Remember this giveaway from One Creative Queen? It was a total suprise; not even Katherine remembered what she had packaged a year ago that didn't get used as a gift. Well, I was the lucky recipient and so here's what the surprise was.
Taaadaaa..... it was a neat blue bracelet. Check out the cool charms on the closure. I love it! I'm so lucky. Thanks again, Katherine.

In the spirit of "Being Creative Each Day", I'm showing you 2 items I have been altering these past few days.
This is a ceramic vase from Ikea about a year ago which I wasn't using much. I will now use it for my new cubicle at work. The black scrolls are a big rub on and I glued a flower trim at the top.

This was a plain pine wood frame that I covered with wallpaper and a sticker I embellish with some frilly yarn.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative 2009!

Happy New Year! Your bracelet is GORGEOUS! I love the shape and color of the beads. Also love your altered vase! I need to make something like that for my cubicle too. Your altered picture frame is gorgeous too. Is that flocked wallpaper? I've bought some vintage flocked wallpaper from Donna at undertheredroof and it's too pretty to use! I covet it. :)

Your vase and frame are beautiful. Thanks for the comment on my blog. Sorry it took so long to get back to you. The Digital photo program I use is Microsoft Digital Image Pro. It will do almost anything Photoshop does but I found the learning curve much simpler. I've tried them all and I have stuck with this one.
