Try It Tuesday ~ old ladder re-purpose!

Hi guys!!
Thanks for stopping by for Try It Tuesday!
Got a cute one for you.  All you need is an old ladder and a good carpenter.  
Take a look~

My mother-in-law came up with this for a display at church and her son
 ( my hubby) made it for her.  He had the old ladder and added the shelves.  After she uses it at church she is going to use it for blankets in one of her bedrooms.  I love how it all came together!!!

Very cool if you ask me!!
See ya soon~

Hi, Connie here with some Christmas ornaments, handmade, using the Oval Fancy Mirror Frame and the Oval  Scallop Mirror Frame by Clear Scraps.  Each set makes two ornaments.  Great idea for a family fun project!!!

I also used the 6" Nordic Snowflake stencil and the 6" Christmas Bulbs stencil.  So easy to add color and decoration with the stencils.  Just remember to use a solvent ink (StazOn) on this type of surface.  The bird is from the Birds and Cage Embellishments set.

Other products:
Paper/Jenni Bowlin Studio
Ink/Archival, StazOn
twine, pearls, rhinestones, resin flower, pine branch and metal number.
