Folksy is running a fab competition with Sue Ryder Care. The aim of Upcycle Christmas is to take second hand / charity stuff and make it into something ‘new’ and desirable. All items will be auctioned with the proceeds going to the Sue Ryder charity.

There are five different categories and entries will be judged by Wayne Hemingway, Louise Roe and India Knight, who all know what they're talking about when it comes to this sort of thing.

Winners get to showcase their portfolio in the Sue Ryder Care Camden store for one month from the middle of Jan to the middle of Feb in a specially constructed Folksy set. There has been a great response to the competition already and it would be great to get as many entries as possible. If you're interested, full details are on the Folksy blog, so get your making caps on.

I love the idea of that! it's so easy to get carried away with Christmas shopping.
