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.
