This project is a little cross between a wooden box and a trinket tray. It's a simple project but makes for a very handy organizer that can be utilized for everyday use or for entertaining. My grandfather and I put this together in his shop and it made for a fun little bonding experience. Grab a few materials and get started!
My family loves to do puzzles. I love to do the border of the puzzle and then sucker my family into finishing the rest of it for me. Seeing the finished product always feels great, and I have found a love for preserving the puzzles. Here is how to turn a puzzle into a piece of artwork for your home or office.
Several years ago, on a trip back to visit Maine, I was introduced to the sport that is sea glass picking. It's the perfect excuse to grab some friends and head out for a little fresh air and sea admiration. We headed out into Jonesboro, ME into the "mucky muck" to find some special goods. The pieces I picked might not have been your standard jewelry grade, but I still was able to turn my treasures into a rad wrap bangle. As the saying goes, "One man's trash is another's treasure."When I first started college, I began at the University of Maine at Machias. I loved Maine and made amazing memories with great people up there. It will always have a place in my heart, and I'm thankful that I did get to spend two years there. DownEast Maine was where I truly picked up on Artisan jewelry. I had a lot of fun making this bracelet and love what a conversation starter it is.
