1. One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure
I made a necklace out of a washer2. What Was I Thinking
I made a memo board for her to let others know what she was thinking
3. Button It
A picture frame from my collection of my grandma's buttons
4. Time Flies By--I made a paperbag calendar. Each one has a pocket on front and a pocket at the bottom to put notes and things in.
5. Not All That It Is Cracked Up To Be
I etched on front and back of three glass votives "Dream/butterfly, Grow/leaf, Inspire/cross" and them filled them with cracked glass.
6. All Blinged Up and No Place to Go
This was one of my favorites. It is an altered clipboard.
7. You're Such a Blockhead Charlie Brown!
A klennex box
8. Share and Share Alike
A recipe box with dividers in the same colors and feel of the klennex box
9. The Flowers of Tomorrow are in the Seeds of Yesterday
Flower pots with her apt number and a shaker.
10. Put Your Big Girl Panties On
This was a hard phrase for me to create something to go with it. I made the flowers and butterflies out of colored 'panty'hose
11. I Don't Need No Stinkin' Paper
My partner makes beautiful cards and uses trims and accents. So I filled one of these with ribbons and trims and the other with scented ink pads
12. GIBBERS Do It Old Tool Style
I did a play on words here and changed it to Old SPOOL style & made a ribbon holder to sit on her desk with some more pretty ribbons for her to use.

These are some of the children watching a memorial dance. Look at the condition of their clothing--they are no more than rags.
The villagers pulled Taylor into the dance. The look of pure happiness makes my heart grin. I know he is going to come back a changed man.
Here is a hut that they actually live in. Taylor says the children treat him like a celebrity
Breath taking beauty and such poverty at the same time.
I put this picture on my computer as the wallpaper to remind me how many things we take for granted, how many things we feel entitled to, and how truly blessed we are.

This first one shows the end of the road...note the current. The second one shows the golf course bridge. It is hard to see but there is a boat parked beside it and the railings of the bridge go right into the water. People are still golfing they just skip that first hole and are parking up by the highway.
This is the bridge to get to the campground. Lots of debris backed up.

Step 5: Put and Easter colored kiss, using a pop dot, as the center and add some of the leaves.
Step 6: Fill vases (I got mine at the dollar store) with spring colored M&Ms and insert flowers
Optional step: I made matchbook cards and clipped them to the vase.This was the inspiration for my project.
I gave these two my friends who were in the community play this year. It always amazes me how many flowers and gifts are given at the play.
Here you can see two tables filled. There were eight tables in all.
