Celebrate Spring Series - How to make an upcycled dressform +video




Well here it is folks, WEDNESDAY! I thought I had this scheduled on Monday, but truth is, I've been out with the flu, and well, it affected my brain! But in this case better late than never.

The UPS man has delivered his share of stuff in boxes to the Peterson household and being the upcycler, repurposer and for all intents and purposes, though I deny it with the greatest of all denials, a craft hoarder, I turn to my stash to find cheap materials in which to repurpose into divine art.......

If you're a Tightwad, you won't want to miss this! ROAD TRIP!


I can't tell you how long it has been since I've had no contact what-so-ever with anyone other than the people I was presently with.  I spent the weekend with no internet and no cell service, tucked down into a hollar where the river roared and the trout were biting.  IT WAS WONDERFUL!

Throwback Thursday - Circa 2005 Carol Duvall Show - Moose Pen Part 1


So you want to make a moose pen? Well, let me help you do that!  Here's a Throwback Thursday special as one of my last tapings (so sad!) of the Carol Duvall Show just before HGTV took the programming off the air.

This is the episode, that just before going live on camera, Carol looked at me, put her hand on top of mine - (because literally, this was the last day of taping, the last segment, the last show of the season and the last show forever taped) - and she said with a warm smile - "Linda, when one door closes, another one will open".   I will always remember those words even though sometimes the doors have been a little rusty to open...they do open!


There's a sweet story about how these pens all came about and you can read about it here.
Thanks for watching!
