It is my favorite time of the month, the International Bloggers Club Challenge. We are a group of friends from all over the world who get together every month to share our projects and discuss how things are done in our countries. Last time we shared projects that were made using wire. And the month before it was projects for gardening.
This month we are going to work with rocks or in my case pebbles. The beaches in my area in Greece are not full of sand but full of pebbles instead. So when I think of pebbles I think of the beach. I am going to use pebbles to inspire my love of the beach.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Some of you may know that we've had a new addition to our household. Actually you should all know since I've been showing off my Mother's Day gift every chance I get. It's a Labrador puppy and we have named him Tatou.
Yes Tatou has taken over our lives and our home. It is littered with puppy toys and leashes, schedules and you name it. Things were all over the place till I remembered that I had a piece of plywood and decided to do some housecleaning.
It was time to take matters into my DIY hands and create a command center for my dog! I never in a million years expected to be doing a project like this. Haha!
Last week I shared the reveal of my girls' room with you. But I have a confession, even when a room is finished, there is always room for improvement. In this case we needed a chair for the computer desk, because that ottoman that my girl was using was just not cutting it. I needed to find a better solution pronto- that poor ottoman was getting squashed.
After a quick trip to the basement I found not one but four of these chairs. Well I only needed one, but thought I should redo two of them. Because you never know... And so I ended up getting two unique makeovers from one type of chair.
A few weeks ago I shared my wreath with you. It was such a great wreath and oh so full ... in fact those bells were so full that I couldn't close my storm door on them. So I had to move them elsewhere.
Today I'm here to share how I made them look so lovely and bright, and where I put them to make a pretty holiday decor with an old tray.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
I keep on saying I am finished with my Christmas decorations but really you know I 'm not. I'm never finished because there is just too much stuff to be repurposed and it seems to be right in front of me all of the time. Case in point what happened for this project.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Today I am back again with my dollar store crafting buddies. You may remember we did this a while back and I made a beautiful dollar store fall wreath. Well today I am going to show you how to make a Christmas craft with dollar store items.
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their dollar store finds.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
