Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Amazing Crafting Art

This is totally amazing! It is called a Beer Goggles Top Hat...I found it and the directions over at 
The blog is called  The Art of Can Tabistry
She calls this art "tabistry"
 Tabistry - [tab - us - stree] noun, plural -tries, verb, -tried, -try·ing.

  1. the art of creating versatile textile out of ordinary pop (soda)/bear/soup/fruit/other can pull tab woven together with fabric, ribbon, cord, wire, jump rings or any other material.
  2. also referred to as "pop topping"; and in conjunction with the terms "trashion" and "upcycling"
Tabistry is a recently coined name for the art of using soda can tabs to create larger items. Often people use soda can tabs to create pieces of clothing or jewelry. These projects are a synergistic accompaniment to aluminum can crafts.

It looks a bit like "Steampunk" but her work is amazing...do go check her blog out...like 

Steampunked Upcycling using an old item you have and recycling it into something else that might be more useful giving it a new look. Mich in  LA always does this with her jewelry making. But she uses things she finds at the $1 store to "revamp" them into masterpeices..
