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

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.

Corkboard Picture Frame

My daughter Tiffani works at an Italian Restaurant here in town. She saves me wine corks because I LOVE them. They look so awesome on these frames.

I love recycled things:)

 People that I see on the street in our small town know me as the "Trash to Treasure" lady. They give me bags and boxes off things they don't want to throw away. They know I will find a purpose for it:) A friend of mine named Julie brought me an assorted box of treasures. In the box was a popped bladder ball punching bag.

Well, this is what I turned it into, a cute little purse:) I love my job!!

Saturdays at Tuacahn:)

 Tuacahn has always been one of my favorite shows because of the beautiful surroundings.
 The weather is usually perfect. (Except for the wind)

 But, you just can't beat the view.
My kids fight over who gets to go with me each week. This week Jeremiah & Jazmyn won.

First Friday in Las Vegas

 I have a new favorite show that I have been doing since the 1st of January. It is called First Friday. It is in the Arts District in Las Vegas. It is held on the 1st Friday of every month. It has been going for about 10 years I was told. They close down several blocks and it is wild and CrAzY. (I love it)
They have live bands and DJ's. People are dancing on every street corner. It is a show that I will continue to do for a long time:)

 This is my son Juan and his girlfriend Josilynn. I need to bring a couple kids with me each time I go because it gets really busy. They enjoy coming with me:)
Juan's smile says it all!!!

Our newest hair barrettes:)

I have always wanted to make these cuties.
I think they turned out so cute!!
I had to torture my daughter Jazmyn to be my model,
but she didn't mind. She likes these barrettes:)
