When I first started checking out other folks' blogs I would notice challenges and give-aways. I thought that was cool and often had ideas where I could have played along if only I had a blog...
...now I have a blog so what is to stop me? How about a dead ceiling fan light? Yeah, that put a kink into things a bit but I still pulled through. Yes, I have other sources of light to use, including a mighty battery operated (with cord option) Ott light, but I couldn't sit and play at my desk while there was man on a ladder hovering above. Now he is gone and I have a new ceiling fan/light source, so here we go!
I joined the A Muse Studio Challenge featuring buttons. A Muse Studio calls their bags of buttons "Not Your Grandma's Bag of Buttons." That gives me a laugh, as my maternal grandmother would put a|s to shame with her bottles, bags, and random stashes of buttons everywhere in her house, but it is still a great name. The challenge was to use at least one button on your project.
