I'm Not Crafty...

I remember my grandma telling me how her mom was a true artist; Great-grandma once made a vase out of chicken wire & melted crayons & supposedly it was beautiful! Grandma would get irritated when company came because her mom would disasterize the kitchen making something exotic & Grandma would have to clean it up. I don't think I inherited all of Grandma Greats artistic ability, but destroying a kitchen to create something fancy is something I have done can relate with. I am done telling myself that "I'm not crafty"! I have decided to resurrect some of my grandmas genes!

The furniture in our home is abused well loved and so in between being a wife & mother, running my own little business, & my church duties I will occasionally post projects I am working on w/ perhaps a few tutorials in the mix.

Money is oh so tight so I might try my hand at Grandma Great's chicken wire vase some time! Looking forward to this journey; come join me!


  1. I love anything that reminds me of our grandma--she was such an amazing woman. I love that she inspires us all and we are all looking for ways to keep her in our hearts and to feel connected to her.

  2. True Kathleen. I miss her still! Thanks for your comment!
