LOOKING BACK-at Altered Items

Monday morning!  Time to look back at past projects.
Today, I'm looking back at altered items.  I love taking something that would be thrown away and making something with it.  Most of the items shared today were made as gifts or to put in my ETSY  OR CRAFT CAFE shops. Out of all the projects in this post, I think I kept ONE of them for myself!  

Altered journals

This was made for my DIL.

This "IPhone" journal I made for my daughter.  She loved it!
 I made several matching sets for grandkids. The set includes a journal, photo holder and notepad.

I really like how this one turned out.  I like the closure on it.

 I made this cute holder instead of a stocking for my DIL.  It's made from a small drink holder. I've done a few of these and the sky's the limit as to what you can put in them or used them for!

 Scrap 2x4s made this fall decoration.  I use a LOT of scrap wood in my crafting.

 An old 33 LP turned into a clock. Graphic 45 paper line is one of my favorites.  I have this in my craft room.

 Dray erase frame for a gift. Her kitchen theme is coffee!

 Framed pin cushion.  I've made several of these-love them!  I have one on my craft desk that matches my decor. They are pretty-and functional.

I could do a week of posting altered items!  I think altered items and cards are my favorite things to do.  Maybe next week I will look back at some of the hundreds of cards I have made!  Until then, have a great and productive week!  

Thank you so much for coming by!
