Well.... its been a while since I had time to sit and blog. Life is busy.... So I picked up some plain wooden birdcages and some paper mache boxes from Hobby Lobby a while back and I finally had a chance to do something with them. I used a very beautiful napkin that I won on the OWOH event for the birdcage and I recently was gifted some items in a very beautiful cupcake gift bag. The moment I received the gift I was very much impressed with the bag, honestly I loved the bag more than the gift, although the gift was lovely too. But, being the creative being that I am my mind immediately started devising ideas on what I could do with this bag. My teen loves cupcakes so as soon as I got home I decided to make her a box. I cut out the bag and modge podged it to the box, then I made the cupcake on the top out of Femo clay and; as I was on a roll, I also made her some little cupcake pendants and earrings that I forgot to take pics of. Once I started it was hard to stop and I stayed late that evening decorating the birdhouse too. I was very surprised to see how well Wacky Tacky glue works with wood and clay and even the ribbon. I used Modge Podge on the lace. It was fun to see these come to life after sitting on my work table for months. Sometimes it just takes one little found object, as meaningless as it may be to others, but to the artsy folks like myself, that's what it takes to create greatness.... and I really loved these and so did my girl.... cheers all!!
