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 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.
