It's the start of a new month, and we have a lot to tickle your fancy for the coming weeks here at Hummie's World and The Boomerang Store! We're also changing up the Newsletter a little bit, and hope you will like it! It may be a little shorter but there will be an extra update or two throughout the month.
We have lots of lovely new challenges for you! And there are more to come as well! If you'd like to keep an eye out for new challenges, here's a link to them all in the forum.
