The Craft Junkie

Oh boy.........what a pleasure it is to feature Monica from The Craft Junkie........I met her from this blog........and then she adopted one of Mabie's Sisters! (From Mt. Park Labradoodles of course) This is Shyla.She also lives in my general area, so hopefully we can get the pups together someday.


Monica has taken recycling to a whole new level. Using pop cans! Even though she's in Oregon where we have the bottle bill (great recycling program for soda cans and bottles) she has decided to use them differently. Like how about some "POP" art.


You will forever look at pop cans a little differently.........I can just see her not buying what her family likes to drink, but what she needs for the latest art project.
Why stop with wall art? Why not make a purse? Creative isn't it? (psst.......you can buy this stuff on her Etsy)

She also makes these amazing necklaces.
What I love the most is this Valentines Day card she designed. See that hand? She made that.......and guess what? There's a TUTORIAL on her blog.

Genius isn't she?

So if you need a little bit of an ART fix with a Puppy fix......Monica's blog is the one to visit.

Don't forget to let her know how you found her. :)

Sara from Sara's Art House.........a past feature..........is having a give away.
