Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Challenge

Etsy crafter junkshop is hosting a neat little contest called Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Challenge. The idea is really simple, but clever, and encourages recycling, creativity, and making do with what you have. Anyone can register by purchasing a challenge packet (for just the 20 cent cost of the listing fee) by June 1st. On June 2nd, they mail out a packet to each person who is registered. All packets will have identical contents, consisting of an assortment of items saved from the landfill, as well as the rules for the challenge. Photos of completed entries should be posted to the Rhonda’s Recycled Craft Challenge Flickr group by July 15. The winning entry gets a $20 gift certificate to their Etsy shop.
I really like the idea behind this contest and think it would actually be a cool game to set up at a party or to play with a crew of crafter friends. Great idea, Rhonda!


I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
