I had my daughter asking to borrow the scarf the second she saw it! Pinkleo really spoiled me. It's hard to belive that was her first woodburning project-trust me,it's even cooler in person.

Aw...bookstorebabe, you flatter me so.
Thank you for your kind words.  Smiley

I am so glad y'all like the scarf;  Undecided it was the item I was most worried about.

Ah,thanks! I kept finding words to use for the magnets, and couldn't stop! I think it's funny we each sent the other a book and bookmark. Cheesy And I want everybody to know I didn't paint the little wooden box-someone had already painted it-I found it at the thrift store and had to rescue it. I just decorated the top.I wanted to recipe box to look like something one of the wyrd sisters would have herself. The "recipe" is copied from my Shakespeare shirt.
That was the first time I've done an altered book.The first page with the heart has a fortune about how" the time is right for a friendly chat to lead to romance."
I'm glad you like your stuff. It was fun making things for you. You were an awesome swapper!

Oh, the altered book is my fave item.  You really can't show the detail well in pics.  Your book has inspired me to try a hand at altered books.

That altered book is fabulous!!! Cheesy  I love the Bottom glassware, too. 

However, I must cringe at the West Side Story/R+J book!  That's the same one we had to read in 9th grade!  Sad

I spent a lot of time on it, and loved every minute. I couldn't quite bring myself to use a real book, but the blank one worked okay. I put bronze paint over the black cover, and used crumpled plastic wrap to daub all over. And I cut a ton of pages out to make room for the added thickness, and I should have cut out more.
I'm going to make another one sometime. I've accumulated enough paper scraps to fill a couple of small zippered plastic blanket bags! I hope you try one yourself-it's addictive!

"However, I must cringe at the West Side Story/R+J book!  That's the same one we had to read in 9th grade!  Sad"
I know what you mean-it was 10th grade Macbeth for me-that class ruined shakespeare for me for years! But I found the double book at Half Price Books, and it was quirky enough I had to pick it up. Did the teacher make you compare the two?

I happened to see the Shakespeare box on the Miscellaneous projects board and followed the link. It's a great idea for a swap. I must remember to check back here for cool ideas to steal admire platonically.  Cheesy
