Day 2 Creative Challenge – Give something a new life

photo-6We can all look around and find something that needs a new breath of life breathed into it. Whether it’s just giving something a fresh coat of paint, or giving something a completely different identity. Recently I went shopping for a large vase for a giant orange gerber daisy I wanted to brighten up my space. Not finding anything under $60 I decided to make my own. I pulled a mailing tube out of the dumpster and wrapped it in twine securing it with a glue gun. I put rocks in the bottoms to give it some weight, and I now have a new homemade vase.

What things can you give new life to? Add a fresh coat of paint, find a new function for it (I love Pinterest for this), or turn it into something else entirely.


About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
