Main Street swap

I signed up for a swap at Inthishouseandgarden to do 5 "buildings" from Main Street. Although it was a "block" building swap, I had asked Susie (hostess) if I could use these boxes instead. I tried to make each one a little different-

Buzz Inn: This has a couple of elements that I've had around for a while. Its a lattice box that I've attached bees to, added white vines, and included a little angel for the inside. The rose that's on top was made by Wendy Vecchi for a Tim Holtz class. This is the only one with a doll.

Mobile Home: I had gotten the truck a while ago, and decided with the box on top it looked like a mobile home, so I looked for items that might be stuck on the window... Inside are mini journals.

Fish Tales: I'm not sure why, but I have a thing about these fish. Inside are mini journals.

The Watch Tower: This is my favorite one. This was the second one I did. Inside - you guessed it - more journals.

Vintage Bird: This was my first one. I had gotten a bunch of bird ornaments after Christmas, and it kind of went from there. And yes, more journals!

I hope the recipient(s) likes them!

Okay, now for the fun stuff!

Here is a little better detail. I have such a problem getting a good shot if it doesn't fit on the scanner!

This is a 3 door cabinet tower topped off with a cute red metal roof bird house that has layers of bits and pieces of papers, both vintage and current, a vintage button, charms, and other assorted goodies. The measurements are approximate 3.5" wide, 15" tall and 3" deep. It has been finished off with several coats of gloss varnish.

I hope you will leave a comment! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine Swap Postcard

This was a fun swap - use 2 christmas cards to make a valentine postcard. Pretty happy the way this turned out although the scan isn't great. The dog is actually mylar and looks much better in person. Hopefully the recipient thinks so!
