Exciting News | Woman's World Magazine Feature

Thursday, February 25, 2016

I'm featured in this week's issue of Woman's World Magazine!! Yep, it's true! You may have already gotten the down-low on this exciting news if you follow me over on Facebook -- that's where all my exciting news and project sneak peeks happen first -- and, if not, go and like The Creative Glow over on Facebook!

This all came about from an email from on of the editors, back before Christmas, letting me know that they were interesting in featuring my Blooming Flower Mirror made with plastic spoons in an issue of their magazine. After I asked a few questions and then answered a few questions I agreed to it, and now here it is! Yay! I'm pretty excited about it! And they're going to be featuring another one of my projects, Hot Glue Decorated Mirrors, in their April 4th issue, as well!!

DIY Cookbook & Tablet Stand - Copper & Wood

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

A couple weeks ago I posted my DIY Inspirations for this project and now I bring you my version - DIY Cookbook and Tablet Stand. As I mentioned in the last post, I really like the look of the copper pipe so I knew from the start that I wanted to do something using that also. My favourite was the stand created by I Spy DIY (see the DIY Inspirations post), so I set out to design one similar to that with my own spin put on it, of course! Let's take a look.
