halloween collage

Posted by on Oct 28, 2015

My first Halloween project left me with a few extra images from my “I See All” books, so I decided to use them in a collage. Personal note – several of these images are nightmare-inducing. I raided my craft stash and found poster board, a black frame and the gold letters I picked up at West Elm while in Seattle. I used a paint brush and...

halloween skull

Posted by on Oct 23, 2015

Halloween is quickly approaching and I took some time last month to put together a couple of DIY projects. I had spotted some cool Halloween skulls at a home decor shop and thought it would be easy to replicate for a fraction of the price. I picked up this skull at a dollar store.  It was a good size and the stick was removable so the skull could be placed...

diy – yo-yo runner

The letters are attached to the outside of the glass for a...

Posted by on Jun 5, 2015

I created this great portrait of my family using a photo from the mid-80’s.  It’s a joint Mother’s/Father’s Day gift for my parents. Here is our fabulous family photo.  We are rocking some sweet, sweet ’80’s styles.  You can’t see my lovely fuchsia tights and it’s difficult to count the number of buckles on...

adding a little sparkle to an old painting

Posted by on Mar 27, 2015

I found this painting at Value Village for $17.99 and used a 30% discount to get the price even lower.  I really liked the size of the piece and am a sucker for landscapes. I’d been on the hunt for a painting like this after watching an episode of Buy it! Fix it! Sell it! where Tiffany Pratt bought a piece of artwork at an auction and added her own...
