Hey Howdy Hey Attempting Aloha readers! My name is Kristyn visiting from Good Gravy Crafts, I am so glad to being joining Charlie today for a Blog Swap. I must admit, this is my very first blog swap so if I sound like a newbie well it’s because I am! When Charlie posted awhile back about the swap I was hoping she would send me a plane ticket to visit her in sunny Hawaii…sigh. I live in Massachusetts where right now we have over 2feet of snow on the ground. We also have another storm heading our way Friday, so needless to say I REALLY wish I was in Hawaii. Enough complaining already, I know.
I am a Mommy to two little ones, Little Miss Magic was 3 in October and Bahboo was 1 in October. My hubby’s hard work allows me to stay at home with them, which one of the many reasons he rocks! I have been creating “arts and crafts” my entire life. I have no training, just pure inspiration from other crafters and some brainpower. Charlie is one of those bloggers that inspires me all the time, I love that she reduces, reuses and recycles. I like all mediums, but it makes me really happy lately to turn something used into something fab!
Today I am sharing my thrift shop find, an ugly wall clock turned main attraction of my Winter Mantle.
Everything is had on hand,re-used or thrifted except the fake flowers and bowl filler.
:The small paper covered vases were remade from tomato cans.
:The books were covered with paper(same paper on the small vases) I had and tied up with twine.
:The bowl was .50 at the Thrift Store
:The tall glass vase and ice covered twigs I have had for years.
My entire Winter Mantle was under $20 spent! Later this week I will be doing a tutorial and a giveaway, so I would love for all you fabulous readers to subscribe to my blog.(I don’t know why the Follow Me button is not working, argh WordPress)
This has been such a great swap with Charlie, I am so honored to be here. Thank you all for taking the time to read my post, hope to have you visit me at Good Gravy Crafts soon!
Thanks again Charlie, I had fun!!
