The monthly challenge for September was Back to Childhood by Athena of LalalitaBodyCo. This is what she had to say about the theme: "September is traditionally back to school time. Remember the craft projects from your childhood, like macaroni noodle art, or tracing your hand to make paper turkeys, or getting your hands all ooey-gooey with finger paint? This month, challenge yourself to "elevate" a kind of art or craft from your childhood into "high art". It doesn't have to be something for your Etsy shop; this is all just for fun."
