Hi all!

I honestly don’t even know what I did with myself this week. I started 2 posts which didn’t get completed…

Oh wait. Yes. I started designing Christmas stencils. And those days always lead to, “Oh, I’ll just spend a couple hours…” and end up staying up late into the night forgetting everything else. Tis the season! So know? Some cool and fun stuff is coming! I can’t wait to crack out the paint and get some projects done up!

But I did do a very unexpected and cool project right before I buried myself into computerworld… thank goodness, huh?!

A crate I had in my stash got morphed into a hummingbird feeder heater since we got it with a big storm. I felt sorry for the little guys trying to eat while spinning away on that thing! This sure helped. It cuts the wind and helps to keep their nectar toasty warm! Yay for that

So… ready to see what everyone else has been busy creating? Here’s some pretty unique up-cycled projects from last week’s party…

  1. Donna,
    You always give such sweet comments! I appreciate you so much.
    It is SUCH an honor to be part of the feature. I truly love hanging out each week. Thank you so much for hosting and encouraging us. You are the best 🙂

  2. thank you so much for including my re-repurposed salvaged industrial fan project, Donna! (i had a feeling it would appeal to you!) i think it has found a permanent use… but then again, around here you just never know… wishing you a happy MAHALO-ween (or HULA-ween) my friend!

    and oh MY those darling tennis racket pumpkins that Lisa made just speak to my lil’ pumpkin-loving heart!

  3. Thanks so much for the feature Donna! I’m in awe of your hummingbird feeder. Of course I’m all for helping out our little bird friends :).

  4. Yes, the sugarplum ideas are definitely starting to twirl in my head! Started a list so I can remember them all! Can’t wait to see what great new projects you come up with, Donna!

  5. Woot woot, did you say new Christmas stencils? I’ve been playing with some of your stencils this week and having a blast. But I discovered I am not as skilled as you with paint roller stenciling. LOL Have a great weekend, Donna!

  6. Thanks so much for sharing my Snowman on parade Donna!
    OK, the tennis racket pumpkins! Old tennis rackets will now be in my radar. So cute!
