My last post was about "repurposing" items making the ugly blouse into a Victorian lampshade......and that is what the challenge will be. I would like to see what all of you do with the things you come across in your junkin' time. It's not the kind of challenge where you find an old chair, repaint it, and reupholster it.....that does take talent and vision, but not that much of a creative mind. I want to see you make that pair of chairs into a chaise lounge, or that birdcage into a lamp, or that baby bed into a porch couch....or whatever .....get the jest here?.......it's about "repurposing" not "redoing" SO......take a quick before picture of your basic item and pictures of your finished piece and submit to me via email by midnight January 15th, 2010 to be judged for three top winners. Because I want to make this very special, and very worth YOUR effort, especially during this busy holiday season, I am making the prizes what I think to be desirable...at least I hope so.
The first place prize will be a custom made altered couture sweater sold under my brand of "Heart & Soul". This prize is valued at up to $250.00 in the shoppe........the sweater will be made after the winner is chosen and has submitted their size and preferences, and should arrive within the first two weeks of February......some samples are shown below...some of these were made as inventory, while others were special order, but all will give you an idea as to the style and design of my creations.
The second place winner will receive a $50.00 gift certificate for use in my Etsy or my website at http://www.collectedtreasues.com/
The third place winner will receive a gift certificate valued at $25.00 for use within my shoppes online as well.
I can't wait to see all the fabulous designs and ideas you have locked up inside those little ole' heads of yours.....and to give back to all my wonderful blogger friends that are so supportive, so encouraging, and just so wonderfully nice..........isn't it a great world we have found.....it's like having secret friends, and I love it!
NOW.....get busy with all that creative genius that is flowing rampant with all you wonderful people I have met.....and feel free to pass this on to others....the more the merrier, I always say!
Please don't forget about the monthly giveaway as well......I'm just a "giving machine" these days, but you know......I think it helps your karma to give back when you receive......
