This was one of our little projects this week.
I can't remember the blog that we saw this idea on {if I find it I will let you know...}
I can't wait to fill it with scrapbooking stuff, buttons...Leslie's idea was for our Craftin' Candy! ;)
Have a great weekend!

First Post & some Projects

Welcome to Magnolia Junk! 
We are Leslie & Jenn, two wild and crazy crafty friends!
We have known each other for over 7 years now, our kids are good friends.
We were both born in the same small town named Magnolia.
That is where we get our name "Magnolia Junk", the junk
part just because we like junkin'!
We also found out that after our families moved from Magnolia, we lived in the same town again
and went to the same elementary school.
Now we are in another new town, our lives intersecting now! :)
We get together at least once a week to have a "playdate" making something.

Here are some recent projects:
Mossy Landscapes
This is Leslie's, she has seashells in hers right now.
She made it out of a long cabinet door that she painted black.
This is my creation that Leslie helped me make...
I have it on my dining table.
Here is Leslie's Rain Barrel:
She made this herself...she is a genius, you know!
It is made from a large plastic trash can.
She cut a large circle from the lid, stretched screen across the top and there you go!
It keeps all of the leaves and etc. out of the water...this is full!
She is going to use it to water her garden!
