I am inspired by her daily, and just spend some time looking and you will quickly know why.This is just one of my favorite items that she made, you can read more about it HERE.

There are so many more amazing things over at Funky Junk, you just have to go see for yourself, plus she is having a different giveaway each day this week!

Now on with more fun! I am lucky enough to be a part of Donna's amazing week! If you are new here at The little Green Bean I am happily married to one of the most amazing men, really he is something else, just ask anyone who knows him! We have 3 wonderful boys, who keep us going all the time! We both work full time, but always find time to do projects and crafts! I recently started a small little business over on ETSY selling some of my hand made goodies. I started making tote bags from recycled coffee bean bags, and from there, I just couldn't stop! I have always been crafty, but I feel like I have finally found my niche'!
I love to also take "junk" and re-purpose it! It is simply amazing what you can do with stuff other people throw away! And not to mention, great for the environment! I am willing to spray paint almost anything, and am learning to love the local thrift stores! Here are a few of my favorite things I have re-done!See the before and after of these chairs hereThis was a door that I noticed at my neighbors that had been leaning up against his garage forever, he sold it to me for $6!
