I don't know how it is with everyone but I like to be able to move around the house with my craft projects. I call it mobile crafting. Sometimes in the living room or outside on the porch. I came up with this for my smaller polymer projects.

It is a glass shadow box I picked up from the $1 store.

I did a reverse glass painting with a image I found on yahoo and decopaged behind it and lined the inside lid with felt.

With the glass on top I can work right on it and keep all of my supplies or extra clay inside!
Before I forget that's not a tail on her it some flames shooting out from abound her feet. I didn't like it but was stuck with it after the glue dried.
I' think I'll make one for my mom for her mobile crafting.
Thanks for looking. Grin

thats a great idea!
i'd so do something similar, but my clutzyness tells me
glasss + me = bad

i converted one of those lap beading things,
i took the top off, lined it with waxed paper,
and keep the tools in the side drawers
and i keep the whole thing covered with another peice of waxed paper

oh and thats a freken awesome paint job you did!
skillz!

OK, I was going to do something similar to turn a picture frame into a work surface, but I may have to steal this idea for myself, I craft all over, from my bed, to the dining room, to the big ottoman in the livingroom LOL. Sometimes I bring small projects with me when we visit the inlaws or something, so this would be perfect! Smiley

oohhh.. that's a really good idea! I also tend to mobile-craft, but i also frequently leave things wherever i've been working. it could probably be solved if i just had a specific spot where i kept everything, but I always want to work whenever (and wherever) inspiration strikes. (This leaves me running around getting everything all the time, and aggravates my family when I leave it there!)  I should probably make one of these. Thanks for the awesome idea!

You are my hero. I'm definitely a "mobile crafter" and up until now I thought the only solution was carrying around an old plastic box lid. I love this idea, and I hope you don't mind if I use it.

really cute idea, i am a mobile crafter too Smiley

for even greater mobility if you leave the glass un-decorated you can stick the glass w/polymer clay project on it right into the toaster oven/oven!!
