Once upon a time…well, a year ago, I fired up a private facebook group for junkers called Your Funky Junk.

I could see a growing need for an environment for all to equally share their junk creations, especially for non bloggers. Bloggers have a platform, but non bloggers don’t.

But… I hesitated.

Screen shot 2013-08-13 at 9.46.10 PMI mean, what if no one came? Ugh… Fear of failure reared it’s ugly head yet again. And I listened.

But slowly over time, folks were finding the private board. I just didn’t let them in. Because I honestly didn’t know what to do.

I continued to recieve attempts of show and tells on Facebook, but they were hard for others to spot. They were ‘hidden’ from the main thread. I just didn’t find that a very user friendly way to share, especially for those that didn’t have big, pretty blogs.

So a good year later, (that would be yesterday) I did something about it.

I opened up the group!

As of now? In one day the group has sprung to 350+. Obviously the need was there all along!

Your Funky Junk!

This one’s for anyone. If you have a computer, and a desire to get creative with junk, I encourage you to check it out!

You don’t have to be a pro photographer. You don’t have to be a pro anything. Just come as you are. If you have a will to create but don’t know how, I guarantee you, once you see these junk projects scroll in front of you, you’ll be jumping out of your seat, anxious to give it a try yourself!

The group requires approval to get in, but no worries, just ask and we’ll getcha in!

I’m soooo excited I get to see EVERYONE’S creations now rather than you just seeing mine. No more excuses gang… just do it!Join Your Funky Junk, a facebook group for junkers! Where anyone can share their junk! via Funky Junk Interiors

  1. Hi Donna,
    I would love to join this fb group! But it’s not coming up on my fb page. I must be doing something wrong. Can you help? Thanks, Melanie

  2. I read “junk challenges” and then I scrolled and looked at people’s junk. I have to join just so the “like” button works and I can tell folks how cool their stuff is. Oh and in case there is a junk challenge!

  3. donna way to be not afraid! i knew you would be alright with this! i love your blog and i copycat lots of your ideas in my garden and yard. hubby a little difficult about letting anymore junk into the house. lol

  4. Can you belong to a group as a page? I use my blog FB page more than my personal. I am currently under the group as myself but would like to be under my page instead. Do you know if possible?

  5. Thank you so very much for responding!! I was so hoping as that’s where I spend most of my time and feel like I don’t see that page very often! 🙁
