Jr. Bricoleur ~ Angela

Pin It
Sometime back I did a post about Jr. Bricoleur Shirlie.

This post is about one of the other Jr.Bricoleurs, Angela.
You might remember another post I did about Random Bits.
Angela takes what she calls "random bits" and puts them together to make these.
No two are alike.  These are available at the shows we sell at.  Angela is 14 and has been making these for about a year now.  I am so proud of her.

Maybe one of you would like a vintage bedspring and folding ruler.  There are so many uses for these.
