Makeover for Old Bookcases:

Well, I decided to liven up the bookcases which sit in my living room. Actually, I have two more bookcases to redo. I took all my precious books off of the shelves and carefully removed the backs. I bought some material at Hobby Lobby and made my own decoupage glue. I made the glue by mixing three parts Elmer's glue and one part water. Then, off to work I went and decoupaged the material to the backs of my bookcases. And this is what I ended up with. Needless, to say, I like what I see. Now, it is time to put the books back on to the shelves.. TA DA!

My Little Girl:

 I took a break today from all my fall cleaning and saw this cute little one at my local craft store. Well, I  decided that she needed a home; so I bought her.

Photo Box

Old memories stored in a new box. 

This is my latest project and I had lots of fun putting it together. I started with this picture box, paint, scrap book paper, glue, and acrylic spray.

This is what I ended up with.

 This is a picture of the box without pictures in it.
This is a picture of the top of my box.

 This is a picture of the inside of my box.

And these are my old memories stored in a new box: pictures of my children when they were still children. Now, they are grown adults whom I am proud of. 

Hope you like my latest project! TA-DA
