It is Wednesday again and I am so happy to be home so I can play along on WOYWW. I hadn't realized how addicted I have become to the group until I couldn't play along one week and had to use trip pictures last week to post. If you want to play along visit Stamping Ground the home of Julia Dunnit and blog hop around with the rest of us! It is lots of fun and I will warn you...very addictive!
I came home last Saturday from helping my daughter and her husband bury his mother. Rainey had been ill with all sorts of medical problems not the least of which was abdominal cancer. Rainey turned out to be a dark horse and had a history most of her family didn't know about. Oh nothing bad or horrible just that she was a scrapbooker, did altered art, knitted, crocheted, painted and even took classes to learn how to do some of it. We found notebooks filled with notes she had taken in the classes and drawings that she had made from pictures out of magazines. Rainey loved her cats and we were surprised at finding no less than 6 scrapbooks filled with pictures of them, scrapbooks of trips she had taken over the years, pictures of her son filled a book...and no one knew she knew how to do it. Her house and yard were filled with all sorts of flowers and she loved roses in all forms. I wish I could have known her a little better, we were kindred spirits.
Okay on to my project I started last night! I brought this little house home from Iowa with me because my daughter was going to toss it out. The minute I saw it I knew that I wanted to alter it Tim Holtz style!
Here is a picture of my desk and the house in progress. I am not for sure exactly what it will turn out to be but I think I will use it to store buttons or sewing supplies on the shelf in my craft room.
Hopefully I will get it done by the weekend and I will post a finished picture so come back next week and see it!
