Happy St. Patricks Day! We made it to Friday, and I’m sick 🙁 I might have pushed my body a little hard this week, but that’s ok, I always say I’ll rest when I’m dead.
People always ask where the inspiration for my crafts come from. The mind of an artist is an intriguing thing; my mind works differently than most. I realized that at a young age when I started taking apart simple household items like curling irons and cassette tapes, just to see how they work. This weeks project came to me while I was thrift shopping. I’m not the thriftiest girl, but I do find tons of inspiration while visiting thrift stores and this time was no different.
I ran across a rack of old denim and knew there had to be a cool craft I could use them for. I purchased a pair then headed to the art store where this idea popped into my head.
This craft is crazy simple the kids can even join in on the fun.
