Upcycling Challenge

Recently Earth Day Canada launched its Upcycling Challenge,
which I have been asked to participate 

If you have been been reading my blog for some time you would know that I like to upcycle! Nothing like taking something cast-off and turning it into something fabulous! Not only does it give you a one-of-a-kind piece for you home you are saving the environment as well. One less thing in the landfill.


the challenge is also open to you! 

The three categories are:

Make something new from something old and you could win one of these:

Panasonic Cordless Tools

Perfect for the DIYer! 

This contest closes on November 27, 2011 and is open to Canadian residents.
