This is a project that I've been working on for the past few weeks but finally finished this week. I've been looking for a way to display all of my whimsies that I've gotten from all the whimsy swaps that I've participated in here on Craftster.  Grin



I took closeups of each partition. Here we go!









More details on my blog! Thanks for looking!

Thank you! Thank you! BUT! You all have to tell me which box is your favorite. I swear, my opinion changes every time I look at it!  Grin

The one with the little flying piggie. That piggie completely makes it work, you know?  Grin

For me its the upper left with the little people guy.  I love them all but that's my favorite.  Not sure why, it just makes me smile the biggest.

Totally awesome!! I love the box with the little people guy. Mostly because I played with little people when I was little. I like the green background too!! You just gave me idea on what to do with my little plastic dinosaur toys.

wow! this is so adorable! I think my favorite is the top box, with the little deer in it... I like the telephone too. that box just makes me happy Smiley

I should make one of these for myself... it would serve a dual purpose, clean out my drawers AND give me some spiffy new wall art, which I am lacking Smiley

I love the Box of Dreams! Each cubby is so artistically put together. I'd be looking at it all the time! It must have taken you quite a while to assemble all the miniatures.

I had a hard time choosing a favorite between the box with the zebra/ninja and the birds! GAH! So hard to choose! okok, the birds! The birds are my favorite! This is going on my wist! Great job!

Pretty cool!  I have to admit, when I saw it, I immediately thought of the pictures from I-spy books.  You'd just have to write a poem with clues in it, and you'd be set!

OMG - I'm so excited. This is my very first post on crafster, I just discovered this site today and the first project I stumble across features a Fisher Price Little People boy. My Etsy avatar is a Fisher Price Little People boy riding his play horse. Too cute. I love this shadow box you've created! Grin

My favorite is the deer and telephone box. This is a wonderful way to display them, I am on a near-constant organizing mission here, and this kind of thing is something I have had planned. Did you attach the whimsies permanently? One of the things that keeps my projects from being realized is I worry I could have used something in a different way down the line.
