~* on a roll...*~

Two projects in 24 hours! This is a biggie for me!
I literally just have scraps to work with. My vintage earrings which are my absolute FAVORITE items to use on my projects are all in storage.
But I found this one lonely earring in a drawer, so it's on here! I got this idea from Prima. They had featured shadow boxes recently. I modified the idea using a crate! I painted it with Heidi Swapp "Betty" pink paint and threw in some Prima flowers and Teresa Collins dangling bling.
Very quick and easy! And right in the middle of creating this, I had a call for a showing. On New Year's Day!?! I was in my sweats really thinking this was a free day to relax for once, yea right! I was running around here with just one hour to get this house sparkling clean. I'm ready for a padded room, I'm not kidding! Anyways, Ava now has something to hang in her room. (But it will have to wait for the new house or my real estate agent will kill me!)

Oh Deb! Another showing? Oh, let this be a good ONE! And that shadow box is darling, just wonderful! I had fun yesterday; I spent the whole day making a book, writing the story, and drawing the illustrations. I HAD A BLAST! On top of that, I did some other fun crafts like make crowns, etc....hang in their Deb. I do hope with all my heart that this struggle to sell will pass quickly. Bisous, Anita

Hi Deb,
What a cute project - and amazing that you manage to do it with limited supplies.
Fingers crossed on your viewing i hope it goes well so you can get a new craft room and get back to normal.
Thanks for popping by my blog - everythings going fine with me - I have a scan next Friday so hopefully we'll get to find out if we're having a little boy or little girl, I'll keep you posted.
Lots of Love - Ju xxx
