Little fairy house

I made this for a swap on Craftster. Its about a 4 inch cube. There is a battery operated tea light in the bottom so it glows from inside.

I wish I had done something else with the inside of the front wall so the cut edge of the fairy panel wasn't so obvious when it was light. Ah well...something to remember for next time.

How many mixed-media artists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Five. One to scour flea markets for the perfect vintage light bulb, one to collage over it with found papers, one to age it further with walnut crystals, one to give it nice highlights with Treasure Gold rub-ons and one to stick it in the socket with E6000 heavy-duty adhesive. It doesn't work but it looks wonderful and sells on for $45.

(I didn't write it, I saw it in a book and it cracked me up. It could be the Benadryl's fault, though)

This past year (since we moved into the new house in December of 2007) has not been the best year for me, craft-wise. My goal for this year is to really get back into the thick of things and create some really awesome work.

I'm not going to say its a resolution. I never keep those.

12 Day of Christmas

This is what I made my sis for Christmas. Each block is one of the 12 days of Christmas. I couldn't get a good picture that shows the colors correctly.
These are some chunky houses made for some swaps on Craftster (of course)
#5 is my favorite, I think.
