LESSology Challenge #22 - How Charming!




to use charm on your project....

and my upcycle item is this wooden box from Ikea, it used to be the home of those cute little pegs


after a coat of acrylic paint, and the fun begins...


I used an old photo of me, my brother and grandma...



while I was digging through my stash to find things to recycle, I found this tiny key charm, can't even remember when I bought it from


a lot of beads and sequins are left overs from my crazy quilt project, everything is so tiny, it feels like playing doll house once again....



the tiny heart is a total accident.... it was a piece of a negative from my die cut, I tried to play with ink and Utee, and the result is awesome!


now here's another charm....




one more treasure to add.... I found a super old drawer with scrabble tiles at The Brooklyn Flea last year (oh ya, I supposed to post those picture, oh well), it cost me only 5 bucks






I hope you pop over to LESSology and join in the fun

The prize for this challenge is


a $20 gift certificate to Elle's Studio sponsored by our super cool team mate Julie Tucker-Wolek
