I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

A Vintage Telephone

I'm not even ceasing to amaze myself.  LOL!  I got to do something with my spare time.  It keeps me out of trouble.
This next project was done and inspired by the tutorial from Laura Dennison of The Paper Trail.  She created a Vintage Telephone for CHA 2012 and when I saw she had posted a tutorial, it was on my to-do list.  I love it.  It now sits on my desk at work for me to look at.

Isn't this purty... as my Tennesse friend would say.

A Vintage Gas Pump

I have really been in a mini album, altered book, altered art project mode for a while.  I've been having lots of fun creating all sorts of nice art to display at work and in my craft room.  My latest project is Kathy Orta's Vintage Gas Pump.

I loved it when she debuted it for CHA 2012 and couldn't wait to make it.  So when the time came, I set out to make sure that I could get this done. 

Work does get in the way , lol, but it does allow me to be able to afford the little necessities that I need to be creative.

So without further ado, here is my version of the Vintage Gas pump.  Yes, I know the dial on top is crooked...  but I think it adds to the charm of it.  Haha... who am I kidding.  But its mine and I love every little oops about it.
