I didn’t think I was going to be able to get this challenge done. That is, until my flight got cancelled. Play day in my craft room instead of working!! The challenge for the Frilly & Funkie Challenge was in honor of Earth Day. It’s Not Easy Being Green challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I decided that this challenge would be to use some random things in my craft room: an empty Hershey’s chocolate bar box that for some reason had not made it to the recycle bin despite it being empty since January; scrap pieces that were about ready to go into the recycle because there were way too many; and the “leftovers” in a mason jar on my craft room table. The little mason jar gets the things that are broken, messed up, or is the only-one-left trinket. After several months or so, the mason jar gets dumped and it was time. And, jackpot! My beloved changed his watch band last night so I pulled it out of the trash can in his office. And figured I would try to work with time.

I hope this inspires you to keep some of those well-loved but messed up tidbits and use them for a project some day!
