So cute!  I hadn't even thought to look at Freddy's for the plates, etc.  Do you feel like you got a good deal for them?  I want to do something similar to give away with treats on at the holidays, but I want to use resin to coat the backs and have had a heck of a time finding thorough help with that.  Any advice out there?

Very pretty!  I like the all-blue of it and it's given me an idea for a possible gift myself.  Thanks, Craftewoman!

haha!  I'm a big fan of FFS, but I don't know that I've ever used it for the power of good like you have.   Wink

This seems like my kind of swap so I hope I can get in on another round after the new year!
3805  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Heavenly Shrine Box ~ Fixed the Pics! on: November 10, 2008 07:44:53 PM
Before I made it into a shrine box, it was a little hanging cabinet with see through doors. It was originally a v. dark wood. I am constantly picking up little shelves and cabinets like that at my favorite thrift store.

I also have a hoard of little religious statues from the thrift store. I spray painted the cabinet gold and then painted the inside sky blue. I put the metallic blue paper on the insides of the doors so you couldn't see through them any more. I had some small canvases that fit just perfectly inside the doors and used those for Saint Lucy and the Nino d'Atocha.  Then I glued the drawers in at that angle so you could read them.

I love shrines too, and the first ones I made were in Altoids tins. I felt better starting smaller.  And picking a theme helps me filter what objects and images I'll use. I named my shrine (How Far, Heaven?) to give myself a concept to work with beyond just "religious box."  I added the leopard print, stars and glitter to make it especially my own. 

Wow! Thanks for sharing so much!  I have hoarded a few containers that I think would be good for shrines and I guess if I think I can come up with an appropriate theme, I could start.  I think I'm afraid of ruining something cool, so maybe something like an Altoid tin would be a good start.  Or a cereal box.   Wink

Hehe soooo gorgeous! I think i like Woody the best.. Helmut just looks like a lazy bludger! LOL

Haha!  I agree about Helmut - he seems like he thinks he's too deep and serious to work or be nice.  I'm partial to Stanley, myself.  Kiss

Oh, I love those! I plan on using some of that fabric to make soem aprons for christmas gifts.

I'm sure your aprons will be a big hit!  I took these (+ some more) to my first craft faire yesterday and sold out!  Prepare to get requests after the recipients show off their new aprons.  Cheesy

I was right! I do really like this!  Thanks so much for adding bigger photos.  Was the cupboard, already a cupboard?  What did you change about it (other than the decoration)?  I've been enamored of shrines and wanting to try to make one for a few years, but I lose confidence before I even start, so I want to know all the details of what it was before and how you made it so awesome.  I don't expect you to share all that, I'm just explaining why I'm so curious about the origins of the parts.   Embarrassed

Your project gave me an out loud chuckle on a busy day.  Thanks!  And thank you also for not splitting your beaver.  Ahem.
3810  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Birthday Tiara For my Darling who turned 2 on 5th Nov on: November 07, 2008 08:34:41 AM
Adorable as usual!  I may have to start making birthday tiaras for myself every year now. Hmmmm.

What can you tell about that fabulous lotus candle holder on the cake?  Is it typical?
