Wednesday Wellspring: creative.hodge.podge

Congratulations to Kelley's Beading for winning this month's Americana team challenge with her Fireworks Earrings! Check out her other lovely creations in her mini parked front and center at the top of the blog! June's theme is Graduation Day, so, team, get to creating!

And this week, the well overflowed with upcycled goodness from creative.hodge.podge! Sarah enjoys working with everyday materials, like markers, glue, discarded books, and paper scraps and transforming them into something better. And that's exactly what she's done with this week's giveaway item: a secret book! For this particular book, Sarah hollowed out the inside then sealed the pages together and painted them gold along their edges. She then added colorful paper pieces to the bottom back cover. These books can be used to store a variety of things, like money, jewelry, an iPod, lip balm, etc.

MANDATORY ENTRY #1: Go to creative.hodge.podge, heart the shop, and then leave a comment here telling me your favorite item.

BONUS ENTRIES (leave a separate comment for each):
1. Become a fan of RNEST on Facebook.
2. Tweet and blog about this giveaway and leave a comment here with the link.

The winner will be chosen using the random number generator on Tuesday, June 8 and will be announced in the next Wednesday Wellspring.
