First 2010 Something from Nothing

Here was a box presented to me from my fellow Chartreuseandco.com pal, Donna.  Now you may not know that "something from nothing" is my favorite deal, but it is.  It makes me excited to not only create but know that this little pile of leftover wood would have been a burn pile to another. Oh no, no to me.


So....
Box 'o wood + creative juices + valentine dreams = THIS!



Your very own "Be Mine" forever love letter for your sweetheart. 
Even my 6'4" son loved these.  A perfect little gift for you to let someone know that they will
forever "bee" in your heart.

The sizes varies and each bee was hand painted by me doing it's own little dance of love.  I hand painted, sanded and distressed each "envelope" and tied a rafia bow with a hand glittered vintage graphically designed card reading "Be Mine".

I was also inspired to create some mini art pieces...bee inspired of course.

 "Fly"


"Soar"


"Seek Love"
All items will be in my shop for this next sale.  If you are interested in one just send me a note and I can give you the details and post to my Etsy account for a special order.

Keep coming back for my next edition of...Something from Nothing!

Oh and my bee obsession?  I have no idea.  Something about their fuzzy bodies and wings and buzzing and honey and and and...
 Lots of wood left still, hmmmmmmm...

  3. I don't think that there is anything more satisfying than seeing the possibilities in "scrap" and turning it into something beautiful. I look forward to more of your 'Something from Nothing' posts. KUDOS! :)

  11. Ahhh I love a box of "junk" that I can then take and make treasures out of. You are a woman after my own heart. :)
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I love your blog and might have to make a sale sometime. I used to live in Martinsburg, WV and attended Shepherd College so you are just right down the road a bit.
