Gosh, Keren and I go way back here in blogland to maybe 2009/2010!? Back then many of us weren’t on other forms of social media and it was all about our blogs. I love seeing that in 2014, Keren and I are still at it, making things pretty and sharing about it all! It was sweet Keren who introduced me to the magic of using a paper punch!!! For that I will be forever appreciative!

Back in 2008 I started my blog Tinkered Treasures and like many bloggers, the support I received from special online friends really gave me the confidence to pursue many ideas and dreams which lead to my first book named for my blog, and it’s follow-up (or “baby sister” as I call it) Seaside Tinkered Treasures. Many of the projects in both of my books use recycled materials, and “tinkering” requires no specialist tools, equipment or techniques—anyone can do it! As well as the 35 projects, there are “Fancy This” alternatives for many of the items, substituting different materials or changing the colors for a different look.
