  1. What a busy and creative year you have had!

  2. I agree with Linda--you have had a great year. So many good ideas, Joy. And you share so generously. Happy New Year, and wishing the creative fairy dust continues to sprinkle in your hair!

  3. I love all your creative, repurposed projects and using that dovetailed piece of wood in your wreath is genius! Happy New Year!

  4. I absolutely love the wooden craft side/sign. I'm gushing over the aged water stain. Just perfect for that wreath!

  5. Dare I say I think you're also turning into a stencilaholic? Welcome to the club! :D

    Your past year has had you busy Joy! Thank-you for always sharing what you're up to. Your projects are beautiful and so inspiring! (now I feel like painting...)

  6. I am seriously loving all of your beautiful stencil projects. I think I've seen them all except the sweet little stool! Love the color! It has me dreaming of much warmer days. Happy New Year and I can't wait to see what you come up with in 2018!!

  7. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog (from FarSide's) and reading away--wow! I usually answer directly but your comment didn't come through to my email via blogger. Does that for some reason with a few folks. I signed up and will be getting your posts now, too. I've always admired people who can refinish furniture--something I've never tried, myself. Transforming! Look forward to getting to know you. soulcomfort/Rita :)
