First, Lori shares her brilliant set of Good ol' Sport vintage plane, train, and automobile. We adore this project! Perfect for a little boy room or just for your vintage-loving family members and friends.

"This was a really fun project to create. I have an eight year old little boy so I think you can guess what has happened to the models I created. I picked up these wooden models at the local craft store for a buck a piece and I turned them into one of a kind model toys.

I have to laugh everytime I see my title for the models...Planes, Trains and Automobiles. I can only think of the movie with Steve Martin and John Candy from years back. It is one hilarious movie and one of my favorites so I loved being able to create something that actually was inspired from the title. So pull out your papers, sandpaper and glue and create your own models...hey and watch the movie while you’re at it for extra entertainment." ~Lori

Next, we have another kind of transportation - a memory wagon from Andrew! This is a brilliant project using Mother Goose to store those special treasures and photos.

"The inspiration for this project was to create a different way of keeping special items that have personal and sentimental meaning. I thought old style wagon would look great  in my craft studio and it gave me the opportunity to make the small crates that are on my wagon. " ~Andrew
