Here we are on DAY #6 of this month long hop hosted by
The full blog roll is on my side bar where it shall remain all month long.
Details of prizes, rules etc can be found HERE.
Today I have my 6th calender page for you.
 The picture below is truer to colour than the full page one above.
The stamps are from third coast....
rather cute but glitter dragon likes it!
Simple stamping, coloured with ink, alcohol markers and pencils.
 Today we have a new challenge for you at HDH MACABRE MONDAY.
USE WOOD IN YOUR PROJECT... trees...lolly sticks...... wood grain paper...real wood...
whatever floats your boat.
I have had this charity shop find stashed away forever.....
 ....just waiting to be revamped into something much darker and more beautiful....
 ...well that time is here....
 I painted it matte black. I had some hallowe'en papers in my stash that cried out to be stamped all over...
so i did just that, then covered the desk caddy with them.... i sanded the edges... painted them and inked them ,then distressed them to hell and back...
the desk caddy now has a well worn, well love shabby look about it.
You have two weeks to join us at HDH and use wood in your doesnt have to be a HALLOWE'EN project.... but what could be better?
I shall enter this caddy into the challenge at RE-CYCLE, RE-PURPOSE AND RE-INVENT...
So please to see it back up and running.
Thanks for stopping by today....
see you tomorrow for DAY#7 of the 31 days of Hallowe'en.


  1. Good Morning BD, I love your spooky project, another brilliant day for your Halloween calender. I really do love and admire your wooden project-I really must try this technique, I'm off to find a 'how to'.

  2. Haha that kitty looks like it put a whisker in a power socket!! I can't believe how awesome that altered and updated pencil caddy!! It looks amazing, and makes me want to go op-shopping!!

  3. Hi BD, wow loving your wood project amazing. Love the calender to great images.

    Hugs Erin xx

  4. The calendar page is wonderful and the wood project is awesome! Great coloring on the page! Fab job!

  5. Gotta say Glitter Dragon is right about those stamps. ADORABLE! (in a creepy way, of course so don't go tossin' 'em, BD) FAbulous page and that desk organizer is AMAZING! What a transformation! Love the stamping on the text. xxD

  6. Great Halloween calendar page and I LOVE that desk organizer! Great job! I gotta say, I'm totally inspired to look at garage sale and thrift store finds in a completely different way now!

  7. What a dramatic makeover to Pooh's box!
    He is back in the 100 acre wood quaking in his fur!
    I believe the calendar needs cute pages too. Her legs have sort of a pogo stick quality.

  8. Fab calendar page, love those images! I haven't been over to third coast in a while will have to make a stop.
    Your desk caddy is so AWESOME, I love the papers and stamps you have used.

  9. Love your calendar page! Wonderful work on your wooden project.....but you covered up my favourite bear Poo! LOL

    Thanks much!~kim

  13. Love the cat in the Day 6-that is too funny. That's a great page and I see the blue background more than in the first pic. Love what you did with the letter box. Much better than how you bought it (or got it)

  23. So glad for the second pic. Colors do show better to show off your fabolicious talent. She is awesome and I want her cat! Arg, I keep missing the deadlines. Maybe need a week in the dungeon myself to come up with an outstanding project like your altered piece. Wonderful paper.

  24. The Pooh-organiser is something I would walk past in a hurry, but this transformed organiser.... WOW! Who would not want that on her desk? You are a real recycle queen! (eh, recycle dragon of course, sorry!)

  25. Wow this is so much better than a Pooh organiser - love it

  26. Hi Lyn, You already know how fantastic I think you are so will just add that I really love this. You have an terrific eye for finding the most unusual and unloved pieces and turning them into the most amazing works of art. The transition between the before and after are almost unbelievable. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous piece in our first challenge on Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent. Glad to have you back playing in our challenges as well and hope you will come back and play often.
