As you may know, my friend Stephenie (www.mycraftyadventures.com) and I have a blog segment together called HE CRAFTS SHE CRAFTS. For this installment she sent me an old book ready for the scrap heap. Now let me tell you about Steph. She’s a love bug and a very good friend. When you’re good friends with someone you KNOW just how to hook them and she knew EXACTLY what she was doing when she sent me this old book and said “GO TO TOWN!” She knew that I would eat it up. This one is for you, Stephenie, and for all of the people who don’t know what to do with an old book when it’s time to toss it.
BTW, since I’m not huge a fan of wreaths, I decided that a wreath is just what I needed to do to challenge myself creatively.
MAKE SURE to head over to www.mycraftyadventures.com and say hello to Stephenie and join her blog! I know she would LOVE it.
Leave a comment and we’ll send someone a goody bag filled with, well, goodies…
Stephenie made beautiful, feminine votive holders with flowers and pearl accents. NICE! Check it out:
