My spool art to be in Greencraft Magazine, and here is my latest upcycle project...

I was notified recently that some of my spools will be featured in the August issue of GreenCraft Magazine, a Stampington publication. (Those spools are not pictured here). Of course, I do realize that something else could get priority, and mine could get pushed forward to another issue, but I'm happy they think it worthy....

Here's my latest upcycle - You've seen the pedestal plates made by bonding a plate to a candleholder? Well, here are some unique pedestal jars I made by bonding a glass base (candleholder) to vintage jars.

Dear M....

I have to tell you again how much I love your spools. They are soo worthy of being published. I'm so proud of you.

Now...before you could tell me not to, :), I did a post on the fabulous litte R present you sent me. I'm beyond words...truly I am. I love that little purse/compact/note carrier, calling card thingy, more than I can say. I hope you'll find time to visit my post. It all about you and your gracious, loving gift to me.

You are truly a real friend. I'll always remember that you were one of a handful of gals who believed in my work and that is what GOT me into RH Magazine.

Blessing to you and thank you with all my heart. I LOVE IT...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

Love you~Rebecca
