I have some really fun news and some really exciting news. You want to hear the exciting news first, huh? Here goes…

Shortly after my move from Michigan to Florida, I was offered a partnership with Tampa Upcycle, a sister company to The Upcycle Exchange in St. Louis, MO. And I accepted! The official announcement was posted here if you want to check it out.

This may explain my whereabouts over the last couple of months; it’s been kind of a crazy whirlwind around here.

To welcome me :ahem: Morgan and our awesome Upcycle fans are hazing me with an Upcycle Initiation Challenge. You can get in on it too!

Here are the super easy rules:

Head over to the Tampa Upcycle facebook page, and Like the photo of the object that you want me to upcycle
The photo with the most Likes will be the one that I will upcycle.
I will have to use at least 80% of the material, and will have 30 days to complete the project.

Here are the upcycling choices:

An old beaded light kit

Country fabric

Old trophy placque

All three choices are pretty terrible, but regardless, I am SO ready for this challenge!
