Introducing The Sims 4 Arts and Crafts Challenge
#TS4ArtsAndCrafts Challenge
~~!~~
Most of the challenges I like to play include starting with nothing and finding a way to exist while working towards a goal. My #RagsToRiches game play style is demonstrated in challenges created and shared by myself and others like #RosebudChallenge #RosebudSolitaire or #EcoExistence to mention a few. Collecting and harvesting to make a fortune is the usual goal but sometimes those can become a real grind. With that in mind let me suggest a new theme with crafting as the primary focus. Collecting will still be allowed of course but this time the bulk of the funds will be gained by other means.

A while back I had an idea for a mini-challenge called Art Is Everywhere #ArtIsEverywhere
The focus of that challenge was for your Sim to create art by making paintings and taking photos. I am incorporating some of the ideas into this challenge.
Spoiler:
 
There are some pretty standard rule I share in the majority of my challenges.
Please see those in the spoiler below.

"No phone, no lights, no motor car, Not a single luxury, Like Robinson Crusoe, It's primitive as can be." Theme from Gilligan's Island (Television series)
Spoiler:
 
Not every player likes to start with no money and no safe place for their Sim to stay. Seasons makes this especially difficult. For that reason I will leave that part up to you with only one exception.
No money cheats to add funds. You can keep the starting funds to buy a few essentials.
Still interested? Good .... keep reading .... (and thank you).
Specific to this challenge:
The perfect Sim for this challenge is entirely up to you.
Ideally start with a single Sim as a young adult or for more of a challenge a teenager.
Teenagers will need to get good grades so homework and school projects (parenthood) will be a must.
Looks, style, traits and aspiration are your choice.
Aliens and vampires are allowed. Custom content is your choice.
~
Please click on the spoiler under "How to start a gameplay challenge" to see read more about the lot and starting funds.
If you do not want to start with a totally empty lot there is an alternative.
Keep the starting funds and move into any lot you can afford.
Be sure to allow for any items you will need for crafting.

How to start a gameplay challenge.
Basic rules for starting any of my challenges.
Please see specific challenge for specific rules.

My Sim Wyatt was born to Carrie Meholme after she completed the Runaway Teen Challenge
Wyatt had been a top-notch toddler and completed all except the Whiz Kid aspiration.
He only had a few basic level skills on his teen birthday and I gave him a fresh start on another lot so he would not have any unfair advantages

Wyatt Meholme is at the end of his days. He made a lot of progress selling paintings and eventually writing book. In his adult years he signed on as a freelance writer and advanced to level two of that career (free laptop). I wanted him to have an heir (or heirs) but to continue to live alone not distracted from him goal. Actually I had added several aliens for friends and to encourage alien abduction. I also added Sajou Capuchin by @Buttonsginger  Smile
Wyatt and Sajou have two children - Farrah and Preston
Wyatt and Samus (Alien) have two children - Aden and Tatum
Preston C is the youngest of this group and was still a toddler when the abduction happened *doh*
Wyatt became a dad by abduction just 3 days before his elder birthday.
I was sincerely afraid Wyatt would die of old age before Julien (true alien) would be old enough to be on his own.
So I did some finagling and combined Sajou and Samous and their children into one household. Then I moved Wyatt and Julien in with them

PHEW!
Now to decide who will be heir.....

I did a kind of foobar by aging Julien before Tatum and Preston who were both still toddlers at the time. So after combining all three family units I aged up (birthday cake) the toddlers. Then waited another 2 days and gave Julien youth potion to get the ages in correct birth order.
These are Wyatt's children in correct birth order along with the days left until their teen birthday.
