What is ART?

Art to me is anything I do that requires creativity.

Rug Hooking
Cross Stitch
Vinyl Cutting
Greeting Cards

All of the above is what I love to do.  But, those are the obvious artsy crafty things.  Now on to the not so obvious things.

Organizing my home
Decorating my home
Thrifting for things that I can make other things from
Refinishing furniture
Collecting recipes

Not so obvious things

 This is IKEA cart.  I have a very small bathroom!  I'm talking one-Butt bathroom!  So, I needed something to hold my bottles and meds.  Here's my solution.  I love the color so I went to Sherwin Williams to get paint sample cards to take with me when I shop.  Oh No!  Now every thing in my house will go Turquoise!
I Love GOODWILL!...or any thrift store will do.  

This is my attempt at organizing my kitchen.  I needed my pantry to hold my sugar, flour, sugar and yeast for Baking,  The containers I bought at Goodwill for $4.00 ea.
This is the back of my Pantry door.  I found this narrow rack at Goodwill for $2.00.  If your keeping track, I'm up to $14.00.  The door is very narrow so I looked for this for a long time.

Overflow of Coffee and Tea in my small Kitchen.
I found this perfect small cabinet at Goodwill for $8.00.  It holds all of my coffee and tea. It sits right out side my kitchen door.
