Crafty Goodies with a vintage flair~

This is the blog post I did for The Country Chic Cottage if you didn't see it on May 25th.

Hi Everyone~ I'm so excited to be on The Country Chic Cottage to share what I love. You can ALWAYS find me in one of two places, either in my craft room creating or junkin'!! I am a crafty girl who loves to create with a vintage flair. What is junk to someone else is a diamond in the rough to me. I love crafting with and re-purposing old things among other paper crafts. As always, I love to share creativity with others and invite you to visit me at Crafty Goodies.

I took legal size note pads and had them cut into thirds and decorated them with Jenni Bowlin Studio's paper and embellishments.

 Here is a close up of the toppers.  You can go here for more details.

One of my features, on my blog, is"Try it Tuesdays" where I share something totally out of the ordinary and show you how to create a treasure of your own. I also have my "Remember This" posts at least once a month in which I share a goody I have wandered across and re-purposed. I also post pictures of my junkin' finds right along side my crafts.  I so hope you've enjoyed my post and have come away inspired and once again I extend an invitation  for you to visit me at Crafty Goodies.
