November DT Projects

Hello everyone! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and show you my November projects.

My name is Leslie Owens and I have been crafting in some form or another for over 20 years! My sister taught me how to crochet when I was a teenager and then I learned to cross stitch. I then started working with wood tole painting and then I found my passion-scrapbooking and paper crafting. I am so honored to be on the MB's Treasurista Design Team! Thank you Misty for this wonderful opportunity!

So on to my projects....

The first project is some altered wood letters that spell out DREAM. I just love this phrase as it reminds me to never give up on your dreams. My scraproom is pink and green so I wanted something to match my room.

I used several of the products from the store including the pink 1" crystals,white lace w/light pink pleated trim,clear acrylic wheat sprays,light pink Chinese braid trim,pink acrylic flower sprays,white braided sequin trim, and pink acrylic butterfly stem.

I love how the project just came together beautifully with all of the gorgeous products from the store.

For my second project I altered one of the Michael's balsa wood boxes. I wanted to go with the blue and brown color scheme. The title of the box is Life's Little Treasures and that is Misty's slogan for the shop. I thought it would be a wonderful project to send to her.

For this one I used the brown Chinese braid trim, the blue acrylic flower sprays,brown and white baker's twine, and the light blue crystal diamonds, plus some other miscellaneous trims and flowers from my stash.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects and I cannot wait to show you my December ones!!
