Paper Clam Shell Purse – Upcycled from Magazines

Quilled Paper Purse

Hello friends,

I am knee deep in a couple of different projects this week but I have not quite pulled any one of them together yet. So for today’s post I will take you back to last Christmas for another one of my zany gifts. This may, in fact, be the most zany of them all. I call it the “little paper pig purse”. It does not really resemble a pig but some how that is the only name for it. To make this story even a little crazier I have to admit, that this is not the only purse I have made out of magazine paper. You may have seen my post on the paper mustache purse a few months ago. I guess you will have to be the judge on which one is the craziest. Continue reading “Paper Clam Shell Purse – Upcycled from Magazines”

Upcycled Magazine Paper Mustache Purse

Good Morning or Afternoon or Evening to you,

It is snowy and cold outside as I write this but I really can’t complain . We have had a very mild winter so far and March is just around the corner. I have been working on a few projects around the house lately and have not been up to my usual crafty behaviors. Therefore I will share with you the making of a paper mustache purse that I made for one of my nieces for Christmas.

Have I mentioned that my family are always good sports when it come to my crazy gift ideas? Well they are.

I have to admit that the idea in my head for this gift seemed so crazy that I almost switched up the design. After all I was already making a purse out of paper. Wasn’t that crazy enough? Continue reading “Upcycled Magazine Paper Mustache Purse (Yep :-)”

Its football baby – Steeler Jacket Repair

Game day at Heinz Field January 1, 2017

If you are not a football fan you may not be as excited about play off season as we are here in our little neck of the woods.  Our neck is in Colorado so you might make us for Bronco fans but you would be wrong.  Our house is a little satellite territory of Steeler Country.  So, we are facing Kansas City with high hopes this coming Sunday.   As you might guess we have just a little bit of black and gold apparel from jerseys to jackets and hats to gloves.
