Anne Franklin Designs GIVEAWAY {perfect for V-day!}

I love it finding creative people that take mundane, every day things and repurpose them into something splendid… Anne from Anne Franklin Designs. This gal takes vintage game pieces, fabric, or keys and turns them into mini works of art! How cool is that?! She makes necklaces, earrings, wall art, and mini notepads with them.

jewelry made from game pieces

But I think my favorite item she makes is her mini monopoly note pads! Anne lives in Denver, Colorado and is following her dream to help her family AND do what she loves every day. She is the head chef, maid, and chauffeur for her husband and three girls. {I’m sure many of us can relate haha}

LOVE vintage keys and old bicycles!
