Here we at the end of the month, and that means it's Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge time. For those of you who are here for the first time, this is a monthly challenge that I participate in with my blogger friends who live all over the world. We meet up each month to compare notes and see how we do things in our corner of the world. Last month, we examined our epic hits and fails, and before that we shared our spring crafts.
This month we're all about the outdoors. With the weather warming up, at least in the northern hemisphere, because our Michelle is on the other side of the world, we thought it would be a good excuse to go outdoors and work on projects. In my case, re-purposing a tire rim into a unique wind chime
The other day I was feverishly cleaning up the living room in order to take a nice photo of the coffee table for my epic hits and epic fails post. As I was cleaning I noticed a blank canvas on the wall, above my chivalrous trunk. What was this I wondered? And why was it here?
It turns out my daughter had left it there after one of her video shoots. I don't know what that means but who am I to argue with artists!
I really liked the way it looked next to the black display and the sand colored wall. I decided I'd leave it there but it did need a little something. And so I stopped the cleaning and followed my muse! That was how I got an idea to make a simple canvas art with keys.
It's that time of the month again when I get to participate in the International Blogger's Club Challenge. For any of you who don't know, we are a group of friends who get together once a month to participate in a challenge and to talk about our countries, since we are international.
Last month we did a challenge on Spring crafts and we have also done spring before. So this time around we chose an entirely new to us project. We are going to show you our epic hits and epic fails, chosen from our past projects as bloggers. Some of these are not very popular so you may be seeing them for the first time.
It is my favorite time of the month again when I get to join up with my besties and share with you another episode of The International Bloggers Club. This edition marks our one year anniversary since starting this special challenge and it has been an amazing hear full of fun projects and also a learning experience as we learn about each others' countries.
For those of you who are new here, we are five bloggers who live in different parts of the world and we share our projects and traditions from each of our countries. This month we are focusing on Valentine's Day and a Framed Heart Craft.
Happy December everyone!
This month is all about the Holidays, decorating our home, the trees and wrapping the presents. All of these fun activities can take a toll on a person. Especially me! Today I'm going to show you how I do my gift wrapping with vintage fabric.
I love to see the presents all wrapped up and placed under the tree in time for Christmas. I remember as a little kid anxiously waiting to open those presents. And when my kids were young I'd sent them off to bed and stay up half the night wrapping boxes and adding embellishments. It had become a therapeutic ritual for me after all of the rushing around and shopping.
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
