Obsesive Compulsing Crafting

We needed to put all our Photoshop fun to good use, so while our current project dries in the garage, we came up with these...

Vintage optometrist lenses turned into charms



Another example of our OCC: Obsessive Compulsive Crafting.
You know what we are talking about. If you visit this site often, you probably suffer from the same condition.

Come on, just say it:
My name is.................and I'm an Obsessive Compulsive Crafter!

Now let's hurry back to the garage and finish painting...the rain is supposed to be back this afternoon!

Hi! Oh, those turned out so cool and very clever! I've never even seen those kind of lenses before. You must know the great places to thrift.

I looked at some previous posts - I adore the way the No. 1 and 2 chairs turned out - amazing!

I enjoyed myself so much I decided to join as a follower. Come see me and I'd be delighted if you'd follow me also...

Hola Marcela! Qué placer tu comentario, saber que del otro lado del mundo alguien nos ve y le gusta lo que hacemos da una enorme satisfacción.
Estuve recorriendo tu blog hoy, es hermoso también, es increíble la cantidad de distintos estilos que se pueden lograr con los muebles antiguos, algunos mas románticos, otros más almodovarianos y extravagantes, pero cada uno conserva una mezcla de distinción y nostalgia distinta de explicar.
Nuestro proyecto -por suerte y gracias al enorme esfuerzo que le ponemos- crece dia a dia y nos reporta cada vez más satisfacciones. Sabé que acá o sea donde sea tu lugar en el mundo, mientras creas realmente en lo que hacés, vas a salir airosa.

Un beso grande y mil gracias por escribirnos, contanos cómo conociste el blog porque morimos de intriga!

Those are so cool!

Me? I'm OCW. Obsessive Compulsive Wisher. Or Want-to-er. I want to craft. I wish I had the time. But there's too much work to be done first. I WILL get there. In the meantime, I keep collecting ideas. Hey! Maybe that's what I am. OCCIC. Obsessive Compulsive Craft Idea Collector! LOL

That is such a cool idea. I'm telling you, Clara and Marcela, think about the book idea...
