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.
Curb side 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.
Today, blogging is my full time career. Wow. I was able to dump my career I no longer loved, and instead, pressed forward with what spoke to me most.
I now share my love of decorating with junk on the blog, have now fired up a line of Funky Junk’s Old Sign Stencils (due to reader requests), share sole women travel tips at my fav safe places, inspire you on beautiful bike trail rides, and more!
Who knew that scrummaging along the side of the road could become a life-style 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 on the blog, through social media, speaking engagements and workshops. Encouraging others to pick up tools for the first time and follow their own dreams is what this blog has become about.
I’m so glad you’re here! Welcome! And… let’s junk!
