Creating something new everyday...a veritable cornucopia of crafts.
It's a part of who I am...
Creating heirloom pieces at present - leaving my footprint behind, and perhaps a little something extra for my loved ones in the future

Functional AND Pretty Office Organization
Not only office organization....but HOME organization can be creative as well as functional. I decided to replace a functional but visually unappealing office organizer (for pens/pencils/notes), with a Victorian themed decoupaged coffee can that serves the very same purpose. I used special vintage themed gift wrap to decoupage onto the coffee can, and then I dry-brushed cream,brown, and turquoise colored paint on top of it to give it an aged look. I finished it off with a copper colored ribbon and accented it with satin cream roses. As a result, I have a counter-top organizer that adds a special touch to my kitchen.
