Liz's Profile

About

I have been designing and crafting home décor and accessories for over 40 years. Yep, just gave my age away, didn't I?

I have always been fascinated with the beauty of gorgeous colors and textures and the wonderful patina of vintage and antiques treasures. I have done sewing, decoupaging, building furniture, painting "roadside rescues" and thrift store bargains and lots of other crafty things as the trends have changed over the years.

A few years ago, I discovered the "junk markets" and my life hasn't been the same. I quickly learned about Pinterest, Hometalk and numerous DIY blogs and my heart and mind never stop racing with ideas.

I began my Junktion Alley "journey into junkin" in the summer of 2012 as a way to be able to channel my creativity and to also make a little money to…

A few years ago, I discovered the "junk markets" and my life hasn't been the same. I quickly learned about Pinterest, Hometalk and numerous DIY blogs and my heart and mind never stop racing with ideas.

I began my Junktion Alley "journey into junkin" in the summer of 2012 as a way to be able to channel my creativity and to also make a little money to fund an annual "gypsy road trip". I love being able to look beyond the original purpose of something and discovering a new way to use it.

I literally think I begin to hyper-ventilate at the sight of a good, ol' pile of rusty, crusty, musty, dusty "junk" or a "roadside pile". I can dumpster dive with the best of them and strongly subscribed to the 'one man's trash is another man's treasure' theory!

I have a passion for life and the adventures it brings to us each day. I am happily married and am blessed with one daughter and three amazing and talented grandchildren. I am also the proud doggie-mama to two beautiful Golden Retrievers and a very loving Yellow Labrador.

And so my creative journey continues as I learn the "ins and outs" of jewelry making. Welcome to my sometimes zany but always fun world. ♥~Liz
