Just as described. Seller obviously put a lot of effort into packaging it for shipping, however about 1/4 of the corks had still managed to come off during the shipping process. No big deal, I simply reattached them with hot glue.

Creating and/or refurbishing Eco friendly gifts.

It started when I was inspired by a wine cork board I saw in my friend Mandy's kitchen. She has such amazing, exquisite taste, I just had to make one for myself. A couple years later someone mentioned that I should try to sell them. I started hunting for frames and places to find used frames - one place, the Hammond Salvage - I call my happy place!
I asked my wine drinking friends and visited some local bars and restaurants to collect corks. After a while I had another creative idea to reuse the old frames, to make chalkboards, and it worked out great.
I try to learn something new every year and that's how I started knitting and crocheting.
Mostly, I love discovering hard to find cute objects, ones that are just shocking, like when you know you have something that very few people have seen or will every see... I like to share those great finds with the world.
I really enjoy what I do and I love the thought of my up-cycled pieces decorating some else's house or apartment! That's my true joy.
