What are you most proud of? I love repurposing old items into functional pieces of art. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient, keep an open mind when looking at thrift stores, garage sales, and flea markets. You can turn trash into treasure. Look around you, keep eye on new crafting tools, paints and embellishments. You never know when you can come up with a reason to use em. Keep the design simple.
