So What is Palchemy all About?


The Trashion Team is known for their creative team challenges. One type of challenge that has proved fun and successful had been "Palchemy." This is an activity where interested members sign up and are matched with a partner (that's the "Pal" part.) Then partners send a package of assorted trashion materials to each other. The challenge is to make something from the provided materials (that's the "chemy" of it all.) Last year the team did two Palchemys. The first was open as far as what was created. The second had a theme, Monster Mash, and a mission, supporting HOST (Helping Others Street Team.) The images here are from the Monster Mash Palchemy. Up top is Karma the Kosmic Kitten by buttercupbloom.


Here is the result of the partnership of Kelly from Tresijas and myself.

This is what I sent to Kelly.


Here is what she sent to me.


Here is her Monster- Igoreena.


Here is my monster - Not Too Creepy Bug.

Below are some other monsters created for the Monster Mash.

Palchemy was such fun. The bee eating monster sold out of HOST so in addition to fun, this project gave back to those who needed a hand. Too cool!

Palchemy is a great opportunity to challenge your skills and make something new from something old. Which is what Trashion Team is all about!
