Creating and Re-creating!

Lord have mercy! It has been almost two months since I last posted. This will be short, but just wanted to share what is new with me. Over the past months I have read many blogs and looked at an innumerable amount of fascinating adventures that others have undertaken to make something out of nothing, and in some cases, something beautiful out of something UGLY!

Anyway, instead of just looking I finally started doing. Below you will see a few things I have done. I have to mention Katie's Rose Cottage and give credit where it is due on the Flea Market Totes. She was my inspiration. I have made a bunch of these cuties (so many my eyes are crossed) to sell at a Christmas Market at our church. It is the second year we have done the market where vendors set up for FREE and the only requirement is to donate a $20 door prize to be given away. Plus the ladies of the church provide chocolate treats to enjoy while you shop. Can't beat that! I figured since it won't cost anything to set up, why not try this and see how I like it? It was a lot of fun last year as a shopper, and the chocolate desserts were over the top.

I have been toying with some ideas for a while about what to do when I retire, and it has to be something I love. Making things with my hands gives me an indescribeable amount of joy, so that has to be in there somewhere. These are just a few of the things I have finished and have many more works in progress. I hate I forgot to take before photos before spraying a million frames today. Most of the frames I have used are being recycled. I am using up some of the old books I have stored for years, and making some pallet projects as well. What fun!



 Sorry these photos aren't the best. It is late and I need to get in the bed so I can finish what projects I can tomorrow. Sunday is church and next week it's back to work, with the market on Friday night, so I will be sleepless in Hurley next week. We will see how it goes. Wishing you a remembrance of all God's blessings on your life and a happy, peaceful Christmas season. Keep Jesus in the center of your life and everything else will fall into place. 
P.S. And don't just sit there. Create and re-create!
