SOS #211: Don't Get Stressed, Get De-Stressed

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. The idea for this week's theme came from a video that my pal Sandy Allnock made for OWH for April Fool's Day:




Yeah, the accent is a little corny, but the video is short, cute, and worth the watch.

So this week we'd like you to make a project that shows us how you relax. Beach? Wine? Smoking a pork butt? Running a marathon? It takes all types.

One disclaimer: I'm pretty certain just making cards is very relaxing and therapeutic for most of us, so "making a card" doesn't count. Nope. Then we'd end up with a link party, and that's not what we're about here. You actually need to include the "what makes me relax" as part of your project.

Here's how the ladies have interpreted this week's challenge:



Now it's YOUR turn. Put on your thinking cap and dig through your stash and come up with something that depicts how you relax. Make something, then come back and link us up below so we can stop by and see what you've made.

The link-up will be open until Monday, July 27, at 11:55 pm EDT. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.
