Nerd Nest Monthly Project Challenge

At the beginning of every month, we post a challenge for ourselves and you! At the end of the month, in theory, we’ll post our completed projects (Jake and I are both doing one) and will have a link-up for you to share yours! The projects can be interpreted in any way you want. Interpret our challenge to do a project in crafts, photography, creative writing, home decor, technical gadgetry, cooking, or whatever you can come up with.




August Project Challenge




This month month we’re passing the torch, so to speak (hee hee) on the monthly project challenge.

Our friend Allie is hosting the Craft Olympics on her new blog! There are several “events” and we plan on participating on all of them: which leaves absolutely no room for a monthly challenge. But we don’t need to come up with one: she’s got five! (And prizes, including a few good ones from us!)

I’m not sure how many Jake is doing this month, but I know that this time around ELIZA is doing it! Six projects from Eliza! It’s going to be super cute.

We thought we’d give you a few ideas from the archives for the events Allie has listed so far:

Ideas to try for Event 1: Best Use of Paper:

Ideas to try for Event 2: Best Use of Digital:

Ideas to try for Event 3: Best Use of Paint:

Ideas to try for Event 4: Best Use of Recycled Materials:

And if you’re up for a different sort of challenge, you can still enter to win awesome prizes for my Project Life guest post series at the Big Picture Classes Blog until August 2! Find links to all of the challenges here.

What challenge are you going to take on for the Craft Olympics?
