About Me

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

Check out our new summer projects!

I am trying to learn how to make these candy wrapper purses. Above is one my sister Candice got in Mexico. Below is one that I have started. I believe once I get the hang of it I could make 2 or 3 a week. (we will see)!!!

The kiddo's & I also have been making bookmarks out of boxes that we have saved up to use for something, we finally found there purpose. I made a sticker with my info on back. I can use them like business cards!

A summer project of my kids has been recycling old crayons into new ones. My daughter Jazmyn has a blast and makes about 30 new crayons per day. These will be great for my next show that I do! Thanks to everybody who cleaned out there crayon boxes & gave them to us!!

Don't they look cute!! Good job Jazmyn!!

With all the fun craft things we have going here at the Dominguez Ranch it is sure to be an interesting summer!!!
