Chapter 34: A Mad Tea-Party



`And ever since that,' the Hatter went on in a mournful tone, `he won't do a thing I ask! It's always six o'clock now.'
A bright idea came into Alice's head. `Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?' she asked.
`Yes, that's it,' said the Hatter with a sigh: `it's always tea-time, and we've no time to wash the things between whiles.'
`Then you keep moving round, I suppose?' said Alice.
`Exactly so,' said the Hatter: `as the things get used up.'
`But what happens when you come to the beginning again?' Alice ventured to ask.
~Chapter 7, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland


Awesome Wonderland greetings to all! First of all, let's congratulate our WINNER from last week's text challenge. Congrats to Laurel! Send a note to the Mad Hatter, Jessica, for details on how to claim your Greeting Farm single!

Can you believe summer is fairly over? It's time to change from iced teas over to hot teas. I love autumn and all the wonderful warm drinks, wonderful sweaters and gorgeous colors it brings. In Wonderland, it was perpetually tea time and I could live that life for a long, long time!

Your challenge this week is to explore things that could make up your tea-time activity. Use tea bag folding in the construction of your project. This is a great resource: Tea Bag Folding. Anything relating to time would pair perfectly with this challenge, but isn't a requirement! Show us your fab folding abilities, doing it Alice-style!

Here's my project for this week:


This is a custom art journal cover that I made. A friend of mine is opening a brand new teaching studio in Oklahoma. So this will be given to him to auction to help with expenses. 


Here's a close up of the tulip tea folding that I used as flowers to carry gorgeous beads for the Greeting Farm Chibi girl. I just LOVE this image! There are 6 tea folded bead flowers. Can you find them all? I put Flower Soft around the flower bases to 'anchor' them.


And again, from a different angle. I love using distress inks coupled with strategic tearings to mimic a wall in a very old house with multiple layers of wallpaper showing. It just makes me happy!

You have until midnight Central time on Friday, October 15th to complete your project and link it up to the Oh Alice Challenge blog. You don't want to miss out on your chance of wining a 6x6 pad of Basic Grey papers! The clock is ticking - don't be Late for TEA!

Ta for now! ~ky
