I have been artistic and creative as long as I can remember. I love to sew, quilt, junk, rubber stamp and scrapbook greeting cards, and more. This site is right up my alley! I love looking at how discarded items become a treasure in their own right!

I am married with 4 sons, a pug and an Italian greyhound. I live in Southwest Utah, and enjoy the beautiful red rock landscape in my neighborhood!

Re: Christmas Industrial Gear Part Two

Love the look! You always turn junk into gold!

Re: Two Repurposed Sewing Machine Drawer Holiday Card Holders

Love these! Because I'm so limited on storage space for holiday items, I think it would be a great idea to have the drawer detach from the back tree, then have it interchangeable for other celebrations such as birthday, Valentine's etc. Of course, you'd need a different back board for each event. Easier to store just the back and rotate them in and out.
