Upcyclers Monthly CREATIVITY Challenge:
Starting May 2012, we will host a creative challenge to inspire upcycling ideas among the team!
Each month a selected shop (Judge) will choose a common upcycled medium, like a tin can, an old magazine, etc), and participants respond with photographed ideas of what they upcycled that medium into!
How to Enter:
On this discussion thread please leave a link of your upcycled entry.
Entries must come with a photo of your idea. A description or your thoughts are welcome, but your idea and shop will be share by the PHOTO LINK that you submit as an entry.
To post the photo a link onto Etsy’s discussion boards, you can do this a number of ways:
Upload the photo to a social media network... twitter, facebook, flickr, etc. Then paste the link into your entry comment.
You can also upload your photo entry on your own blog or website, and then paste the link into your entry comment on the thread.
If you need help with creating a photo link, please contact myself, or the monthly Creative Challenge Judge.
Monthly Challenges will be posted the first day of each month, and final entries should be submitted by the 24th of each month!
ALL ENTRIES will be included in the creativity challenge’s monthly blog post (published the first week of the month) and on our team’s social networks. This is a great way to share the upcycled love and promote your shop.
Challenge Checklist for Participants:
1. use the monthly medium to create something new
2. photograph the created idea
2. post a link to your photo on the monthly thread for an entry BY the 24th of each month
3. ALL submitted entries will be posted to our pinterest boards, and other in SM: pinterest.com/upcyclers/
4. ALL entry links will be featured in our monthly blog post, with some highlighted entry photos included as well.

Well done to those who've managed to make something!
Wish I had time to be involved, and get creative. Think I've definitely got an old walkman, and various other electrical things, just waiting to be upcycled, but am just too busy at mo, to potter around with ideas!
Good luck everyone, great idea for a challenge :-)

YAYI have two entries! :)))
This first is a boombox modeled after my favorite autobot transformer Blaster, the who transformers into a sound system (he doesn't transform, but he's made from recycled scrap metal to children's wooden blocks to upcycled speakers). My model is meant to serve as your mp3 boombox, plugging straight into your player or computer) These are made from rechargeable speakers that will last almost forever :)
The second is a nightlight, lamp, that USED to be a radio, boombox--it was not working (i bought from a thrift place--tricked me...) and we made it into a nightlight that plugs in and will run indefinitely!!! :)))
