I "Hate" Lima Beans Wreath

Ahhhhh guys night out. Kids asleep. Ahhhhhhhh
Crafting ON BABY!!!
I can't and should not complain, I have a stash of ideas in my brainy-bank and all the nights in the world. And a good glass of wine. So here's what I made on a night like this, just because I don't have anything else to do, right?

The Idea

I usually get my ideas from creations around me, on line, in a magazine, in a book, from an  imaginative kids play or just plan and simple as some creative existing form, if you can follow me what I'm saying. This idea was just recreating one of my fellow creative people bloggers idea and making yes Lima Beans Wreath for Christmas . So here it is again , how it looks at the end and read on if you are curious to learn how to make one of this beauties, seriously!

One Pear Please

This post is about how I manage to realize my ideas.
You will soon learn that my middle name is Stubborn and for a good reason.
I like some challenge along the way. There's always a good chance something beautiful will be created.

The Idea

 The idea was to create play food , for my girls to play with in their little kitchen. By now, my girls think I can make anything they want. Ha...nothing like a challenge from my own kids right?
So we went on a little shopping spree and came home with a bag full of pears, apples, tomatoes, one lemon and one pumpkin. Let the fun begin!

Chair-Easy Fix

Sometimes projects show up in my back yard, like this chair.
My friend asked me if I could do something about this chair and fix it.So she dropped it off in my back yard. Beauty!!!I didn't even have to drive to Goodwill for a project(the junk/treasure stash in the basement doesn't count, or the garage , or the Art room. get it.)
To be honest with you I couldn't wait to put my hands on it. The job was done in couple of hours.
Here is the before and the after shots:
