Drab to Fabulous an Upcycling Challenge

I had this idea a few days ago that it would be fun to do an up-cycling challenge and share those results with a blog hop. So if you are a little DIY and crafty crazy like I am and think this might be fun then read on to find out how you can join in!



How it works: 

  • Find a item from a thrift store or garage sale that you think has potential for greatness.
  • The item can cost no more than $10 to purchase. 
  • Mail that item to someone else in the blog hop. You will be assigned a person to mail your item to. 
  • You will receive a thrift store or garage sale find from someone else in the blog hop.
  • Take that thrift store find and upcycle it into something fabulous!
  • Then post about the wonderful transformation on your blog with the blog hop picture and a link to the blog hop starting page.
Are you up for the challenge?

If so just leave your email address and blog address in the comments section on this post (or email me). There will be no more than 15 spots in the hop so make sure you sign up now.

Here are the dates:

  • Deadline to sign up for the blog hop is August 8th.
  • The order of the hop will be determined by August 10th.
  • Deadline to find an item and ship it to the person you're assigned is September 1st.
  • Deadline to complete you project and the date that the blog hope will go live is October 1st

So are you willing to take the challenge and join me in a fun blog hop?
