Jen's goin green, I'm so excited

Ok, so I have a couple of email crochet friends (Betty and Lisa). We've been buddies emailing each other for about 3 years now. Every once in a while, we like to throw challenges out there to have fun with.

Now, I'll be honest here, I've never done very well with these challenges, lol. I start out with good intentions and then cop out with the finish line in site.

So Betty threw out this challenge 2 weeks ago:

"Go green. Come up with crochet items that are made totally of recycled materials. Think outside the box, make things you normally wouldn't make. Your imagination is the only limitation here. Think outside the box."

So, with my regular good intentions, I started thinking about what I could do. That's when I became a bit obsessed, lol. Now I look at something and think "hey, I could so crochet that out of xxxx".

In the next week or 2, I'll be posting my recycled creations. This was a really fun challenge, not sure why this one really got my creative juices going.

Stay tuned.
