    I'm new to not only this site but to the computer. I've only had one since Feb. and before that I'd never used one. But I've been using found objects to make yard art inside art, just all kinds of things for years. I haven't figured out how to fill out my profile on here yet but I will.

    Re: Newbies, Come here and introduce yourselves..

    Hello there!! I'm not a newby, but I'm definitely a stranger. I worked so much overtime, like a bunch of 12 and 16 hour days along with some 8 hour days for 29 days in a row with one day off, then start the 29 day routine again for the past few years I worked. Just not enough time to visit many online places. I'm happily retired now and I'm catching up on yard work, house work , family ties and garden junking. I made another terra cotta pot man this year and remarbled an old bowling ball who had lost most of its marbles. Smile. It feels so good to have time to do some fun things and it feels good to be back here too.

    It's been ages since I've visited Garden Junk. I just received a message from David reminding me I still have old friends here. I've been spending most of my time starting up a photography business so junking has been put a little further down the list.

     I'll have to find the photo section and get caught up. ~ Ruth

    Re: Newbies, Come here and introduce yourselves..

    I wish it was busier. I came to the other place way back when Martina started it, but worked so much overtime that I could rarely post. I'm retired now and have time, but there doesn't seem to be anyone here to talk to. I have some photos of some stuff I made this summer, but don't know how to post pictures.

    Hi Linda,

    There are two ways for you to post your photos. You can click on options, then file/update and that will take you to your computer where you can download them. You must write something in the compose section first or they will not download. The other way is to use html links from a site like Flickr or Photobucket. and  just post the html link into the compose  box.

    I do hope you will post what you've made. We need some new ideas here...thnx, Dottie

    Re: Newbies, Come here and introduce yourselves..

    Thanks Dottie, I'm going to give it a try and see how it does.

    The first couple of pictures are of a terra cotta pot man I made a couple of months ago. I made one back about a dozen years ago and he looked okay, but we hadn't lived in that house very long and there weren't any flowers to surround him. These characters look better amidst flowers.

    The second and third pictures are of a rooster my niece and I put together about 9 years ago. We left the frame as it was when I bought it and used gold colored half marbles on the bowling ball. Poor little rooster. He lost his marbles over the years, or at least a good many of them. I painted the frame a brighter color and added more colorful marbles to the bowling ball. I love the new and improved rooster.

    The last picture is of a roof vent thing. I copied that idea from some garden junk forum. I don't know if it was here or not. Where ever I saw it, I found it to be more difficult to paint than I thought it was.

    Linda
