October Design Challenge - The War of the Worlds!

What would you do if you scored an awesome vintage record of the story of The War of the Worlds -- one that comes with a book/magazine with lots of incredible images, as well as a pretty amazing album cover? Frame it? Sell it on eBay? Put it on a shelf with your other vintage treasures?

Not if you are Christine of PinupPixie! What did she decide to do with this awesome find? Offer it up to the ETC team for our October Design Challenge!!!

Christine scanned the pages of the book/magazine and posted them to one of our team sites, and members were challenged to create something using these images or their own interpretation of The War of the Worlds.

In Christine's generosity, she also made the record and album cover available to ETC members to create the prizes for this Challenge. Beth of ByBethStudio, Cindylee of FattyCornersQuilts, and Cathie of SweetWolf were the first three to correctly respond with the original radio air date of The War of the Worlds (Oct 30, 1938) and were thus selected to create the prizes for this Challenge.


Entries for The War of the Worlds Design Challenge include:









War of the Worlds Mixed Media Canvas Book
Created by ByBethStudio
NOTE: This item is available as one of the prizes for this Challenge!









War of the Worlds Mixed Media Quilt
Created by FattyCornersQuilts
NOTE: This item is available as one of the prizes for this Challenge!

















War of the Worlds Record Bowl
Created by SweetWolf
NOTE: This item is available as one of the prizes for this Challenge!





For more information on each of the above items, as well as more pictures, be sure to click on the title of each entry to transfer to its Etsy or Flickr listing.


Two addtional prizes (for the 4th and 5th place finishers) have been provided by Christine of PinupPixie -- she was unable to get them ready by the deadline to be included in the Challenge poll, as she was "caring for two cootiefied kids" this past weekend. Here are Christine's prize offerings:






Thanks, again, to everyone who has participated, and special Thanks to all our voters!


NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, the voting deadline has been extended through midnight, Thursday, Oct 30th.

Welcome & Thanks Bunches!!!

Welcome to our new blog, and thanks so much for your patience as we transferred information from our old blog to this one. There are likely a few more "tweaks" that need to be made, but this is now our "official" blog!!!

This has been a busy time for ETC!

We have a new team site, which includes:
1. A list of our team members - this list currently includes names, locations, shop descriptions, and Etsy minis and will eventually include information about other locations (both on the web and in the real world) where members can be found
2. A calendar of team events
3. Our membership map
4. A resources section with links to several guides & articles, as well as downloadable items for our team
5. Groups for each of our mini teams, providing them with their own announcement page, comments wall, and forums!
6. And of course, there is a forum and chat room feature, as well as a link to this blog!

I have heard from many of our members that this new site is much easier to navigate, and they love the fact that it links all of our other sites together.

Stay tuned for more updates on what all we've been up to these past few months!

In appreciation for all that she does to support our team and our team members, this week's Featured Member is Connie of ReFabulous.

Connie lives in Melissa, TX (North Texas), and enjoys taking something old and giving it new life as a useful, beautiful, one-of-a-kind treasure. She blends recycled materials with new to create unique handmade wallets, pincushions, pouches, and more! Her latest creations are eco-friendly dryer sachets, made with reclaimed fabrics and filled with lavender buds from PoPkO (not an ETC member, but an awesome Etsian!).

Here's a sampling of Connie's creations:


Thank you, Connie, for all that you do!
