Wow I got the pic up so I'm going to share another project. I just love love junking as my family and friends calls it. I call it therapy! LOL My family has been threatening to call hoarders so I finally took the plunge and opened an Etsy store. I need to sell a few of my small (truthfully HUGE) stash or my husband says I have to stop! (Ain't going to happen!) So anyway here is - an old candle shelf from around the late 70's. It had an ugly heart cut out of it (remember all that wood stuff like that?) and I added a wood piece I found at Menard's to cover that old heart up. Ugly it was with that cut out heart. Then I sanded, painted, sanded again and stained it threw in a grubby candle I made and some pip berries and now it's just perfect even if it is just my opinion! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :-)
Ok so being new at this I'm going to try and post my first picture of some of my creativity. Wish me luck! If it works you will see some eggs I dipped in blackened bees wax. I'm in the mood for Spring. Tired of all this snow and cold!! brrr...
Wow I can't believe I'm taking the plunge and doing a blog. It has been something I have wanted to do for a few years to share my creativity, obsessions and my family but never had the courage. Well after opening an Etsy store (another thing on my bucket list!) I thought well now's the time to cross off another dream. So here I go wish me luck and hopefully this won't end up being the only post on here!! :-)
I'm a wife, mom and proud grandma to 3 beautiful busy boys! I have always had a creative side as long as I can remember. I love to paint, sew, paper craft, refinish furniture and my list goes on and on. My newest love is re-purposing as it is not only good for our environment but a whole lot of fun to see what you can do with something old and worn out. Now that I have reached my 50's I decided to start a bucket list and this is one I can now cross off. I hope to make some wonderful new friends along this journey and hopefully someone will get as much joy seeing my creativity as I do making it happen. Oh and one more thing I'm finally no longer embarassed to enter a thrift store or good will!! It's now become an addiction to find my next piece to work on! Who’d of figured!! I actually can remember my first time scavenging for jewels and my friend Dawn hid on the floor boards of the truck as her children and I flew around town on city wide garbage day!! When you live in a small town everyone knows you and your business so it was quite an adventure. Oh the memories. Long gone the embarrassment!! Blessings to all - Char
