Box of Hope

Ive made this for both Tattered Angels DT and for someone who I really admire (she will be at CHA next week - I hope this thing travels well!). I think using spray inks as a stain has far more appeal than brush strokes and is, in the long run, more cost effective than paints.

The glass box was a real sod to put together but its all done now and filled with accent and glass beads. The tiny tag inside is so darling and one of my many finds from The Fruit Pixie - you will hate me for giving you that link!


Im going to make a replica box for me, but in miniature to go on my display stand....I enjoyed putting this together.

Lastly......erm, I really did dye my hair red today. The girls at the hairdressers gasped when I told them but I was determined to try something different. And even though I really HATE the cut, I do like the colour (if not a little angry looking!). Ive not seen it in daylight yet as I left the dressers at 6pm so this is the nighttime look (and yes, I am wearing my jacket in my office - its freezing!)

A bit loud, isn't it?!
