This month's challenge is "geometry class". All things geometric, but especially diamonds, arrows, and patterns are being highlighted this month on Etsy. Bright pops of pink, turquoise and yellow are in, as are more subdued colours like avocado, peach and orange of any hue. Neutrals also have a strong presence for February. Industrial items are also really popular at the moment.

Here's how it works. Check the ning and blog at the start of the month to get the inspiration topic. As you mull over what that particular idea means to you, jot down some notes in the discussion thread or leave a comment on the blog. Take pictures of your process and finished item and post them in the thread or in the Flickr group (with the tag W.E.S.T._dc). We would love to hear the story behind how you arrived at your finished object! I will blog the results of each month's challenge.
A few notes: Create something especially for the challenge. Entries for each month should be finished by the last day of the month. Vintage and supply sellers are welcome to participate, too, with a focus on artful photography and careful choice of item.
Good luck! I hope this inspires you, and I can't wait to see what you'll come up with!
