I bought a couple of wooden boxes last week in a shop I really shouldn't have been in to begin with, the potential to spend vast sums of money was simply overwhelming!! but I'll tell you about that another time... I covered one of the boxes (40 x 10) with some old book pages and a splash of acrylic. I lined up a row of wooden cotton reels and eventually found a stick to thread them on.I originally thought I'd write on the reels and stick photos in the background but after covering them with Cavallini paper the whole piece seems to be heading in another yet to be decided direction! In the meantime I've hammered a few tacks around the edges and added a bit of wire

My dear friend Muriel turned 40 today and to help her celebrate I created an Old Lady's party bag. The idea was in the latest copy of Sommerset Holidays and Celebrations by an artist called Lisa Bebi http://lisabebi.blogspot.com/search/label/old%20lady%20party%20package I rather liked the way Lisa used Lady's instead of Ladies and decided to keep it that way!A straw with an old pic of Muriel, black and white of course
