More decoupage love...

Next to making skin & body care products my new obsession is decoupage. I dabbled with it back in high school but never really had much success. This is what I've been working on lately. I love the whole concept of turning something ordinary or even trash worthy into something functional and beautiful. I'm pretty new to this but I find it so therapeutic. I sourced paper from my local craft shop and also from a wonderful seller on Etsy who has vintage papers, documents and other lovlies for paper crafts!

One of my projects inspired by EAB Designs is this adorned apothecary bottle.

I had so much fun making this special little bottle.

My second project was to take this hot cocoa tin and transform it into a beautiful pen holder for my desk. Grace sat across from me doing her own collage work. It was such a pleasure to sit quietly with her - listening to soft music and happily cutting and pasting away.

My pen holder has a travel theme to it...since I often dream of jet setting to fabulous destinations.  This project was a delight and it cost me pennies to make.

Okay, well that's all for now, but I have a stack of finds from thrift stores that I can't wait to re-invent!

Never thought of myself as crafty but then again I never thought I'd make skin care products either...who knew?

xo,
