New Items in our Shop

Yes, yes, yes, we're finally listing items in our shop again! No more keeping everything for ourselves. We've decided to share.

It's a bit time consuming to list items so our goal is to add at least 5 new items a day. So keep checking back.

Items you can expect to find in the upcoming days include more downloadable background pages, cards, dog collars, upcycled knick knacks for your home, crochet rag rugs, and some gorgeous glass beads my sister has been making.


And yes, we still have cards listed in our old shop. We'll be moving those to our new shop as time permits, but you can still purchase them from Colour Me Happy.

Calling All Artsy Fartsy Types

I'm finally listing some of my background pages on Etsy. And I thought it would be fun to use your creations as part of my advertising. So what do you say? Are you in?

Great! Here's what you'll need to do...

  1. Right click on one (or more) of the backgrounds below
  2. Select Save Image As
  3. Change the file name or location (if desired)
  4. Click Save
  5. Now, use the background in any way you'd like

After you've created something you like, email it to me at UpcycleThis@gmail.com so I can use it in my advertising. No pressure, but the sooner the better! :)








Shelves in Master Bedroom

I hung up some shelves and re-potted some plants over the weekend. I'm very happy with the end result.


Sorry the photo is so dark, but all I had handy was my phone.

91 Magazine

I absolutely love this online magazine. And if you're anything like me, I'm sure you will too. Issues 1-7, and the special craft issue are all free to read online (I've posted links to each of them below). But for some reason Blogger and I weren't seeing eye to eye today so they aren't listed in order of publication date.


Issue 5  /  Issue 6  /  Issue 7  /  Craft Issue
Issue 1  /  Issue 2  /  Issue 3  /  Issue 4

Starting with issue 8 they will charge $2.00 an issue to read, or $7.00 for a 1 year subscription. Here's the link if you'd like to subscribe or purchase issue 8, which recently came out.

I hope you enjoyed these issues as much as I did. And if you know of any magazines you think I'd like, please let me know. Thanks in advance!


Treasury Tuesday - April Showers

I'm sure we've all heard the saying 'April showers bring May flowers' - but does anyone know how to get rid of this wind? Well while you ponder that, here are some Etsy finds that remind me of the 'April showers...' saying. Enjoy!
