Studio Updates-

Monday Madness...
- Thrifting - Altering Old Book - Creating - Book Order - Crafting -
Over the weekend I was busy...
thrift shopping, yard sale searching, creating artful crafts, 
purchased a few magazines/with a coupon,
received a book order form amazon.
Productive weekend indeed!

Let's get started...
Found these books at a yard sale
for free!
They just wanted to get rid of them, imagine that!
Rummaging through the thrift store, 
which is always super fun!
I came across these straw wreaths .25 each
These definitely can home with me.

found some muslin, cotton linen, and 
this beautiful black/white printed fabric.

I've got some great crafting ideas for all these treasures
stay tuned...
I recreated this project
Vintage Book Expanding File

old readers digest book
pocket size expanding file
decorative tape
tacky glue
acrylic paints
bubble wrap ( layering & texture)
plastic I.D. pocket & a tag
I created this wreath.

Added this adorable wire heart that I created.
Thought it added a touch of sweetness! 
Books & Magazines... 
how I simply adore them all !
I could swallow them up by the mouth full.

Happy Monday!
What is on your plate for the week ahead?


  1. Wow, you found some great treasures. Books for free and straw wreaths for 25cents, unbelievavle. Enjoy, and have a great creative flight this week. Hugs, Valerie

  2. You had a delightful and busy weekend! So fun to see your finds and what you've done with them. I tend to do the "finding" but not so much the "doing with them"! You are a good influence on me!

  3. Wow, you have been very creative with all your new 'treasure'! Love what you did with the book. I too love old books :-)
