“Hello, Donna speaking…”
“Hi Donna! This is Cheryl from Earth Day Canada’s Upcycling Challenge…“
Poor Cheryl didn’t have to say another word. For this is where I got POSITIVELY GIDDY.
You see, in late summer I entered this Canadian challenge / contest where you submitted something you made from nothing. (I have a few of those…)
And I knew the winner would be notified on December 7th.
And then the phone rang on December 7th.
Cheryl really didn’t get a word in edgewise after I knew it was her. I don’t even remember what I rambled on about but it had something to do with my most heartfelt dire absolute NEED for what I won.
Oh my word… I lost my cordless drill and driver kit about a year ago after major renovations did it in. I have a cordless drill, but not one with a chuck like this one. Welcome Panasonic! Can’t wait to add you to my little collection. 🙂
No worries, when it comes, I’ll show you why I wanted it and what it’s all about. This sweet thing comes with two lithium batteries to boot! (only the best) And it’s black… ooooo… pretty!
So what did I submit for the win?
My pallet sofa won “The Most Inventive” category!
Some Canada wide publicity will be part of this win as well.
Last year’s project got published in a magazine!

I’m so proud of my little girl. 🙂
I’d like to thank (
the academy) Cheryl from Earth Day Canada,
and friend Barbara, for it’s on Barbara’s beautiful blog that I saw the contest! Just goes to the prove how powerful social media really is and how vital it was I followed Hodge Podge. 🙂
