Baby Baby Baby Mailbox Muse Kit

This month the Altered Pages Design Team is partnering with
KUNZE Deco-Accessories  
 
The team will be using KUNZE German Scrap 
with Mailbox Muse Kits! 
 
The Winter 2015  Mailbox Muse Kit was BABY BABY  BABY
 
 
In this kit you receive:  paper dolls, paper flowers & gems, glitter washi tape, collages, rubber stamps, CRAFT ATTITUDE, metal ATC tin + 4 projects including one video! 
 
 
With BABY BABY  BABY Mailbox Muse kit I made a paper doll and clothes with a pocket to keep them in. The instructions for my paper doll are included in the kit!

 
She needed a permanent place to reside.  I decided the perfect place was in my Fashionable Femmes book opposite the project I did for Unruly PaperArts last July.  A little make-over to the pocket would be necessary!!!!
 

Cover of My Fashionable Femmes book!

 
 
 
The blank page next to the Layered Art Doll created for Unruly Paper Arts is the where my paper doll will go!  The page had been prepared months ago just waiting for the perfect addition to the book!
 
 
Ink edges of the pocket with brown ink.  Adhere the pocket to the page with Tacky Glue IRrESitible Texture Mist was applied with my fingers around the edge of the page to give it a distressed look.

 
Add German Scrap  using Tacky Glue to the pocket.  A little Gold Leaf Foil  was added to give the two pages continuity. Use Duo with  Gold Leaf Foil.  Outline the Torso with gold pen.


Add a few Dew Drops to the lower right corner.

Stroll though all the posts  on the Altered Pages blog this month and see the ideas the Altered Design Team shared!!!
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 I have a quick St. Patrick's Day Card!
 
 

Papers from Robin's Nest
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
Now for a few ideas for organizing your space!
 
I have a friend, Beth, that has an awesome little bead store here in Bremerton, WA.  It is  called Echo ArtWorks, it is filled top to bottom.  It is a very small space and has an amazing amount of beads, tools, and to much more in there.  I thought I would share a few of the ways she keeps organized!
 
 
  Bottles and jars contain anything from seashells to vintage Lucite!

 
 Then there are baskets....
 
Baskets display Lucite, ribbons, yarns and more!


 
Here is something you may not have ever seen....
 
These vintage metals are displayed on a repurposed Vintage French Bottle drying rack!
The posts bottles would rest on make great post to hang things on...
to use wasted space Beth added "S" hooks to hang more items from.

 
 A Printer Block Cabinet has a lot of cubbies for tons of storage!
I love the color coordinated drawers.

 
Anything with drawers makes wonderful storage!!!
 
  Thrift store finds make great units to store things! 

This has got to be my favorite!!! 
Do you have any old skirt hangers!!!! 
Put one or two on the wall and store one off items!
 
Every bit of wall space is used...

with shelves and racks of beads and more beads.
 
Maybe you picked an idea or two from the store tour.
 
Thank you Beth for letting me share pictures of your store!
 
I hope you have gotten some ideas this month to help you organize your creative space!
 
Comment today and share your favorite organization tip you read about this month.... or maybe you have one you would like to share.

favecrafts Best Blogger Craft Event - MD hobby & craft


I was honored to be invited to the CHA Blogger Networking Party



In my swag from the CHA Blogger Networking Party I received MD craft & Hobby Chicken Wire and MD Metal Working Gloves! 

Wearing my MD Metal Working Gloves and wire cutters I cut a bout 20 inches off the roll of MD craft & Hobby Chicken Wire. On the roll it is folded in half, I didn't unfold it until it was cut. The square of MD craft & Hobby Chicken Wire was about twice the size of my finished nest, 9 inches round.


Still wearing my MD Metal Working Gloves I rolled the edges of the MD craft & Hobby Chicken Wire to form the nest.

Once I was happy with the nest I started adding fibers: ribbons, twine, yarn, gold string beads, rickrack and any other scrap fiber.








Fill with eggs!! 
What a great Easter dinner centerpiece.







THANKS MD hobby & craft!!
