June Challenge

Back again!

As always on the 1st of the month, I'm here with my DT piece for Rhedd's Creative Spirit, where anything altered art goes.

As most of you will know by now, I volunteer at a charity shop (where I spend a small fortune bringing home stuff I want to alter one day, lol), and of course, it being a charity, donations are always encouraged!
We had a silver piggybank on the counter until recently, but someone bought it (after we emptied the donations out of it!), so we needed a new moneybox for donations.

So I made this:


The papers are from LOTV. I used them to decorate a small chest of drawers before, and decided I liked the look so much, I'd decorate this in a similar style.


And for anyone who's interested, this link takes you to the charity's website (which is somewhat out of date, but will give you an idea of what we do, lol). It's such a fantastic cause, and I feel privileged to be a part of helping these kids.

So, now you've seen mine, I strongly suggest you go take a peek at the rest of the teamies' work over on the blog, I promise it will be worth your while!

Now, I must be off (as I'm due in the shop!), but I will be catching up with you all soon.

Have a fantastic day!

This money box is utterly stunning and I hope you get lots of donations in it! That's if someone doesn't try to buy this as well as it is so lovely!

How very practical and simple is that Sammy! But definitely an eye catcher and hope it attracts a lot of donations. Hugs.

What a fantastic idea and so beautifully done too! Looks amazing, Sammy! You should make these to sell in the shop too! They’d go like hotcakes! Sure beats a run-of-the-mill piggy bank! Hugs! xxx
