Creating cool stuff out of salvage finds derived out of need. I started my life over again, and with little funds and knowledge, set out to furnish my home with… well, nothing.
Curbside diving and thrifting became my shopping mall. And creating with my finds ending up producing one of a kind creations.
But once I started seeing some results, a fire lit. I found out about blogs, then spent a few (lot) late nights learning how to build and operate one.
So I started sharing my outlandish, unique, ultra affordable (free) creations. Pressing that publish button was downright scary sometimes!
But I’m so glad I did. Never did I fathom that people would actually like my weird ideas! Emails and comments with sincere appreciation came in, for having been awakened with a new sense of hope.
I mean, if I could do it with nothing, why not they?
The blog continued to grow, as did I. Learning new things each day became part of the ride.
I share my love of decorating with junk on the blog and at speaking engagements, host workshops to teach others how to create and decorate for nearly free, team up with companies where I can help my readers in some way, and have now fired up a line of old sign styled stencils, so you can easily make your own old signs!
Who knew that scrummaging along the side of the road could become a passion that I couldn’t live without?
I know what it’s like to be without. So I take extreme pleasure in teaching whatever I learn. Encouraging others to pick up tools for the first time and follow their own dreams is what this blog has become about.
You’ll also hear a few off topic inspiring reads, do a little sightseeing through my travels, and any other real life happenings that come along the way. Real life… as it happens.
Thank-you for your visit! Let’s junk!
