our doomed guests made (not sure they made it out the Dungeon alive, it's a dangerous place)


next is is the Minions turn to show what the can do with GREEN

Before you all rush to your craft spaces to start working on your entries, here the winners of the Get in the Naughty Corner challenge from March

The Gruesome Twosomes are:

Congratulations ladies, here is a badge for your blogs, wear it with pride and remember the one who has collected the most of these badges this year will get the grand prize from the Minions.

You are invited to for some fun time in the Dungeon to create an inspirational post for next months challenge, you can contact Mo here for details


Going green!

Are you ready for a new, macabre challenge? The theme for April is Going Green and there are multiple ways to interpret that, as long, of course, as it's also dark and macabre in some way. We don't want anything sweet and cute with spring greenery, bleurgh! You can either use the colour green somewhere in your project (the perfect excuse for zombie skin) OR you can make it about jealousy or envy (the green-eyed monster) OR you can go "green" in the eco-friendly way and up-cycle or re-cycle something. We LOVE to see all the different interpretations that people come up with. The Minions' two favourite creations get to display the March Macabre Masterpiece badge Remember, the person who gets the most badges by the end of the year will receive a glorious prize from the Minions, AND if you win one of the monthly challenges, you get a chance to be a Gruesome Guest Designer for the next challenge.
Show us your most gothic, macabre, twisted creations and revel in the dark side of crafting. 
My fellow Minions have ROCKED this challenge! They're a super-talented bunch and I'm honoured to be able to play in the same dungeon. Several of them have used multiple interpretations of "green" so be sure to check out their blogs for details.Here are your inspiration pieces for this month.

So come and play with us in the dungeon and share your own interpretations of the theme. Remember to keep it dark and gothic, not light and sweet. You have until May 3rd to join us and you can enter up to 3 creepy creations.

The Naughty Corner

It's March, and that means that it's time for a new Monthly Macabre Monday. YAY! Now, here in the dungeon, the Naughty Corner is always full of misbehaving Minions, so we chose that as the theme for this month's challenge. What does it mean in practical terms? You can either make a naughty project, or a project about someone or something who's been misbehaving or create something with corners, or decorate the corners. We LOVE to see all the different interpretations that people come up with. The Minions' two favourite creations get to display the March Macabre Masterpiece badge Remember, the person who gets the most badges by the end of the year will receive a glorious prize from the Minions, AND if you win one of the monthly challenges, you get a chance to be a Gruesome Guest Designer for the next challenge.
Speaking of Gruesome Guest Designers, this month we've been joined by Teresa and Laila this month, as their projects were the ones that most wowed the Minions in the January challenge. Thanks very much to both of you for the fabulous projects you've given to inspire us with this challenge.

and on the inside

Menace Of The Monstrous Mark

So now we've shown you ours, won't you show us yours? You have until April 5th to play along and can enter up to 3 marvellously macabre makes.

It's a Love/hate thing and the Gruesome twosomes

Here some more LOVE/HATE  inspiration from the Minions, they were allowed off their chains just long enough to create you some creepy projects.  You all know we Minions are allergic to cute, pink and fluffy so please don't enter traditional Valentines stuff in the Love/Hate challenge, just make it bloody, scary, gothic, creepy, twisted and dark. Trust me you don't want to risk being haunted by the Minions for entering traditional "nice"Valentine projects.......let's keep things creepy OK?

This was what the Minions came up with this time....

Creepy Glowbugg decided it was time to change this little Cupid into something amazingly devlish 

 this is much better if you ask me ...... 

Temptress of Terror Teri created an awesome digital piece,......or should I say Dish......

think this picture made you all hungry...it did make the Minions drool.

Maniacal Mother of Mayhem Mo altered a plastic frame and a broken heart of glass into this

Spreader of Sickness Susan is pretending to be nice on he inside, but the Minions aren't convinced.

You can enter your project here.

After being punished for not choosing the winners last time, we all learned our lesson (we are still healing from the whiplashes, so how can we forget), so perfectly on time, we are proud to announce our Gruesome Twosome and their Macabre Masterpieces for the "What's new pussycat "challenge of  January (some more important info you don't want to miss below the winners, so hang in there and keep on reading)

Congrats Laila aka Koneko with the wonderful creepy card below
and Teresa with her awesome Pandora's  Box
Both are true Macabre Masterpieces.

Now the cool part of being a Gruesome Twosome (actually there are 2 cool parts)  first is you both get to wear the  pretty badge below on your blog to brag about being a winner in the Dungeon by creating a Macabre Masterpiece .....

AND......you guys are invited to be a Guest Minion to make an inspirational project for next month challenge at Haunted Design House (Now how cool is that huh?).

For information contact Mo here

Remember we have monthly challenges now and every month the Minions will choose 2 Macabre Masterpieces and their creator will be Gruesome Twosomes and deserve a GDT spot in the Dark Cold Dungeon. Who has earned the most Macabre Masterpiece badges this year will get a prize donated by each Minion......so keep your scary stuff coming...........


February - It's a love/hate thing!

Yup, it's February again, and you know what that means, right? The entire rest of the world goes ga-ga over love and sweetness and pink and cherubs. Frankly, we in the Dungeon are too twisted and dark to put up with that malarkey, so instead our February challenge is
It's A Love/Hate Thing
This means that you can make it about love or hate, OR use something you love, or something you hate. We're always open to interpretation, but PLEASE nothing sweet and insipid or we'll have to burn it. Seriously. No traditionally "nice" Valentine cards, ok? Make it gothic, make it creepy, make it beautifully twisted and dark and you'll receive so much Minion love that you'll need to get checked out for communicable diseases. Remember, we're now monthly and you can enter up to three macabre creations each month.
The Minions have been busy creating pieces for your pleasure and inspiration, so without further ado, here they are. First up,


So come and join the fun. You can make it about love in the first two weeks, when the world is full of hope and possibilities, and turn to hate at the end of the month, once you're sick to death of all the Valentine's crap that will be everywhere. Or the other way round, lol, we really don't mind how your muse strikes you, as long as it's not sweet and pretty and nausea-inducing.
