« Part 5: Castle Clean-Up: And the winners are... Part 6 of LJ Challenges series Part 7: 1 Board: 1 Project »


It’s all a balancing act – whether is it a ball on a seal’s nose, a man on a tightrope, the magic balancing belt, or … well, what can you come up with?

Create a project that has at least one component that balances.

How The Challenge Works
1. Create a project with some component that balances.
2. Post it as a new project.
3. Tag the project as: challenge-14
4. Have fun.

Although there is no “real” deadline, as this is an open challenge, projects for this initial challenge are to be posted by October 31st, 2012.
(We look forward to seeing many balancing projects, whether they are posted this month, next year, or ten years from now!)

The Prize
  • Fun
  • Friendly Competition


Other Challenges
Other challenges have been posted in the past. We’d love to see your entries for any or all of the challenges! Please remember to tag them as indicated for each challenge. LINK

I am unco-ordinated as it is… balancing life…(hmmm), work, woodworking and other hobbies, music motorcycling… let alone balancing my cheque book… sigh…

I’m with Nighthawk, I have a hard time balancing my checkbook, too. I also have a hard time balancing my attendance at work, hiding from the boss at work, goofing off at work so I don’t get caught, and actually doing my job at work once in a while. This balancing act never ends.
