Weekly Challenge

Every week a friend and I come up with a challenge for us to complete within that week. We have been doing this for a year or so.  We take turns presenting the challenges. We try to use recyclable items.  This year we are focusing on gifts for our family to give for birthdays,  Christmas,  etc.  We also do card challenges every month for the upcoming holiday.
These challenges keep me inspired and on my toes!  I am always trying to learn new techniques and new things.
It's always fun to see what the other comes up with. Everyone has different ideas and different techniques for doing things. That's what makes the art our own.

Last weeks challenge was to use food boxes. I don't throw away anything I think I may use down the crafting road- so I had plenty of boxes! My family has accused me of being a hoarder. I say so be it-as long as I have the items I need for the next challenge!! Lol



I covered each of the boxes with paper, added wooden "knobs" and labeled them.  I'm using this for my greeting card storage.


       I've been needing one of these for a long time.


 My friend, LaDenna, the Crafty Diva, presented the current challenge.  We have to use a box comparable to the one in the pic below and make a mini album to go with it.  It's on!  lol 



I will be back with the results next week!
