I love creating and giving new life to discards. I love shopping at thrift stores, gargae sales, and curbs for items that have 'potential'. When I come home from a shopping trip, i always seem to have items with 'potential' rather than a useable item. Oh well... I have a wonderful non-creative husband who is always (mostly) happy to help me with my projects, and is usually complementary when we have the project completed. I also work in Silver, and make silver jewelry. It took a bit to figure out how to upload my photos- but I hope you enjoy my ideas.

I really enjoy seeing all these wonderful projects that are shared here: inspiring!
