Creatively Tuesday #19


Ahhhh!!!   I have been crazy busy today!!!  So sorry for the late posting!!

So, if you have been following along, then you know that I just switched over from Blogger to WordPress!  It was pretty much one of the most stressful events I’ve been through!  In the end, it has been well worth it!

Here is what The Rustic Pig has been up to this week….

I painted this sweet Child’s Desk on Tuesday…


It sold that afternoon!

The rest of the week was spent moving my space in the back of The Corner Cartel, up to the front (pics coming soon!), and of course, switching over from Blogger to WordPress.

Yesterday I wrote Journal Entry #5 from FOLK magazine’s journaling agenda.


Today, I finished a sweet little stool to go with the desk I sold above.


I’m super excited to see what you’ve been working on, but first, let’s see who our Creative Geniuses are this week!
Please show these blogs some love by checking out these fabulous features, and should you decide to Pin any of these, please go their site first and pin away!

Valentine LOVE…

  15. When it comes to working in a warehouse, industrial building, or perhaps
    on a construction site, the forklift is a tool that is vital.
    General purpose zinc-carbon cells are commonly used in home appliances.
    They are capable of lifting the most monstrous of weights and ensure these get carried around well.
