I would like to formally welcome you to my blog:
B.E. Creative Co.
You may know me already from my other blog 'It's All Good!' But just in case we haven’t met, I'll introduce myself.
My name is Brenda Eddy. I like to say I live one block west of Main Street in Smalltown, USA (pop. 1200). That's in beautiful Colorado, by the way. I have been married to Sunny for 31 years. Together we have two wonderful daughters: Chelsie (24) and Grace (11).
The purpose of this blog is to be able to express myself through altered art using an eclectic mix of items as my canvas. I will also share ideas and pictures of fun and funky thrifting finds I run across and use in either my art pieces or home decor.
I like unique.
I enjoy creating things out of repurposed, recycled or just plain cast-off items. Not necessarily to keep them from the landfill--though I do feel that's important--but it also makes me wonder about the story behind the object. How far has this traveled? Who used it and for what? You know, 'back in the day' kind of stuff. That's what interests me.
Switching things up is my thing. Hanging vintage utensils from an old chippy rake head, filling an old, blue Ball glass jar with vintage marbles and sticking an antique faucet through the lid, making a pie bird's nest in a vintage hand-cranked meat grinder--these things make me happy.
I hope my blog will be inspiring as well as a launching pad of thoughts and ideas that will hopefully help you realize you can 'create outside the box'.

I do make custom altered board books. You can click here or on the tab at the top of this page for examples and more information.
