Reasons to blog...

Someone asked me not long ago why I blog...

That's easy to answer...

Because it inspires me.

Because it helps me to look at objects from a different angle.

Because it has pushed me to learn and try new techniques.

Because it has allowed me to connect with a lot of creative people.

And of course...
because blogging is fun and addictive!!

This is a great storage box and would look awesome in my "studio". What did it look like before you covered it and what did you use?

Love it!

Good morning, girls!

A couple of things about the box:
It's an IKEA box, very plain that I used for years to hold my kid's crayons.
I sanded it and decoupaged the front with letters written by 2 brothers during the war to their parents.
As much as I loved it, I didn't keep it...It sold already! Thank you for all your comments!!

I wished I did not live so far from your shop. IKEA? You could have fooled me. Well you did. I have a basement full of white IKEA furniture and what not. You should create a post on how you created your last project. I'm a new follower because I love your creations. Regarding blogging I too find that I have made friends but I have learned a lot as well. Thanks for sharing.
