I love all the magazines published by Stampington & Company. I have been lucky to have some of my work published in two of their publications, Haute Handbags and GreenCraft Magazines. While I was reading their latest issue of Somerset Life (published by Stampington & Company), a creative call challenge caught my attention.
The challenge? Inspired Ideas..So Sweet Tart Tins...what can you transform them into? The most obvious was to create a pin cushion from the tiny tart tins but that idea had already been published. I have many vintage tart tins and jell-o molds, so I brainstormed. I love dress forms and vintage items I can upcycle. Slowly, an idea took shape in the form of a dress-form pin cushion with the tart tins as the base. This idea grew to include vintage thread spools and vintage linens.
Here is my Inspired Idea:
I submitted a few to Somerset Life Magazine and plan on adding them to my Etsy store and have them available for my fall craft shows.
