"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Explosion Box

Here is the Explosion Box I've been working on the last couple of days. As you can see from the second picture down, this was made especially for my husband, Gary, who is truly my world. The colors, although not very clear, are our wedding colors. If you double click on the pictures, you can see the individuals layers much better. I hope you enjoy the views!

Napkin "Ring"

I made these last fall when I finally had my dining room and kitchen freshly painted. If you can't tell, I've got a coffee house theme in my dining room/kitchen!


Varmint the kitty is doing great - she's already figured out how to slip her bandage down to get at the stitches, so the next 10 days will be very challenging. Abby, the toy-aholic has been keeping me busy this morning, demanding I play throw or tug-a-war with her and I've been trying to get pics of the finished explosion box taken. So, once Abby settles for her afternoon nap, I'll post the pics! I think Gary will be very surprised when he sees it.
