Welcome to the Monthly Altering Challenge! Open to all!

Have you got an item you want to alter but you’re not quite sure what to do or how to do it?

Or maybe you know what you want to do but would like to see an “Altering Challenge” thread to share your projects, ideas, and how to techniques.

Or just maybe you’re like me and have a huge box that is overflowing with items to alter and you just need to be challenged to get them done.

All I ask is that you post a before pic of the item and an after pic of the item you are altering so we all can see the transformation. Sharing your tips and techniques would be great too!

Just jump on in for some altering fun!! I’m a sneaky ole’ gal so I might sneak in a prize or two!

Everyone is welcome! No limits on how many or how few altered items! Jump on in and join the Altering fun!

Votes are in and it's hands down

I saw that, It's more the insurance company that w-mart uses that is suing. W-marts medical insurance paid her medical bills for the accident and they are wanting to be paid back money she won in the suit against the person that hit her. Insurance companies are doing that a lot these days if you use the medical bills in the first lawsuit, and receive funds for those medical bills you have to pay the insurance company back. It's a shame but the federal law passed back in the late 1990's.

Check out the fine print in your medical insurance, most have a clause that state if you use their insurance to pay for an accident and you receive a settlement due to the accident you will have to pay the insurance company back. A lot of people don't know this until they settle a case and everyone has their hands out for the money.

I want in now that I will have time to actually do something. I can't believe this month has flown by for me and all that I accomplish with all the spring cleaning, decorating my dd's room, and her party...

Here's a "before" pic of a canvas I am "altering." Of course, to me, the word "altering" doesn't seem to apply to a canvas, since it's purpose is to be "altered." To me, and "Altered canvas" is just "art"... but we'll see what it turnes into i guess. I will be doing another for the Altered Canvas Swap, as well

hehehe...I'm almost finished altering mine. I didn't change the color, I'm kinda fond of yellow...just added some pretty "girly" things...one would think I was really into bling here lately.

Just an FYI...

I'll be MIA until Tuesday pm, I have 2 funerals to attend Monday and one Tuesday. Just in case you didn't see my other post, a shooter came into the Hospital I use to work at (for 13 years) and killed a nurse, unit secretary, and a visitor. All three were my friends.

I'm trying really hard to keep my chin up and my eyes dry.
