    I'd love to participate. Could you give us a hint as to the themes in case we need to get any materials. I'm not able to run to the store at any time.

    I so love moo houses (and Inchie houses). Fun!

    Glad to have you aboard, Rosecake!

    Definite challenges or themes will be:

    Women (International Women's Day is March 8)
    Time (daylight savings time ends in the U.S. on March 12; very wide interpretation allowed, clocks, whatever)
    St. Patrick's Day
    Pantone Color of the Year = Greenery
    Monopoly (March 19 is World Monopoly Day)
    Spring / Equinox
    Earth / Earth Day


    And of course, you're encouraged to come up with ideas that are entirely your own using materials you already have on hand. No need to buy anything new unless you want to!

    I heard today that March 19 is World Monopoly Day. Since I was planning to make some moo houses using Monopoly cards (see sample below), I'm going to make this one of our themes. The report also said that they're doing away with the thimble as one of the game pieces. I guess because so few young people sew or do hand-stitching anymore, a thimble is too old-fashioned.

    Moo-house I made using a Monopoly property card, from the 2013 Mini house-athon.

    They should replace the thimble with a cell phone.

    What a terrific idea! I love the idea of using Monopoly cards for houses....maybe a stop at the thrift store for a used game may be worth a try. And that's a great card, Miss Iowa.
    It's another beautiful day!

    The Washington Post says, "The Scottie dog, car, battleship, hat, boot, wheelbarrow and cat will remain in the game, Fortune says, with the remaining selection to be announced March 19. Among the possibilities: hashtag, penguin, rubber duck, TV, watch and an emoji of Mr. Monopoly."

    A Hashtag???
