When the Las Vegas Crafters' Guild first started craft challenges back in 2006, they were held about every other month. It was a fun thing! These challenges forced us think outside the box. They required us to utilize different unfamiliar or unusual items such as Easter grass or craft supplies that we had never worked with before.At our monthly meeting, members were given the name of the item to be used in their creation. The completed piece was submitted at the next month’s meeting for judging. The winning artist received a gift card from Michael’s Craft Store for $20.00. Just what we need right? More craft supplies!
Fast forward to 2017. Debbie Williams, Vice President suggested that we start craft challenges again. For this challenge, scrapbook paper, feathers, beads, jewelry charms, acorns, bullet casings, ribbon, cigar boxes, empty toilet paper rolls and everything but the kitchen sink were assembled, put into plain brown paper bags and sealed.
