Look What The Cat Dragged In
Yes, it’s true. I’m actually here, and adding a post! I know, I know, it’s been more than a year….but there’s no WordPress rule that I have to post regularly. Anyway…the reason for this post is just so that I can submit a project over at The Altered Alice. I found the site several months ago via another site…I’m thinking that the other site was ScrapScene.
The Altered Alice has monthly challenges, and that’s what this post is all about. Their sponsor Stampotique Originals is giving away a gift certificate to one lucky winner. I’m hoping to be that winner. Check out their site…they have a great assortment of rubber stamps and supplies. I like them so much, I’ve already ordered three of their stamps. Can’t wait for the postman to deliver them. Winning a gift certificate would be like icing on the cake.
This month’s challenge was stated as follows:
Sunday, January 30, 2011CHAPTER 1 Challenge – Week 1: Changes in form and dress forms!
Posted by Lynne Phelps
“Alice crouched down among the trees as well as she could, for her neck kept getting entangled among the branches, and every now and then she had to stop and untwist it. After a while she remembered that she still held the pieces of mushroom in her hands, and she set to work very carefully, nibbling first at one and then at the other, and growing sometimes taller and sometimes shorter, until she had succeeded in bringing herself down to her usual height.
It was so long since she had been anything near the right size, that it felt quite strange at first; but she got used to it in a few minutes, and began talking to herself, as usual. `Come, there’s half my plan done now! How puzzling all these changes are! I’m never sure what I’m going to be, from one minute to another!” ~– Chapter 5, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Well, just like Alice we have been through a change in location and changed form from weekly to monthly, but the challenge chapters remain familiar despite all these puzzling changes!
I don’t know about you, but the Adventures of Alice in Wonderland is not an easy read…it’s way out there…haha. I’m not familiar with the Victorian Age, or the wordplay, satire and parody. All of the innuendo is lost on me. Having said that, my project submission is a result of my own imagination.
So…there you have it! Wish me luck.
