Hi all!
I was reading about TheMistressT's ice marbles, and I had an idea for a Craft Challenge.
What if we challenged people to post their crafts they made in adversity? You know, life gives you lemons, make lemonade?
Like the ice marbles - what to do when you're moving to Montana and will be in sub-zero temps for a long time? Look up ice crafts!
What do you do when you have wrist surgery? Decorate your cast in a crafty way! (Like blupaisan did!)
What if an unidentified chunk of metal falls off of your car? Make a lawn ornament!

See where I'm going with this?

I imagine this wouldn't be something that was crafted specifically for the challenge, but something done when needed. What do you think?

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

I like this idea - maybe it would be a good craftalong, with occasional prizes? That would mean things could be done when needed, instead of having the time constraint of a challenge. I'm already thinking I should have saved my worn out tires from last spring and spray painted them for outdoor planters!
