i’ve been featured!

Thank you to these lovely people for taking the time to feature me in one way or another. I sure do appreciate it! Please check out their sites when you have an opportunity to see all kinds of creative ideas. 🙂

{Book Page Covered File Cabinet} – I pulled our dusty rusty old file cabinet out of the corner and gave her a little upgrade…and she got noticed.  🙂


{The Pass It On Project} – If you haven’t read about it, please do…you can join anytime, anywhere.  Just trying to spread some kindness around the world.


{Upcycled Spring Wreath} – I took apart a sale holiday decoration, wrapped it with fabric from an old (clean) dog bed, added some driftwood, cut out some flowers and a birdie from a cereal box (my new favorite crafting material) and hot glued on some sea glass to make a little eclectic spring wreath.  Oh…and then I painted a few polka dots for fun.

{Pallet Word Art} – I took apart a pallet, re-wired some of them back together and painted a few thoughtful expressions on them.  This could easily be done with strips of wood.  The project only cost me $2 for the stencils.
