I fell in love with primitives a few years ago and Easter is no exception. I'm not a big fan of the pastels. I prefer things grungy! So after tons of research I finally came up with several ways to prim up all my old eggs. I've dipped several in blackened beeswax then rubbed in spices and I've painted and sanded a few wooden ones. Still working on a few more ideas and will post them if I ever get them finished. The older I get the faster the days go and I don't seem to get as much accomplished anymore. Then there's the fact that I swear I'm getting adult ADD. I just can't seem to stay on one project and end up with 3 or 4 going at once. I'm lucky to ever get one finished. Then I end up with a mess all over the house and boy can it get out of control. I just can't seem to keep my mind on one thing. Anyone else have this problem?
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
