Another fabulous template and Goodwill!

Linda, the owner of "In the Making Designs" released yet another fabulous set of four digi templates this week! She never disappoints! Click here to take a peek. I used Echo Park's "Little Girl" paper pack, which is a must for any moms of girly-girls! I also lurve the new baker's twine from Splendid Fiins. She has it here by itself  and then here wrapped around journaling cards. I just love this new trend and am so excited that Nisa has created digital versions for us!

Ok, yesterday I shopped for the first time at a Goodwill store. Oh my goodness--who knew there would be so many fabulous things for me to spray-paint and upcycle?? I picked up all of the goodies in this picture for $21! (My husband is so excited to have more of my junk in the garage.) I have big plans for those craptastic wooden sconces ($1.99 ea)...I'm thinking distressed turquoise with some bling. There are also two jewelry boxes ($1.99 ea) that are in bad taste, but in good shape as far as the felt on the inside. The chair ($4.99) is going to receive a new coat of mint green paint to go in Kendall's room and the silver plates (1.99 and .99 ea) will become cake stands with the addition of some candlesticks. I may have to open an etsy store!

Please tell me that this wasn't your first trip to a thrift store! If I had half your motivation I would be renting garages all over town to keep up with my thrift store purchases. I pass by cute stuff ALL the time because I know I won't have the motivation to pick up a can of spray paint like you do. Sigh. I'm so impressed, Erin. You work do you do it?!? What did you decide to do with that cute window you posted the other day?
