Cork Wall Clock

Wine corks are one of those things that everyone seems to have a collection of but finding an attractive use for them is sometimes a challenge.  Here is an awesome idea I found on Pinterest that I couldn't find the directions to.  It's so easy and one of those ideas that took less than 1 hour, and will be a great addition to our kitchen, that is, after it serves as the perfect Valentine's gift for the hubster.

CHA Winter Show

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association World Fair) with my crafty-pal Marisa Lynch.  The show was inspiring as always, and I came away with a ton of ideas for my next segment on Marie, which is going to be on Valentine's Day crafts.  It's been freezing here, so I was trying to come up with an outfit that would be warm enough for the show floor, but not over-heat me so I went through the latest haul from my step-mother-in-law's (is that even a word?) North-east conservative  1980's stash to find something I could alter for the perfect crafty-lady look.
