Well.....hey there!!!...Are you ready to enjoy another FUNFUNFUN All Things Altered Blog Hop?

Sooooo...this is what I started with...a little wooden carry-all, that has been in my stash for several years....an original from GW..I painted it shabbychic white and it stayed like that...BORING!
 I actually think it was for utensils, maybe...it measures 10"x8"x5".....and I took it from this:
tooooooooooooooooooooooo:
THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Using techniques I have gleened from stalking Christy Tomlinson of ScarletLime and
JulieFei-Fan Balzer of Balzer Designs ...and pulling out stuff from my stash, I decorated the "tote" with paints, stamps, inks, ribbons, rub-ons....some vintage yo-yo's from my ETSY shop StudioBeeCreations, along with one of my NEW to the shop BLOOMERS!!!!
How much FUN!!!!...I also rescued a plain jane clipboard and made it feel the love of  Everything ALtered, with more papers from ScarletLime...
............and the "secret weapon".....
Ya gotta loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ModPodge, and go read the fun blog of Amy Anderson...she's a HOOT!
*************************************
So.....this is my fun, new Carry-All....it will sit on my work table...hold some fun pens and pencils....and the clipboard ready for noties......
From here...you will go to the WONDERFULLY talented
Jennifer Priest of Hydrangea Hippo
Leave all the talented ladies some LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.....me too!
UPDATE:......From here go to Jessica Baker at
Going now to clean up the studio....note to self:....DO NOT try to sprinkle glitter with the FAN on!!!...I am glitterfied....and so is the cat!

Creative blessings,
Debbie
