Have you ever come across a challenge that you just could not NOT do?! I did a few days ago, and it has had me spending too much time in my DH's garage. Thank goodness that he is not home or I would hear a lot of complaining. His garage to him is like my scrap room is to me....you don't go in there without consent!! If I ever feel bad about spending too much money on scrappy supplies I just go open the garage door and look in - that cures it. Seriously, we collect paper, he collects wreches and ratchets. Anywho, I found so much fun stuff in there to play with. Which leads me to the challenge I am sneaking around in the garage for :)
Blue Moon Scrapbooking is currently holding a 'Hardware' challenge over on their DT blog.
Here are the details:
You live in a rural County, in fact so rural the closest scrapbooking store is many miles away and you get the chance to shop only once in a while. You shop online normally, at… joy, oh joy...Blue Moon Scrapbooking!! On a whimsy, your neighbor says “I’m going to town, want a lift?” Well, you hop in and the neighbor says “I’ll drop you off and pick you up in a bit”. Fabulous – except you have been dropped off at the hardware store with only cardboard shapes, nuts and bolts, wire and mesh… available. Time to push the creativity button as you work with the supplies from the hardware store.
OMGoodness!!! How fun! Hardware I used include: Black mesh, wire, washers in various sizes, black sandpaper, cardboard heart, paint, and calking (which was used to create the textured bg paper). Now I need to go clean up his garage a bit because the man will be home for R&R on Monday for 2 whole weeks!!! I am over the moon excited. We haven't seen him in over 8 months so this is much needed family time :) I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by...now go hug those loved ones!!!!
