Living in the Midwest, most of our travels include forests and trees. Campgrounds provided plenty of shade and we rarely found ourselves needing an awning. Most of our sun hours are spent walking in the woods or touring historic sites. There are occasions when a light rain storm is blowing and it is nice not […]
Well, this little project has come to a close. I am so happy with the way this tree has come together. It was fun making something from found things and spending time just creating things. I let the serendipity and the creative muse guide me without stressing over what I would make. It really […]
Inspiration from Trader Joe’s tin came to me. When this one started to happen, I knew I was going to love it. I found the stick on a dog walk and it was covered in exquisite moss, so I knew I needed a wide ornament to fully showcase nature’s gift. The long cake pan became […]
I came up with this two part ornament. After painting up the little canvas, I decided it needed a bit more bling so I attached the painted Pringles lid with a little gold wire and glues a bit of fancy cording scrap around the edge. I really like how the lights seem magnified behind the […]

I’m working on these ornaments as I post them. That means that inspiration needs to come on an as needed and on time basis. What I find is that trusting that inspiration will come is part of the magic. It’s about allowing and putting the energy of success out there. It’s about keeping one’s eyes […]
Today’s ornament incorporates a Thanksgiving pie tin, some scrap Construction Paper, a mini flat canvas, a piece of an old Garland and a bit of vegetable garden twine. I cut the edge of the pie tin with shears (saving the wedge pieces for another day’s ornament. I then bent and shaped the edges to help […]
Today’s ornament incorporates the other camper ornament I was given last week. It started out red but had to change to Casita white! Then it had to become a big snow globe kind of ornament. I put her in a “brownie bites” acetate package from the grocery store and wrapped her edge in some of […]
