Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Coffee Pot

I had lots of fun this month with my altered project for Altered Eclectics

This is what I started with 

I searched my stash for things to alter the coffee pot and create my lady.   I decided to alter an old peculator coffee pot.  I used wool for the hair, some old glasses, bottle caps and buttons for the eyes, Wicker plant pot for the hat and part of a couple of spoons for the ears.   I also used lace, buttons for earrings,and a plastic container for the base.  

Some closer looks

Hope you enjoyed my funky project.  Remember to visit our challenge blog to view the inspiring projects of our design team. Have a creative week. 

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

Rhedd's Creative Spirit - Anything Goes

  2. I agree. It is fabulous. You are the queen of mixed media.I remember these percolators that my mother used. For some reason it was fascinating to watch the little glass bubble top. I also remember cleaning the pot and the "guts" as my mother used to call it. Thank you, Keurig machine. Great project, Judy. [Bunny]
