Welcome to my blog-I hope you enjoy!

A Little Wooden Bench

I found this little bench at Good Will.  It is about 4" by 5".  So I altered to hang and added flowers and the saying love.  It was a fun and quick project.

Creepy Altered Spool Book

 Art For The Creative Mind altered spool book-theme On The Dark Side.
 I used a large vintage spool and a vintage spindle with 3 wood balls for the base.  I used vintage ribbon with roses on it, for the pages of the  book.  Added some vintage words from a book and a few embellishments.
 For the top I wrapped wire with crepe paper then added some glitter and the word creepy with using yarn to attach to the wire.
 I used an image of Marie and some bat wings to her.

Shabby Chic Tags

Art For The Creative Mind tag swap.  We were to create two tags -shabby chic with using some clay element. I used paper clay and used two different stamps, that I push into the clap.  Cut around the clay and smooth edges.  I let them air dry.  Then used a light color brown on them and then use a gold to add dept.  Added papers to the tags and then embellished with vintage lace some rhinestone trim and vintage buttons.

A Place For Sweet Treats

 A quick and easy project.  I found this dish and had this brass candle stick.  I painted the candle stick and glued the dis to it.
A few sweets and I have a great serving piece.

A Haunting

A Haunted House

 I love this kit from Debbie Hodge.  I added the trees, chair, skeleton and all the things inside.
 The kit included the house windows, german glass glitter, mica chips, the brass bat and brass findings, the glass framed piece inside the house and  the black glitter.
 I love creating this piece.

Photo Holders

I used the tops to sugar bowls to make these holders.  I used wire and wrapped around the top and then made the swirls at top.  Quick and easy.

The West

 I had these western pins and decided to use them.  So, this is what I came up with.
 I had these 4" square shadow boxes, so  I added a cowboy image, a little leather and some beads and one of the pins to each.
 We have a lot of country around us so hope they sell in our Art League's Holiday House this year.

Small Silver Trays

 I found these small silver trays-they are about 6" across.  I decided to use them for displays and painted them white.
I added the wooden balls for feet.  I think rings and small treasures will look great on them.
