LESSology #14: Birds of a feather...


The LESSology fun has started again...we're up to Challenge #14:



We want to see a bird and/or a bird cage!

Remember to always include an upcycled product in your project!

This month our sponsor is:



The prize is a $40 Gift Certificate!

Do you remember my earlier sneak peek?


Well, I've been hoarding a Clementine wood crate:


This is how I altered it:


Here's a close up of the panel:


I know that I've seen these around bloggie land and have been wanting to give it a try:

I found these sugar shakers at my local Goodwill:


One is glass, the other one plastic but you can't tell which is which:)

It cracks me up since my Costco is now selling restaurant equipment which, yup, includes sugar shakers for under $2 but it is the thrill of the find to spot them when I go thrift stores and garage sales.

I can't wait to see how the Birds of a feather challenge inspires YOU!

Have you heard?


 
Three cool chicks is a creative collaboration between three bloggy pals me, Julie Tucker-Wolek and Yvonne Yam. We love the online crafting community since that's how we "met"!  We are always looking for ways to give back to our creative friends as a "thank you" for your support. What better way than with our creative powers combined in an online workshop?


Will you join us as we explore 5 of the hottest trends this year?


Details:
1. Each day (from 14 -18 May) you will receive a PDF via email with 3 never-been-seen projects - one layout, one card and one altered item.

2. You will have access to a private blog where we will explore each trend and share tips and tricks used in our projects.

3. We will have a Flickr group for you to share your inspired projects.
Now how fun is that?!  Seriously fun:)
