Fine Rusty Junk!

WOYWW! Today I was the lucky recipient of some fine rusty junk!  My friends invited me to come pick through a box of things they left on their carport for me.  What fun I had looking through all the stuff they discarded.  Thank you Jackie and Harold!  I can't wait to create something new with this fine junk.  Hey, who can find the animal teeth or the crystal prism? Czech out  WOYWW see what others are working on today.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday

WOYWW!  While my computer takes her happy time loading I go back and forth to the work desk and make handmade greeting cards. I like to cut the corrugated cardboard beverage sleeves from Starbucks into small pieces and use them on each card for a little "punch".  Often times I use trinkets found on the floor of my studio (scary) or on my workdesk. Gold and colorful thread works nicely, too!

Blue Monday - Paper or Plastic?
Paper or plastic?  Paper, of course!  I'll be teaching my paper bag hat making class at the fabulous Frills in Taylor, Texas on Thursday evening, September 1!  Seen here in the photo is a sampling of the kind of hat you can create from a simple paper bag.  All you need is: a large paper bag, acrylic paint, tacky glue, trinkets and silk flowers/leaves!  My hat is BLUE, but yours can be the color of your choice!  I just love this aqua/lagoon shade of blue.   Click here to see more BLUE creations on the "Blue Monday" blog site.

More Newel Posts

More interesting newel posts!  We saw these when we were on our recent trip to the beautiful North Woods of Wisconsin and the fabulously green fields of Indiana!  The stone walkway was built some time during the 1930's.  Isn't it exquisite?
