WOYWW107

Goodly day evverone
Desks of the world unite today over at Stamping Ground for your day is here; big and small, short and tall we do want to see them all!
I've had to shift some stuff out of the way so you only get to see the detritus of creativity! However there are a couple of things that may be of interest.......
Like this tin of matchboxes perhaps? Ready and waiting for the magic to happen. (Just a heads up for you, in July I thought I'd do an altered matchbox swap with the theme "My life in a box" so if anyone's interested in participating do keep an eye out for the details in a later post)
Over the weekend I came across this dinky little set of dominoes, you can get an idea of just how small they are by the matchbox in front..... aren't they great?
Then, last week you may remember this tag was in progress, well I got it finished too so thought you may like to see it
You can't see the acetate butterflies properly in the light but they give a lovely soft feel and the rose is a Katzelkraft stamp cut and made  into the rose, liberally covered in perfect pearls!
Then lastly here is my charm cupboard with the new addition..... good news is that there are more to come as I've signed up for another of Roni's charm swaps!
So that's my space this week.
Hope you all have a gloriously creative day and be Blessed in your art

Oh so fun, I'll have to go back and resnoop. Love the little charm cupboard, I love old, aged wood storage. Spotted the dominos right off how fun tiny, tiny..and I chuckled "LIFE in a BOX" sometimes it seems that way,I suppose it will end that way too. And your tag so beautiful. Always a fun stop but especially on WOYWW. Thanks for sharing the fun. Enjoy

Great blog post today. I love those little dominoes but I am not sure what I would do with them. The matchbox swap sounds interesting. I have a matchbox die that makes a box a little larger then a small matchbox. I may have to think about joining in. Thanks for stopping by my post today. Vickie

minnie_mac said...

Elizabeth said...

Hi Neil, detritus indeed but only the most interesting type. Your swap sounds interesting -not sure I could get my long and varied life into a matchbox so it could be quite a challenge. The finished tag is quite lovely which is no more than expected and I think your charm box is perfect too. Here's wishing you a great week. Elizabeth #74

S said...

Loved my little peek around - those dominoes caught my eye immediately - too cute.

Spyder said...

ohoo life in a match box does sound like fun, I used to get my girls to see how many tiny things they could get into a matchbox.
I hadn't realised you can buy 'plain' match boxes just for craftig...I have draws filled with matches!! Happy Crafting!
