  • Mindy's Mini Contest: The Craft Store Challenge

    A conversation about contests led to a silly challenge: "I will personally supply a prize of an entire batch of homemade English toffee to the person who posts the best scroll saw project made entirely of items that can be purchased at a craft store like AC Moore, Michael's, or Hobby Lobby. Please include "before" pictures of whatever you choose to scroll. Let the feathers and glitter fly!"

    Here are a few more thoughts:
    - The contest runs now 'til April 1, 2012.
    - Everyone around the world is welcome to enter. I'll ship anywhere.
    - Use materials that come from your local craft store, whatever that is. You don't have to buy things new (if you already own paint, sequins, or whatever, feel free to use it). But the idea is to make a project from craft store stuff, NOT your stash of specialty wood.
    - You don't really have to use feathers and glitter, etc., but you can if you want to. It's a chance to be a little silly.
    - To enter, upload a 'before' photo of your supplies and at least one 'after' photo of your project to this thread. Include a description of what you made, the inspiration, how you went about it, etc. (Doesn't have to be long.)
    - I'm the judge, but I'll be looking for group input--don't be shy (but keep it clean and kind, too). I'm looking for originality, fun, and a little flair.
    - If you don't want toffee, I will substitute a handmade certificate.
    - Enter as many times as you like. If you want to spend the next two months scrolling designs into craft store stools and covering them in decoupage puppy pictures, we want to see it. Winter is long and dull here in Pennsylvania--let's liven it up a little!
    "Take something you love, tell people about it, bring together people who share your love, and help make it better. Ultimately, you'll have more of whatever you love for yourself and for the world." - Julius Schwartz, DC Comics pioneer, 1915-2004

    My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

    Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
