CHALLENGE #2 - This Week's Challenge: The Theme is Go Green!
I drove my DH crazy this last week having him save ANY piece of mail that had a blank space big enough to write on. Here's what we collected in a week:
Another re-cycled project is.....using product packaging (cookie box and cardboard casing from a couple of DVD's and the cardboard insert from a toy my 9 year old DD just bought) and an old notebook cover (14 year old DD likes to purge on a daily basis. I don't know who her real mother is) ...
....here it is on a pink card. Still as stunning as the one Rosemary made. hehehehe
And of course I made an ATC out of packaging and magazine images.
Hi everyone! Rosemary here and it is tough following Jana - she's got a lot of innovative projects that really lived up to the idea of reduce, reuse, recycle. I'm going to try and see if my projects fit the bill as well.
A little accent pillow
A little doorknob decor!
and here's a little flower brooch (kind of Mary-Engelbreit-ish)
(This is just darling. Love it Rosemary.)

Flight of Fancy Challenge Entries
I adore all of the layers here. And of course the colors speak to me. Did mention that I love the colors in this piece?!?!?!?!
Rosemary again - I'm a big fan of Creative Solace and love to see what Heather has created next
Karen at A Little Bit of That approached our challenge from a different perspective with her Spring Album:
I love seeing all of her personal signs and favorites of spring.
Go over to her blog. I have only posted a couple of the pages.
She has posted the rest of the album. It is amazing.
R again - I know, Karen is amazing - she had that great album put together so quickly and I love it!
You really should check out both of these ladies' blogs. They are both very talented.
(I second that emotion)
We here at OPUS GLUEI are very honored to be in the presence of such creative spirits.
And as a surprise, we have a little token gift for each of you. So please contact us via email with your mailing address and we'll pop a little something over to you.

Welcome to a new Challenge Blog-CHALLENGE #1
Although our name MIGHT make you think we are only and all about the crafts, that's not the case really. We're going to be shaking things up OFTEN, so stop by and see what's happenin', hot stuff.
It can be anything - an ATC, an inchie, twinchie, a mini, a moo, a scrapbook page, tag, bookmark, card, you get the picture.
To find a pattern for birds, I simply Googled for a couple and voila! Instant gratification. This bird pattern is available here: http://nelliedurand.blogspot.com/2008/04/bird-tutorial.html
Now, here's Jana!
Hello - Jana here. I started out by making some easy projects for this challenge because I want to make sure that everyone knows that we are here to enjoy the creative process AND that it doesn't have to be intricate or time consuming. My first creation is an ATC. I am taking this challenge as an opportunity to create a deck of Opus cards. A Tribute in the works, so to speak.
I had these little square shadow box frames from the $ store that were just screaming for some color. So I obliged. I am very craft-accomodating.
(Rosemary here again - oh my gosh, are these not cute as can be?- Jana was very very productive in preparation for our grand opening and I love everything she made)
All we ask for you to do is post a link to your blog entry (try to link to your specific post) for this challenge in the comments section. We're going to let this run for a week - to give you at least one weekend to work on something. Have fun, we can't wait to see what you create!
