Challenge : DIY

Hello everybody! welcome back to Culture Shock!! Please forgive our absent week.. we're working out a few kinks!!

From now on our challenges will be TWO weeks long! that's right.. you get TWO weeks to work on our challenge.. fit it into other challenges if you like :) It just gives you (and us) a little extra room to play!

We are/have said goodbye to Design Team members TAMMY and AMY and we thank them for their time with us :)

That being said lets move on!

This weeks challenge : DO IT YOURSELF!
are you a handy man or woman? do you like trying new techniques and making your own goodies? do you shy away from store bought and cringe at mass production?

Create your projects based on the pop culture reference "DIY" and link up by Thursday at midnight MST!

From the PUNKS:


I made some paper ornaments for my christmas tree! no need to buy when I can CREATE :)
