I hope I'm putting this in the right spot - if not, let me know and I'll move it!

Anyway, for the Organize Me Swap, I decided I just had to decoupage a box with little compartments for my partner.  I didn't get a before picture, but imagine a wooden box with red and green faux-victorian holiday people frolicking on the top and you're close (who knew that Pier One made mulling spices?)  Anyway, she likes red/white/black combo and Celtic, so I went with both of those.  I bought a pendant that looked Celtic (to me, anyway) to glue to the top as decoration and removed the little gold latch on the front to be replaced by a painted wooden bead.

It looks 110% better in my not-so-humble opinion. Smiley

Love it!  What does it say on the inside?

Thanks!  It's a note from me to my partner, wishing her happy organizing, along with the swap info/date. Smiley  There was the nutritional info or something on the inside and I thought it needed to be covered and provided a lovely little place for me to put a note!

You did a great job on this. I bet it smells nice from all the spices.

This looks gorgeous.  Two of my favorite things combined, wood and celtics.  Nice job.
