Giving ordinary objects an extraordinary new life!

FELT SCRAPS BROUGHT A STORYBOOK TO LIFE

A CARPET REMNANT WAS UNEARTHED
TO CREATE DINOSAUR WALL ART
Michell from "Girl in Air" found inspiration in a Pottery Barn Piece and created  her own without spending a dime!

SOME PEELING PAINT INSPIRED A FAIRYTALE
ENDING FOR A NURSERY WALL

  5. Your featured projects are absolutely amazing. What a group of crafty moms. I love them all.

    I redid my son's bedroom to Disney Cars meets Nascar theme past weekend, but it's nowhere near as amazing as the mural or the dinosaur art.
