My Beautiful White Trash (Treasures)

Remember the pics of the old Singer Sewing cabinet I scored at
a yard sale a few weeks ago.. Well, here are the pics again and
then go down and see pics of how I upcycled it to fit my decor:

It was painted a dark reddish brown anyway. If not,I would maybe not have
white trashed it up. I don't strip unless I have to..I used to strip...ha
I worked at a antique furniture finishing store called 'The Magic Stripper'
in Navasota, Texas a long long time ago..That was when I was young and
stoopid.. and thought I'd love learning how to do this stuff. It was the
hardest work I ever did. I did learn a lot though!

New Blog update and What's going on with 'ning'

Well, just another reason to make some changes. I have decided to
shut down my creative network site on ning- junkartqueens.ning
They announced that in July they would phase out free ning sites.
I have not had time to really update with new videos or groups or
classes to keep people motivated, so this was a push for me to make
a change.
I loved building the site and trying to keep it looking neat, but
I spent too much time doing that. I have been told by some members
that they found ning sites hard to navigate. So I am keeping it simple.

The videos are still on my host site at To view the free
art videos you can click here
To continue to view the art videos that were paid for, you can email me to get
the link to the video file on blip, and you'll get a password.

The videos on blip are nice to view, bigger screen, and no problem clicking
to full screen. You can subscribe to my blip site, or to this blog site as well.

Here's to spending time being more creative and sharing with everyone!
Less sites to maintain.

I have lots of ideas to share and now more time to do them. Whether it's a
junk to jewel, trash to treasure, mixed media, watercolors, folk art,
impressionist art, pencil sketching, paper art, scrapper art, junk art
makeovers, yard sale recycles, the sky is the limit.
