Congrats on the 25K, Julie!! Okay here's one. Not sure if you have tried this yet and not too sure if it is doable. Since summer is in view...what about a flower pot or planter of somekind? You would most likely need to seal it so that it does not get wet, but hey...you are the 'Queen'. ;0)

Congrats on 25K!!! I just love seeing your creative projects. I would like to see some kind of metal altered item. Thanks for a chance at your mystery celebration candy. I just know it will be creative and FUN!

What about making yourself a tray to carry items outside when eating in the back yard?

Congrats on your hits!!

Congrats on the hits. How about using more chipboard?

Congratulations on your 25000 hits, Julie! You are very creative and have a lot of good ideas. I have just started altering (did an altoid tin) and would like to see more fun projects that are small to put into the mail!. Thanks for the chance to win.

I've been trying to figure out things to alter that are from recyclables, so anything you do there would be great!

Way to go Julie! You have probably already done this but I am a Newbie to your blog but I would like to see Tea containers altered. I have been saving the round tetley ones thinking they would be good to store little things in but i haven't done anything with them yet. I'd love to see what you come up with. thanks crystal

Hi Julie! Wow! That's a lot of visitors to your site...Congratulations, Girl! I am totally in awe of gals who can do a blog site, as I am afraid of trying one for myself! As for a challenge, how about altering a clock or some kitchen canisters?
Keep up your GREAT work!

Hi Julie,
I recently finished some Hot Chocolate tins that are relatively large - you should try altering those. Also as a recent challenge on another list, we were to take tissue boxes and alter them to make something. I cut up a bunch of Breast Cancer tissue boxes and made an accordion book of inspiration for those dealing with the horrible disease.

Mandiannie said...

Congrats on the hits.
As for an idea of what to alter..how about a lotion bottle...with lotion it it of course...customize it for giving. How's that?

pianojan said...

I'm new to your blog, but it's very inspirational. Have you ever tried altering photo frames such as the clear acrylic ones? I guess StazOn would work for any stamping.

Yay, Julie, congrats on 25,000 hits! How about altering a picnic table that you could either modge podge (or seal it somehow) or put a clear tablecloth over to see the wonderful artwork underneath?

Bunny B said...

Congrats on the blog hits. I have a bunch of baby food jars, small and large. What can you do with those? I keep coming up blank.

How about trying altered clipboards Julie! I started one for dh months ago and stopped due
to lack of ideas! Lori

Wow, 25K. What a milestone. And
what a blog. You deserve the title of Queen. How about showing us some ideas using window cards.
I am really interested in trying some of those.

Dear Julie love your swiss dot card. I just joined the Cuttlebug club and saw your name.
Hope to be exchanging cards with you soon.
