As with my previous posts about the class I taught "Junk on My Trunk" I was so moved by this class, it inspired me, got my creative juices flowing and felt so good to have all these lovely ladies in my home. I just wanted to share some pictures of finished trunks from the class. I am hoping to teach it again, and if your interested in it, send me an email (theartlife@yahoo.com) and I can put you on an email list to let you know where and when I'll offer it again. The trunks pictured above are mine, Cindy McCool's, Deb Salgado, and Sharon Fletchers. Beautiful and yet so unique!

I'm off to CHA on Friday with Lora, and will take lots of pictures and post on Facebook alot, so follow along with Lora and I on our journey to CHA Winter 2012~!


  1. How fun! The trunks came out fantastic!!

  2. Your trunks are beautiful! What a neat idea!

  3. Wow, I am really impressed by your decorated trunk! I was sort of thinking that mine needed something to jazz it up somehow, so now I have all sorts of ideas running through my head!!!! Thank you for blog and for sharing! I think you are going to be one of the famous artists within the next few years if you aren't one yet! Thanks again. Kathleen Lundman, Woodland Park, CO

  4. I love your trunks!! They are so cool! You are right, there are so many things you can do to these trunks. I may have to try one myself. Actually, I just remembered. Yesterday I got a couple of those old library book cases and I could alter those! Thank you for the inspiration! You rock!!

  5. I found you through Tim's blog- these trunks are fabulous. Where can one purchase the trunks? I have tons of TH products and love to alter- would love to alter one. Thanks for your assistance.
