Handmade objects always have a story. They have a real character and charm over mass-produced items. My blog is featuring all the handmade items I make and I'm also going to post Free Patterns for crocheting, knitting and other crafts. I'm also going to post my favourite recipes for free! Are you interested in a certain pattern or recipe? Feel free to contact me.

I love to recycle books and records and create unique purses, clocks, IPhone docks, Ereader Tablet Covers, hollow safe books. You can find my crafting in My RETROGRANDMA Etsy Store

I also love to seek out collectible treasures and you can find them in my RetroClassics shop on Etsy

I've had a number of opportunities for my unique handmade items to be featured on many blogs. I LOVE the RETRO ERA and that's why they call me "RETROGRANDMA"! FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/Retrograndma

Wow! April is already here. Hope the snow leaves us here soon :-) I've been away during Easter and have just returned from a wonderful trip to see my grandkids and children. Now I have to get back to reality - work! I've got some projects on the go here and it's very difficult to get back to my routine again.

I need some suggestions here please. I have boxes full of movie trailer films and am trying to think of what I can create with them. Lamp shades is one suggestion I was given - but is there anything else you can suggest? Anybody's comments would be greatly appreciated. I've listed some of my film on etsy as destash supplies if anyone is interested in purchasing.
