Up for the challenge?

Having taken part in the Craftster ugly to awesome challenge recently it's really whet my appetite for a bit of a challenge, and since no-one is asking me, I'm going to just put it out there and if someone wants to partner up for a Make it good challenge then drop me a line or leave a comment.

The Make it good craft challenge is the brainchild of Michele Pacey of Michele made me and Aunt Peaches (sorry could not find this amazing lady's real name) two awesome bloggers that can make some serious cute out of serious ugly.

If you're wondering what to challenge me on, and bear in mind that you'll be taking part too since it's a two part craft showdown (resisting the urge to say Yeehaaaa at the end of that sentence!)I'll have a stab at pretty much anything.

There have been some amazing makeovers so far, check these out, there are two sides, but I'm just showing one to give you an idea of different uses:


Make it good - Gift Wrap
Make it good - Milk Cartons

Aunt Peaches wowed me with her own personal challenge (not part of Make it good but still so cool) to herself to make something pretty out of two ugly items spending no more than $2, she made these amazing needlepoint shoes out of an ugly clown needlepoint picture, yep we've all shuddered as we walk past those in thrift stores wondering who would ever purchase something that ugly!

so here are the rules to the two person, make it good challenge:  and remember it does not have to be clothing, the more obscure the better.


Ok lovely people, don't leave me hanging, I'm going to look like such a billy-no-mates if you do ;)

Yay thanks Michele, will do. By hook or crook I'm going to find myself a partner and if no-one signs up I'll be shaming friends into this so watch out buddies :)
