Last Night we started back Funky Junky Chicks Craft Night, after our Christmas break.
We made the Burlap door hangers.
We had many designs and they all come up with their own ideas.
I love that part of it, I enjoy watching everyone take our idea and run with it.
Debbi went out of the box and made a washroom pair of pants that will say "Drop your drawers here".
Lots of fun, I enjoy these ladies.
My Joy!

I have to admit I have a problem.
I love linens.
I can't pass them up at a sale.
The rattan chair is full of white table cloths, the blue chair is full of vintage table cloths and if you look real hard, the buffet in the back ground, on top is just napkins.
I have a sickness.
Now to back them back into the drawers.
But if you need tablecloths, napkins or doilies, just let me know.

This one of the many reasons I love my job.
I had a customer bring these in today.
He bought these keys in a flea market in France, while he was in the Army.
I wish they could tell me what they opened,
Junkin Monday
Since it was MLK Day, only one thrift store in Oneonta was open,
So I am going to go another way today.
JOY is my word for the year.
So far it has been hard to find JOY.
But I am trying.
I really am.
I have placed the word around the house and the shop.
( thanks Barbara June for them)
Hoping that the reminder will help.
I am not unhappy.
I have JOY.
But  January is not a good month for me.
I think I suffer from alittle depression.
But I wont let it get me down.
I fight it all the way.
So Happy Tuesday and find JOY in something today.

Crafting Friday
Grandson got one of these cheap boxes of candy last year, I knew I could improve on it.
So, Using the pleated boarder I outlined the box and added  beading and the bling in the middle of the flower is a 80's earring.
Don't throw away those old ugly earrings, take them to Goodwill and I will buy them.
The perfect touch.
Happy Valentine

Trash to Treasure
I had these metal coasters for some time.
I knew they had potential.
I created a few Christmas ornaments this season.
This one was a easy one.
 All I needed was a old Christmas card, and few embellishments.
Oh and the" MUST HAVE TOOL",
 the crop a dile.
I haven't found any thing it won't punch a hole in, yet.
I think it turned out great.

Crafty Wednesday
Well, I have to admit, I made this during Christmas.
But it is so darn cute I had to show it.
I watch  My craft channel every morning,
and Heidi Swapp made one kinda, sorta like this one.
I mounted it on a cookbook stand  someone had at the shop.
It did take a few times to get the right glue. ( epoxy)
I love the bird cage and the pendents hanging off the egde.
Thanks Heidi.

Monday is my only day to go junking, since I am closed on Sunday and Monday.
Monday in our area is the day to clean off the shelves.
They throw away items that have been on the shelf for awhile.
And when I say throw, that is what I mean.
They throw glass, books, metal pots and pans, they throw it all into a buggy. Breaking glass and alot of noise.
I do not enjoy the noisy  Mondays at the Thrift store.
I only find a few things.
But on this trip I found this tiny, metal flower basket.
Isn't it lovely.

My JOY- Someone took my joy away. Maybe didn't take it away but it is hidden, lost, maybe deep down. Someone hurt my feelings on Monday, and I still can't forget. Why am I letting this bother me so much. It hurts and I can't let it go. Because it is that  someone  is close to me. I tried to rationalize it from what was  said in Sunday school. But in this case, I think they said it because it was true and I didn't ( don't) want to hear it. But he meant it, it was a fast response not to be the truth. And the Truth hurts.  So today I will take the time to pray for God to help me let it go. I want to find JOY in my everyday.

My word for the New Year is Joy!
I decided on this word last week, but had not told anyone.
At church on Sunday morning this question was ask.......
Can you be joyful and Happy?
And what is the difference?
I loved that this question had been ask and that I then knew I had chose the right word for me.
Think about it, what is your answer?
