About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

$$$ store crafting....

Yep,  I shop for crafts every place I go.  
The Dollar store is no exception.

I created this for a challenge on the Dollar Store Crafts blog

You have to incorporate some school supplies into the project. 

So, what do these items have in common????
...and yes all of these items were purchased at our local Dollar Store.

Something that is beautiful!!!!

I love making home decor out of the most ordinary objects. 

It really looks way more stunning in real life.

Doesn't it look like something that can be bought at a high end home decor store.
It really only took me minutes to put this together. 
As soon as I saw the items I knew what I was going to make. 

I simply stuck the thumb tacks in very close together to cover the styrofoam balls and then I inserted a piece of the floral wire for a stem. I used a small amount of glue on the spot where I was inserting the wire.  Would a small section around the stems and arranged it to my liking.    DONE!!!

Until later, crafting genius'......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!
