If you’ve read my previous post, you’ll know that I’m in the process of reorganizing my closet space especially all of my jewelry.I say in-the-process because it’s always ongoing, changing, and possibly moving things around so it works better. I have so many necklaces I don’t wear mostly because I forget that I have them… Continue reading DIY Necklace Storage
So I’ve been in the process of re-organizing my closet/dressing space and downsizing as much as possible. I have accumulated just too much “stuff.” Besides, getting rid of old stuff makes it much easier to bring home new stuff, right? I’ve had these handy little mini chests of drawers and it’s perfect for storing my… Continue reading Crazy for Altering Stuff!
Happy New Year!!! First post of the year, woohoo! I made these 3D names for my kids. It was a last minute decision (a week before) and I got it in my mind I could finish them in time for Christmas. I decided I would do a couple letters of each name and if it… Continue reading 3D Letters
I had seen a blog post about turning a phone box into a travel jewelry box. I made some for my girls for Christmas. So happy with how they turned out. So are they!

I really needed some new covers for my glasses. I was so inspired by the ones my sister made me that I decided to try it myself. I have some crazy quilt squares just calling to be used. I love how they turned out!
Got your attention, didn’t I?! No, I didn’t discover a new form of alchemy but I have discovered the fun of using crackle medium! I wanted to try it out on something so I chose a discarded shoe box. It’s from my husband’s Euro 45/US 11.5 shoes so it’s a pretty substantial size. For the… Continue reading From Cardboard to Wood
Using up my fabric stash is an on-going project. I have a couple yards of novelty material with 2000 printed all over it that was given to me after 2000 had come and gone. I finally had a way to use some of it! You can’t tell, but it has gold and silver reflective sparkly… Continue reading Stenciled Apron
My daughter liked her other shoes so much that she asked me to do another! We decided on blues and greens and they turned out fab!! The paints are glittery and look really great in person. We’re both so happy with the result!
I’ve been wanting to unleash my creativity onto a pair of shoes for some time. I’ve had the paints for quite a while now and finally got to it! These are actually my daughter’s shoes and she gave me the go-ahead. It did take me a little while to gather up my courage and feel… Continue reading Fun Altered Canvas Shoes
