About Me

I'm a 'stay at home mom' of 3 who loves to make things out of anything and everything. There are 3 times a year that are my favorite: Christmas, our Beach Trip and the local Bulk Pick Up time where I can always find wood, furniture, etc. Some of what I make was free from the side of the road or from my Grandparents farm and sometimes salvaged pieces from something that's broke heading for the trash. I like looking online to get craft ideas and hope I can spark a creative idea for you! I also sale Vintage Hat Reproductions that I make in my Etsy Store 'In The Makings", just click on the first widget to the right and thanks for looking!

Silhouette Display

I found an old canvas picture in my grandfathers barn that was in very bad shape (except the frame), i ripped out the canvas pic thinking to myself "i hope this isn't' a famous million dollar painting' lol, i keep the canvas wood frame intact with the regular frame so it could give more layers and take up more space inside, painted the frame(which was dark wood color) and scratched it up to look old, the wire brush made the gray metal shadowy effect on it too, then stretched my fabric in the back and put my 3 girls' silhouettes on it, before each silhouette was in its own black picture frame.
