Don't forget about the giveaway!

Have you ever set down to do some great art piece & not know where to start? I have always wanted to do something with nails & a hammer on my canvas, just wasn't sure how to accomplish that! So I started on a collage over a week ago & didn't finish it & started on another project. Well this weekend I pulled out the unfinished collage & thought what can I do that is different than my norm. So I got out the hammer & nails & came up with this fun little house. And no house is a house without a key, so I added a key. I like the way this little piece turned out, hope you do too! Let me know what you think ????????????? The little piece of measuring ruler was found @ my hubby's grandparent's lake cabin. Thought that it would do well on this collage. I have been very busy this weekend. I have done several fun pieces. One that I have done is for my friend's daughter's graduation. It is just a small little wooden star on a dowel rod. But it did turn out really cute. The B is for my friend's daughter's name. It has several tags attached, a charm that states journey & some ribbons & yarns. The back also has fairy dust sprinkled on it to give it a shimmery look.

I'm working on 2 more sets of wooden blocks, almost done. I have sold the set of "roaring 20's" & the "bird" set. But I have put 2 more sets of blocks on etsy. Hope to have the other blocks on etsy tomorrow night.

I want to say thank you to all my blog friends for visiting my site. I appreciated each of you. I hope you all will participate in the GIVEAWAY. Just go to the post prior to this one. It is dated May 16th, I am featuring Lisa's blog & a giveaway. I hope you all have a great week. Just think a 3 day weekend is coming. Yippee! Hugs to all my blog friends***Renea

PS--never thought I would be so in love with your blogspots! I love to visit you all!!!
