March is National Craft month!
Our theme this month is: Favorite Craft Techniques
 I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE to alter items!!!
 It was a really ugly drawer box until I went to work changing that. That is Tim Holtz tear able tissue tape, using a script and also a musical note design. Even going so far to add a distress ink in picket fence of course.
I bet you can't believe I even used Tim Holtz inks to distress with also.Those doilies were in my supplies and I like having them inked.
 Using many flowers, ribbons,trims I distress with inks and glue and stickles.
I was thrilled to be able to use pearls and decorations.If you would like to see a better view of my altered project- check out this video of my Craft room.
Now hold on a minute I have a couple announcements to share and even a giveaway!!!

  3. Thanks for sharing your craft room with us. I love the wood blocks with the velcro on the bottom and the spot for the dauber on top. What a great idea! I bet you could market those as not everyone has someone handy in their life to help create such items. As with many people my craft room is a work in progress, so I love to see how others put theirs together.
