Therefore, crafting has been on the very back burner! But, never fear, I have some things that I did before the craziness and did not get posted. These are not challenges from the book, but are a challenge anyways.
Altering!!! I never thought I could alter items when I first started crafting. However, in the past few years, I have turned out some pretty cute things! So, I challenge you to try to alter something. If you see an item that has potential, give it a shot. I am horrible at seeing something, then having a vision of what I want it to look like and making it come together. I am always amazed at the home design shows where designers do this.
My husband is a beer collector (and drinker) but more as a connoisseur, than just to drink, so he asked for a "special place" to keep his beer caps. We turn these caps into jewelry, so we keep them. I altered a cookie tin for this purpose, and here is the result:
|It says Bottlecaps wrapped around the middle.|
I have another altered item to share, but I am going to save it for later in the week, so I will definitely have something to blog about! I can't wait to see your altered items!
