Cricket Mitchell, Groveport, OH, US

I am a 56 year old mother of 5 and grandma to one. I am also a dumpster diving diva. If its broken, Ill fix it. If its ugly, I want it. I think metal is never beautiful until it rusts and wood is always more attractive when it shows its age. I am married to a wonderful man who has no idea of what I see in a peice of garbage, but patiently helps me recreate it into something we both love. What a guy. Pictured with me is my partner in crime Connie, we oft times share a brain, and we love the same style and can never pass up a whachmakallit, because it will eventually end up in one of our homes or be given as a christmas present to another family member.

Re: Organize Your Desk with Dominoes

Ooooh I love this, will try it this weekend, but am gonna keep the hinge pins whole and drill holes into the wood so that I can thread the pins through them and then I will have posts to put my postage stamps on and maybe a small pair of scissors or whatever will slip over them. Great idea as always

Re: Kitty Collage

Wow, another winner. I love halloween and I have one room, the bath off of my craft room/office, that I keep decorated year round with my halloween goodies, this would feel right at home there. Good job.
