Fueled by the scent of rubber shavings....

My girlfriend's an artist, but she doesn't craft.  So, I figured that she might like a nice gift the next time she comes down - and what does an artist lack sometimes?  Inspiration!

Taking the theme, I got the idea that words, scents, lust, and love can be inspiring.

The Front:

Cutting up an old/water damaged paperback novel.  (Ian Rankin's Tooth and Nail.)  Everything in the box is scavenged and recycled - even the photo of me is from an old student id card!  The nail polish is something I never use - it's a bottle from a trip to China, and I'm afraid to use it on my nails - it is kind of pretty, although - clear nail polish with glitter bits and heart shapes it in.

The Inside:

Contents include stickers, a pewter ring, two random number generators and a matchbook notebook from the novel cover.  Not pictured: a mint mini-pillow, and a small pencil.

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.
