I always seem to miss the new discussion thread... so here I am!

Hi everyone, good news!  We're extending the post-by date for this challenge to Saturday, July 2nd so you've got a few extra days to get your dumpster dive projects posted.  I've also heard from a few folks that they forgot to take 'before' photos so we're suspending that requirement (but not having them might make your project transformation less dramatic so make sure to include them if you have them!)

I knew you'd love that little jar of fruit!  I also received from Tygermane.  She sent me really lovely and useful things.  First up are buttons, bits/bobs and some silver colored jewelry findings that I immediately added to my stash.

Cute fabrics!  Soft kawaii flannel and a nice sized fleece pirate!

Cute cute fruit and veggie fabrics that I can use in many projects including an I-Spy quilt.

Thank you so much for everything, Tygermane!

Nice fabrics!
3785   / HOME SWEET HOME / Is My Crafty Houseware General or Reconstructed? Where Do I Post It? on: June 29, 2011 04:16:33 PM
Are you confused about whether something you've crafted belongs in the General or Reconstructed category?  Here are some tips to help you figure it out.  If your item started it's life as something completely different with another purpose than what you transformed it into, it's considered Reconstructed.  If you have painted, reupholstered, decoupaged, embellished, decorated or resurfaced an item that still has the same function as before, it's considered General.  It's also considered General if you have constructed something from your craft supplies, like a new lampshade to replace an old one.  

Using this definition, here are some things that would fall into each category:

Building an ottoman from scratch
Reupholstering a chair
Decorating a lamp shade with scrapbook paper
Creatively painting a book case

Tearing the guts out of an ottoman to transform it into a storage bin
Making a tote from a tea towel
Making craft storage from a record holder
Sewing a pillow from a T-shirt
Making a lampshade from gummi bears
Turning a book case into a gerbil habitat

If you want to post a jewelry display or holder, that goes over in the Jewelry and Trinkets board. 

If you're still not sure where your project goes, send a PM to one of your Home Sweet Home moderators (MissingWillow, pixieval, photojenn) for assistance figuring it out.
