    Creative uniqueness

    Seems like I have been sick forever, but finally . . . I'm feeling way better after giving in to having to take antibiotics and quit trying to heal myself like I normally do.  Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

    The Captain and I spent the past couple of days cleaning up the yard and working toward getting the gates up in the front yard to give us more privacy.  Mounds of garbage are lined up at the street and we have much more to go.  The disadvantages of having a large property!  Lots of cleanup and maintenance.

    I'm finally getting back to my normal online activity . . . and have found awesome new websites and some really cool stuff that very creative people have come up with.  The following are a few that I had to feature . . . the theme is creative uniqueness.

    Faux Metal Wall Art

    I have been blown away by this craft.

    Unless you have seen this done somewhere else, I bet you can't guess what materials are used in these gorgeous examples of wall art.  The concept is ingenious!  I love it!!!

    Let me not ruin the surprise materials . . . if you like Suzy's wall art and would love to dabble in this craft that she created, click on the photo to go to the tutorial and be amazed at her creative genius!!

    Suzy is my new favorite craft goddess!

    Sandy Elliott of Cherished Handmade Treasures has come up with a new twist to the glass jar crafting thing . . . everyone else has been repurposing glass jars by making candles . . . Sandy has made actual lights out of them!

    Cherished Handmade Treasures

    Glass jars . . . I love them . . . I'm always looking for new and creative uses.  I really hate that the trend is for the food manufacturers to use plastic jars.  Click here for some of my past posts that feature creative uses of glass jars.

    Leave me a comment if you have an awesome craft (with a link to the post) and I may feature it in a future post . . . especially glass jar projects :)
