Time to begin again...

I have had this blog for quite some time.  However, I let it go and didn't post anything for quite sometime.  So much time that all the pictures were long gone.  So, I am going to attempt to get this thing going again.  I am beginning to make things again.  I have had a rough few years, but God has brought me through.  I'm ready to be me again.  I'm ready to move forward, to create, to dream, to do, and to be who God made me to be.  So here we go again, Petal Picking Designs.....lets see what I can create. God has blessed me with some talent and I need to use it to glorify Him.  I'll share my creations, ask for advice, give tips and (hopefully) helpful hints, try and sell a few things, and have fun while doing it all.

So what have I been up to lately?  Here's a couple things I have done the past couple of weeks.  I am having a lot of fun playing with my saw and creating a few things to sell.  My "Grandma Green" tool box is so fun and cute.  Perfect for a table decoration, carry all, tool box, or hang it upside down and you have a shelf and towel bar!  So many fun things you can do with this fun box.  I plan on making more and in different colors, my "Grandma Green" was the first can of paint I grabbed.

Next is a 12x12 tray.  This was a learning experience for sure!  I don't have the "right" tools to make a tongue and groove joint, but I made it work anyway.  This cutie is distressed with an espresso finish.  If you know me, you know I love my coffee so I was excited to find that little can of stain.  It is completed with rope handles.  This little guy can be used as a tray, hang on the wall for a shelf, coffee table box, and more.  I feel in love with this piece as I was making it.  My sweet son actually cut some of the pieces; his first time using a power saw and a palm sander.  I was having a proud mommy moment....

More projects to come I'm sure.  I am in the middle of a dresser redo at the moment that I can't wait to finish tomorrow.  I'll share soon!

I am Him~Powered, I CAN do ALL things through Christ, for HE gives me strength. Phil 4:13
