Mini-framed Postage Stamp

Last month, I received some used postage stamps from a couple of Swap-bot members who granted my wish for stamps. As I was sorting them out, this particular stamp caught my attention. It was a vintage stamp (1960) and it has an inspiring saying (a creed, I think) on it.

"Fear to do ill and you need fear nought else!" by Benjamin Franklin

I love crafting with used postage stamps! I am planning to make a collage of my favorite stamps and frame them. Looking for frames in thrift stores has also been my interest lately. Even slightly damaged frames or those without glasses in bargain bins. Who knows, I can use them in some future projects. :) Anyway, I got this mini frame (2" by 3.5") for quite some time now. I just thought of putting the stamp on it and see how it would look. And well, it looked great!

Bohemian Inspired!

Recently, I find myself busy surfing the net about things in Bohemian style and I am really liking it! Fashion wise, right now, I am only into wearing bracelets the boho way... the multiple mix bracelets. I am also changing the theme of our house decors into bohemian style! Last week, I looked for bright and colorful throw pillow covers in a thrift store. After washing them, I changed our curtains and throw covers. I have a mix orange colors curtain which I use during fall/halloween. The throws are now in Fuchsias, Orange, Lime and Aquas. It was a big change in colors. Before we were having Browns and creams.

Anyway, I also searched for craft ideas and so far, I have created two projects already.

Yesterday, I made my first ever dreamcatcher!

I also updated the look of our key holder rack.



I am now busy making paper beads to make a beaded curtain for our porch and I am planning a project which I will be needing a lot of assorted sizes and colors of glass beads. I'm excited to start on that! :)
