Trash to Treasure with Krazy for Kraft Twine

Trash to Treasure
Hello and thanks for visiting today. I wanted to share with you my fabulous shelf that I was going to throw away. Instead of throwing it in the trash I decided to make it a treasure instead.
This shelf had been hanging in my bathroom forever, with a fish motif. All last week my hubby was on vacation and he painted my bathroom and we got all new accessories to go in it.
Here is the shelf before:
I've had fish in my bathroom for 15 yrs.
I got a little crafty with my Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine.
See those spindles..I wove my kraft twine through those...over and over again.
The background is from a stack of DCWV. I painted everything else that pretty blue green color and added those butterflies. Can you tell that I have a butterfly bathroom now? It is gorgeous!!!
Here's the completed shelf.
And here it is hanging on my wall.
Make sure you check out the challenge going on over at Trendy Twine. Take advantage of the sale on Krazy for Kraft, it is an awesome twine to work with.
Thanks for visiting today.
Come back soon.
Blessings.

Surprise Time with The Pride

Hello All! So good to see each of you today.
It's time to pounce again with the Pride. I'm so excited to share what I created for the Pride's little hop today.
I love having challenges, but this month we get to surprise our followers and our pack.
So, I've been seeing these ACEO cards in different places. I had no idea what an ACEO card was. Being the nosy and inquisitive person that I am....I looked it up.
Here's what it says:ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. It is an art format started by an artist on Ebay two years ago. This artist is known by "bone*diva" on Ebay, but her real name is Lisa Luree.
ACEOs are collectible little pieces of art. An ACEO is always two and one-half inches by three and one-half inches. That is the size of a standard sports trading card. The rule about size is the ONLY rule in the ACEO world. An ACEO can be created in any medium the artist desires: paint, colored pencils, ink, etc. There are even ACEOs made from wood, clay, fabric, and metal.
ACEOs are tiny art works that can be matted and framed to hang on the wall. Many people display their ACEO collections in the same kind of plastic sheets and albums that sports card collectors use. You might slip an ACEO into a greeting card as an extra surprise for a birthday, anniversary, or Christmas. ACEOs sell on Ebay for anywhere from ninety-nine cents to over one hundred dollars or more!

Are you ready to see my ACEO card?
 I did a set of cards. School will be starting in a couple of weeks and I thought these would look so cute on a layout of school pics....whether it be the class pic or the 1st day of school pic.
Cool, huh?
Make sure you drop by BON's Blog next and see what she has created. If you happened here by chance start at the beginning and check out KIM's blog.
I will leave you with a few more pics!




Thanks for joining the pack today and pouncing around in our dens.

What time is it? It's Trendy Twine Time!!

It's just another day at the beach at Trendy Twine this beautiful month of August. This month Trendy Twine is featuring the Krazy for Kraft twine. It is such a versatile twine and goes with everything, especially a day at the beach. Make sure you drop by the blog and enter the August challenge this month using Krazy for Kraft.

For my post today I decided to make an ankle bracelet using the Krazy for Kraft twine. I had some beautiful little seashells that remind me so much of the beach, a little washi tape to act like beads and to top it all off a magnetic clasp and various colors of Trendy Twine to form a sweet little bow. I love my ankle bracelet. I plan on wearing it the rest of summer.
