I have been using food jars to store my crafting and arts bit and pieces….

but could no longer handle the glass not being clear and the branding on the tops!

SO…FIXED THAT!

I went crazy with the yellow, Yes…

But yellow IS awesome!

That was after I soaked and removed the labels and then used “Goof Off” to take off any date stamps and left over label glue!

I know the trend is to paint the item glued on top too…

But I like the my toppers in the NUDE!

And some of the toppers even have meaning to me!

Okay, just one!  

Like the green VW Bug is a gift I gave my husband as a joke, because we play “Slug Bug” all the time!

Note: We only do old bugs & buses…other wise we would be too bruised!

But I do have to say I LOVE the doll hands….funky in a creepy way!

Truth…

I am keeping 3 of them, and I decided to put the two with old knobs in it in my shopito to see if I can sell some old inventory that I haven’t used! Paint it, shine, put it in a fun bottle…and maybe it will sell!

NOW…

The below piece I did not dedicate a whole post to because I did not photograph it along the way.

It all stemmed from making the “flowers” for a wreath I made in a previous post.

Cutting, folding and rolling magazine paper flowers takes a lot of time!

But the work was well worth it because…

I love with swirly, whirley, twirly look to them!

I had a wood photo piece that  needed a punch of texture…

So, added felt & magazine paper loves on it!
