Shiny Tin Foil....where did that name come from?

Years ago my brother suggested I start a blog to showcase my crafts. I immediately said Yes! But then came the hard work....coming up with a name.

Ugh....a name....witty or smart, cute or serious....The few names I came up with were taken. Darn it all. So we got around to brainstorming on ideas. Then of course we started to talk about our childhood. We had some fun memories, especially hanging out at our Grandmother's house. I made the comment that she saved everything, ziplock bags, tin foil, plastic butter containers (lives through the Great Depression).

I mentioned that when I was young I use to joke that I like shiny things so much, I would become an old woman and pick shiny tin foil out of the trash because it sparkled. We laughed and laughed, but then it dawned on us, it was the perfect name. Shiny Tin Foil. On my blog I added the tag line "Picking the ShinyThings out of the Trash of LIfe". I love to find shiny things like beads, glitter and sequins to make things.

So it begins...the blog. Check it out at and see all the sparkly things I have made in the past!

Thanks for checking out my story!!!
