Scrapping the Music - Try Everyday by Transistor Radio

The newest challenge is UP at Scrapping the Music

The song is Try Everyday by Transistor Radio and the challenge is 
by special request by the musician himself!!!
Please go check out the story behind the challenge, 
it tells of the how the artist's came to find to Scrapping the Music!
You can also see how the design team was inspired by the song!

[Synchronistically, Sharon Wheat is one of my very favorite artists
and I've had the pleasure of meeting her in real life!!!]

The title of the song was my inspiration.
 It made me think of this blog's name, 
"Trying to Grab Some Happy..."
which I try to do every day!

The photo is from HAPPY HOUR at 
Clark & Lewis on the Willamette River, downtown Portland
where my girlfriend's husband ordered 
on the happy hour menu! 
Boy was I happy!!!!

: .)

So inspired!  I hope you are too, come and play along!!!

Flower Power

I wanted to make this mirror, which I saw on Addicted2Decorating.
(Link to the DIY on the photo below.)

Then, I got an idea...

I had to do something with all those Starbucks stoppers I was collecting!
(I just love that Mermaid!)

Particle board ring/wreath from Michaels, hot glue, gold craft spray paint, mirror...that's it!!!  
It does need a hanger.
Easy peasy!

Migrating Souls

My friend Nyla posted this picture along with a little blurb about
Dia de los Muertos on on my Facebook wall...

She presented a little challenge about me making "a much cooler" monarch and soul courier...

So, I accepted the challenge 
and turned this,
with a little inspiration from Tim Burton & the Corpse Bride:  

Into this...
