There Is A Reason I'm Called A Pack Rat....

....I always see the hidden possibilities in just about everything. So I bring that thing home and then it sits and accumulates and then gets packed away into bins. I call these my "someday projects". Do you have things like that? 

Well the other day I was staring at these drawer knobs that I saved from an old dresser and were sitting on one of my worktables. 
I remembered that I thought they were perfect for little pedestals so I got out the paper clay and started in. The feeling of happiness that exploded out of me for using something I saved and being creative with it was just amazing! 
 Not much to see yet but just wait until I paint it! 

I've grown so much artistically in the last year and have gained so much confidence that I vow to actually do something with all those pack rat saved "someday" things. Here's one I can't wait to get my hands on!
Do you see the possibilities? I have 2 different ideas for this so will have to see which idea will win. Is anyone else out there a pack rat like me?

What a clever idea! I have a lot of 'someday' crafts, I just have to make sure they don't get out of control.

Oh honey! I have a who studio full of someday projects! I keep accumulating and then purging and then accumulating again. It's madness really! Glad to see one of us is finally using up some of it!

I am such a pack rat that I can barely move in my own bedroom! I'm trying to use up SOMETHING to justify squirreling away all that stuff. Can't wait to see the knob dude finished. :) xo
