Welcome - EBTKS First Sketch Challenge


Welcome ... we're so glad you found us. We can't tell you how excited we are to be moving from hosting these challenges on our blogs to hosting them here! We hope that you are too, and that you find inspiration and a little help on thinking outside the box here.

We've also added a challenge to our normal routine. Not only will we have our "Household Item Challenge" on the 30th but we will also have another sketch challenge based on things around the house on the 15th of each month! And today's the 15th, so we have a sketch challenge for you!

When I originally thought of the premise of the challenge ... I thought about how normal things around my house could make great sketches. However, as I started to really look around I realized one of my favorite things in my house had to be the first challenge ... my fireplace mantel. Here it is:


And here's the sketch I made based on it:

How fun, right? I hope you think so, and I hope you'll join in on the fun. We do have a prize for the winner ... a $25 gift card to Two Peas in a Bucket

And for a little inspiration the team has done a great job with the sketch:

Visit their blogs for details.

Here's the details:
Create a card, altered item or scrapbook page, upload a photo of your card to your blog or online gallery & then come back here to post the link to your photo in the Mister Linky below (please link directly to your card). 

You have 10 days to complete your card (November 24 at Midnight Central Time)! We'll pick the winner by November 28. And don't forget about the $25 gift card for the big winner! We'll also pick a few other Domestic Divas!

We would love for you to help us spread the word about Everything But the Kitchen Sink! Please feel free to post the logo on your blog (see our side bar to grab it)! You can also use any of the graphics above on your own blog. Please just remember to save them to your computer first!

And now it's your turn!



Thanks for stopping by... we can't wait to see what you create.
