Love the unexpected!

Picture Plaques

Would you believe that this gorgeous decoration was created from DRAWER FRONTS??


Jen from Craftomaniac created this adorable decoration (well, its actually plural but I love it as a set…) from the drawer fronts of a baby changing table!

I have been following Jen’s blog for a year now, and she always does the unexpected and Makes it Happen.  Her upbeat attitude and out of the box creativity get you pumped up for crafting!  Reading her posts are like being cheered on by an aerobics a crafting instructor.  Or a great DJ.

Thrifty but Fancy Hurricane Candle Votives

Chelsea at Two Twenty One crafted these simple and simply beautiful Hurricane vase candle-holders.  I priced this out here in PA and going to either the dollar store or picking pieces up at Goodwill you will NOT have to go over $10 to make these elegant table decorations (except for the glue – but since you are a crafter, you probably have the glue used for this project, right?).  She made these last winter, but I had pinned them waiting for fall to come around again, because I think the peas are a perfect compliment to fall colors!

Chelsea showcases these as a centerpiece, but in my house I would have them on my sofa table, unless it was a holiday.  Because these vases/candle-holders are just too gorgeous to use only for special occasions.  Don’t you agree?
