About Me

My photo
My name is Lorie Dominguez. I am happily married with 6 kids. I've lived my whole life here in the Mesquite area. I now live on our little ranch here in Scenic, Arizona with my family and all of our animals. It was here in Scenic that I found my new craft that I really enjoy, that is making crafts with recycled items. This hobby is referred to as "Trash to Treasure", these items are down the right hand column of my blog. I love what I do, and I hope you will also enjoy it! My Items make great gifts! So buy it and try it. You can see pretty much all that I make down the right hand side of my blog. If anyone is interested in placing an order with me, I take checks, cashier check, and money orders. You can place your order in a comment, or email me at Loriejuan@hotmail.com. Thank-you

My "Trash to Treasure" Bathroom

I have always wanted to transform a room in my house to something that has to do with recycling. I was sick of the Nemo decor in one of my bathroom, so I found my project. Having an abundance of wine corks donated from lots of people who know I use them I decided that would be my material of choice.
I am almost finished as you can see. Check back in maybe a week and I should have it all done:)

Soda Tab Hair Barrettes

 I really enjoy making hair barrettes. This is one of the many kind that I make.
I make others out of Duck Tape, and Soda Cans.

 I just opened up an Etsy store, so I will be featuring items that I make quite often to give everyone an idea about all of the fun stuff that I make.
I am figuring out how to add a link to my Etsy Shop. I am just NOT very computer literate:)

Making Earrings

 I love making earrings. Especially if they are made out of something recycled. Above is out of Red Bull can tabs. Below are Bottlecaps.
 Below are cut out of a grape Fanta can, and also can tabs from a Rock Star energy drink.
 I have lots to choose from and I am always adding new ones to the mix:) If you have any ideas for recycled earrings that I can incorporate please comment and let me know.

Fun with Purses!!

I love to make purses. All kinds of purses. I found this photo in my files and just had to add it. It is my nieces, Jaido and Jacie, and one of their little friends. Besides making them with juice pouches I have started making them with many other recycle materials. Who doesn't LOVE purses:)

Our NEW Lamps:)

I know, I know, alcohol is very bad for you:) Luckily I have a few bars saving me bottles. I finally learned how to drill holes in the bottles. It is something I have wanted to do in my Trash to Treasure shop for a long time.  They are very popular so far. At the last Las Vegas event that I did a booth I had a bus of Japanese Tourists lined up taking pictures;) I was thinking "NO PICTURES, YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM". Oh well, I still sold alot of them.
