    Thank you 👍👍

    I try to sign up for the cashback. But I can’t seem to get past the numbers at the bottom. Just keeps refreshing?

  3. Geralyn McGah-Miller on January 28, 2023 at 3:51 am

    Well done….good on you!

  4. Gizmo on January 28, 2023 at 3:52 am

    I went to Home Depot just yesterday and asked about those wood scraps. That’s the key word, scraps, on the small side, but the bigger pieces were not free. Granted they were 70% off, but NOT FREE! You’d think they’d be happy to get rid of the pile of odd pieces of wood taking up space.

  5. Bell D on January 28, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Fantastisk channel, love it

  6. Prairie Storm on January 28, 2023 at 3:54 am

    Love all of your video’s!

  7. Painted Garden Farm on January 28, 2023 at 3:55 am

    THANKS for the reminder to do up some scrap wood projects! Just grabbed some of your graphics on Etsy….I was wondering how to spend that last few $$ of my gift card! I have used the method you use to transfer designs before with varied success. I did it with floral prints and copied them at a local fedex with colored laser ink. Some of the color rubbed off too but it worked to make it more vintage. Out to the garage tomorrow. I just happened across your channel recently and really enjoy it. I love to up-cycle and flip furniture and anything I can find. It drives my husband crazy. I have about 100 little OUI yogurt jars. Trying different things with them, great vanity jars for cotton swabs/balls. Would like to see your ideas for them.

    Engine enamel sounds like something I wouldn’t have near food or drinks 😅

  9. Shelly Collins on January 28, 2023 at 3:56 am

    Deidre, do you have a video link on how you made the tags on the coasters? I may have overlooked it when I searched through your videos. Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge!!

  10. Wendy Smith on January 28, 2023 at 3:57 am

    Hi again Diedra!! I have been preparing for my 1st Craft Show in October… I have a couple of questions… I’ve been picking up EVERY piece of wood I see for free or next to nothing… I recently found a television armoire that had fallen out of a pickup truck ( I guess…) But it HUGE and only has a couple of pieces busted off it.. but the whole sides ( 3 ft wide 6ft tall) are in perfect shape! The shelves inside it are the same way… I know I can make signs with it. But my question is… Can you use pressed wood to make bread boards?

  11. Lorie Nutter on January 28, 2023 at 3:57 am

    What software do you use to design your graphics?

  12. Emily Chavez on January 28, 2023 at 3:57 am

    When do I use polyacrylic or polyurethane??

  13. Jesus Is-Coming-Soon on January 28, 2023 at 4:00 am

    Where do you buy your big ball of wax you rub on your pieces?

  14. SneakyHippo on January 28, 2023 at 4:02 am

    A little tip to help with a vintage wood look and feel. Get a wire brush wheel for a drill and use it on the surfaces around the writing. It scrapes away the softer part of the wood and leaves the harder parts. Gives the look and feel of reclaimed barn wood.

  15. kimberley mansfield on January 28, 2023 at 4:02 am

    This was great.

  16. Crafty Recycler on January 28, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Wow! Deidra all great ideas! Thank you

  17. Life is messy but I’m Learning as I grow! on January 28, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Your creativity blows me away! Thanks for the inspiration you give me with all of you beautiful creations. I make craft videos too. It’s great share and learn with others what we create. I would love to connect and learn from you. Let your talent keep shining bright and your passion guide you.

  18. lfernand plopsa on January 28, 2023 at 4:04 am

    I guess you’re living around dimwits who buy this crap from you ? man,man,man, and i thought i’ve seen everything 😂😂😂😂🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀

  19. Gabe Webb on January 28, 2023 at 4:04 am

    is the Engine Enamel non toxic. I can just see a 1 year old grabbing one of those coasters and putting it in their mouth. Will that harm them?

  20. Wendy Smith on January 28, 2023 at 4:06 am

    Have you ever used plywood for bread boards… Or does it look too cheap? Maybe if I paint it vs stain?

  21. Activity Author on January 28, 2023 at 4:08 am

    You are so talented…Omg! What a great video ❤️

  22. Nina Hamann on January 28, 2023 at 4:10 am

    Signed up. Can’t wait to check out all that it offers. Thank you.

  23. Zach on January 28, 2023 at 4:11 am

    dont stain it{bread/cheese boards} use olive oil and its safe for food and looks great! 2 light coats.

  24. j.d. thompson on January 28, 2023 at 4:11 am

    Thank you. I wish this came out on 8 track many years ago. You are right for standing up.

  25. Activity Author on January 28, 2023 at 4:12 am

    I love finding fellow crafters like myself ❤️ I’m going to try some of these!

    Nice ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  28. Miss Mandy Made on January 28, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Very helpful! Thanks so much!

  29. Pam on January 28, 2023 at 4:14 am

    How do you know what to charge? I make items and dont know what to price them at. Thanks

  30. Lala Gamma on January 28, 2023 at 4:16 am

    Love the projects. Namesta 💓🐞💕

  31. 4UnlimitedBEing on January 28, 2023 at 4:17 am

    1) Balls, Canada is expensive! 😱(Though you do have a higher GNP per capita, so a higher average standard of living than the States, so you’ve got that going for you! lol)

    2) I love these ideas! Gosh, the shutter slat idea?! Shut.up. I just saw some free shutters on fb or craigslist & couldn’t think of a quick turnaround idea for them & didn’t want tons of stuff taking up space in the garage. This is more work than just painting or decorating a shutter for a wall decor, but also loads more income potential. Thanks for that! And the "shelf sitters?" Well, I’ve definitely got some pieces in my scrap bin in the garage that would work for those. Awesome ideas & tips! Thank you!!! 😍🥰🙏

    Excuse me while I go see if those shutters are still available! 😉 (Also, I’ll have to check again if Home Depot or other local hardware/home improvement stores have the free scrap cuts bin. Haven’t found them before, & even the "oops" or deformed wood is selling at a higher price than standard lumber was 2 yrs ago!!!)

  32. Charles Daniel on January 28, 2023 at 4:17 am

    I saved scraps till my wife said get it out… Soon after.. I needed it…

  33. kelly foley on January 28, 2023 at 4:18 am

    You go girl! Awesome

  34. Carrie Smith on January 28, 2023 at 4:18 am

    You’re so awesome. The more I watch, the more I’m inspired. Xoxo

  35. eevagirl on January 28, 2023 at 4:18 am

    You are freaking amazing! 🙏

  36. R.C. Miller on January 28, 2023 at 4:19 am

    Craft shows usually have entry fees which must be overcome before there is any profit made.

  37. Helen Cat on January 28, 2023 at 4:21 am

    Wow! This was so helpful. I’m doing my first big craft fair in November, and was looking for something else to add! Your way of explaining, and sharing of tips to be a successful vendor is much appreciated.

    I’ve found out my local library uses a laser jet printer so I can try the midge podge transfer 😁

  40. Angela Houk on January 28, 2023 at 4:27 am

    I would love to know where you are selling your items. My husband has made several coat hanger boards in cherry and walnut that are stunning and not one nibble online. He makes ladders out of branches and gorgeous farmhouse benches with walnut and red oak. Nothing. It’s very discouraging.

  41. Shirley Mahoney on January 28, 2023 at 4:32 am

    Bit too much advertising about things that are not made of scrap wood that would cost money

  42. Eddie Henrard on January 28, 2023 at 4:32 am

    If you use the shiny backing paper from self adhesive labels to reverse print on (with laser printer) it comes away without all the bother of rubbing after the Mod Podge dries.

  43. Marjolijn V. on January 28, 2023 at 4:34 am

    I just found your channel and I am hooked. Thank you for sharing your knowlegde.

  44. Lori Purcell on January 28, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Thank you!!!! This is great. I’ve become a wood junkie. This is so fun🤪

  45. PoleGem on January 28, 2023 at 4:42 am

    Hey honey! U KNOW ur our hero and I adore EVERYTHING u do!!! But please consider leaving the tips on the shutter thingies. Feel they add character! Trimmed they just look like trim wood from big box store and it will save a step! Thank u so much!

  46. Chery Layton on January 28, 2023 at 4:42 am

    Dear Diedre, I ordered your chalk paint recipe book on Etsy on 10/29 and haven’t received it yet. I know things are crazier than they used to be for mail, etc. just want to make sure the order was received. I’ve never purchased via Etsy before. If there’s an email or more appropriate way to contact…please advise. Thank you! I’m learning so much from your videos

  47. Alice Wills on January 28, 2023 at 4:44 am

    I so loving you’re videos! Never look at crafts the same way!

  48. Sandra Haukaas on January 28, 2023 at 4:45 am

    Love the video! Thanks ☺️

  49. Pattie Hartmann on January 28, 2023 at 4:47 am
