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 aluminum Can Flowers!

These are my newest Trash to Treasure item. I am trying to incorpoate cans into my store. I have so scared to work with it because it is SHARP!! But, it hasn't been so bad. I am also making ornaments for my tree at the Festival of Trees here in Mesquite that look like these.

Time for an update............

It has been a while since I updated my blog, so here is some pictures of the new things I have been working on. I hope you enjoy it all.
These are small purses made out of juice cartons. They sell for $3.00. They have become pretty popular up at Tuacahn. Did you know that it take one of these juice cartons 50 years to decompose in a landfill? I thought that was crazy when I read it.

These bags are made out of Sunday Morning Comics. They're quite sturdy & colorful. They have various prices from $6.00 to $15.00.
These are headbands made out of recycled items. There is two kinds, one made out of recycled potato chip bags and another made out of soda can tabs. Both are equally cute. These sell for $5.00.

These are very scary pet snakes. We make these out of the bottle caps that are to bent up to do anything else with. They are around two feet long. They sell for $5.00.

These bracelets are also made out of recycled wrappers of all sorts. They come in many different sizes & colors. They sell for $3.00.

These are recycled altoids containers. They come in just about anything you can think of from weddings, birthdays, tooth fairy containers, sweet 16, new baby, and many more. They are great for money, gift cards, jewelry, or any small trinket. They sell for $2.00.

These are recycled corion tiles that I have turned into magnets. They have lots of different sayings on them. They can also be personalized. My favorite saying on one is "Families are like Fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts" I love it!! These sell for $2.00 for the small, and $3.00 for the large.

These are ISPY games made out of recycled plastic bottles. I try to put atleast 15 items per game. Kids just love them. They sell for $3.00.

These are magnetic tic-tac-toe games made with my old recycled countertops. I also made a cary case for them. These sell for $10.00

As you can see I have been pretty busy lately. If your interested in buying anything you can call me if you know me or send me an email. Thanks for all the support:)
