the joy of...........

I get home today, open up my email and I get the sweetest comment from Joy. She loves my blog! (blushing)
I click on her blog to check in and I am loving what I see. I already had her in my future feature file, so it was an easy pick today! EASY PEASY! She totally deserves some Creative Blog Love. It always helps to schmooze me.......... :)

Joy is the queen of finding the best junk. Look at all this stuff. I admire people who can look at these treasures and then actually have a plan for them. I haven't gotten there yet. I'm good with furniture, and paper, but not junk..........yet.
These two creations she just did today. And she stayed in her jammies past 11am! Can you imagine? I've never done that, have you? he he he...........You can see all the junk parts on her blog.........first page. It's amazing really that she created these beauties..........not that she's not's because she IS talented and I would never have seen the connection between the materials........the mixing, the matching. You can find these in her shop. The Hope Jar.

Speaking of The Hope Jar........ She's got all kinds of stuff there for us creative decorating people. Very reasonable finds. Old buttons, vintage paper..........go go go.
Now this fine piece of furniture really caught my eye. Can you imagine having this in your own craft space? I would LOVE it! I would marry it. Just think of all the stuff you could store in there. And to have drink mixin's so close......... that room must be heaven.
Adorable clip boards..........wouldn't this be cute hung on the wall for notes and such? I also noticed these in her shop.
This is where Joy needs to throw me a bone. Look at that kitchen! Come on....... I need to see photos of the kitchen without all your loving family covering it up. Yes, yes, I know you love them, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind hanging out in the living room for a moment. There is also a photo of her children sporting their Halloween costumes on her blog and you can see just a glimpse of what looks like a fabulous hutch or something. It's creamy, distressed............she really needs to stop being selfish with her furniture.

When you get a chance.........after leaving me a comment of course.........go check out Joy's creations. I will never look at junk the same. Don't forget to show her some love........she's so sweet, we wouldn't want to hurt her feelings. :)

If you love Today's Creative Blog......I have a blinkie for you too. Just email me for the code so you can add it to your blog! You can see it to the right. The green and blue one.

What fun. I do admire people who can "see" the junk.

Oh Joy is truly a joy, alright!! She is truly talented and she does stuff that makes me think "Why didn't I think of that??!!" Because I'm not as Joy-ful as Joy is, that's why!! I've been a fan of hers for a while now and she is the perfect selection for Blog of the day!!

I love your writing style, by the way...!!!

Oh I love it and can't wait to check Joy and all her goodies out!
I am going to add my blinkie soon too - I promise! Also, since I have taken so long with your banner do you want a Christmas themed one instead???

Joy is great, my heart skipped a beat too when I saw those goodies. Way before you did, on her blog. If I had Creative Blogs I would've picked her too.


Tiffany said...

And all that great junk! wish I was that creative too.

Some people just have it

I'm not so great at seeing what something "could be". So I love to watch other people do it. She's great.
