My original intent when I started this blog was to provide instructions and photos for simple craft projects that I was working on. The fact is, I've been so busy experimenting with such a wide variety of projects that I haven't had much time to take pictures at various stages, let alone write down the directions. (I do have several photos of finished items).
So until I get motivated to do my own, I'm going to share some projects from some of my favorite bloggers; some I've tried and others that I still have gotten to yet.
Being a "thrifty"' crafter, I love dollar store projects. Another place to get cheap and interesting items is the clearance area of any of your local stores (e.g. Michaels, TJ Maxx, K-Mart, Dollar General, etc.). I am always looking for unusual ways to use usual items.
So, today's item is this large mirror piece, made from 9 smaller mirrors purchased at a dollar store, this one that I can't wait to try.

Here's the link to the tutorial and a list of the material needed:
- 9 framed mirrors
- Duct tape
- Piece of black foam core board
- Ribbon or picture-hanging wire
- Craft glue
- Hot glue & glue gun
So if any of you get inspired to make this before I do, please post your pictures and tell us all about it.
