  OK I made this cabinet for a personal swap and think it is cool but will add a few tiny Poly clay things (the masks, faces on the 2 little drawers in the front not in the pic) that are baking and a few little things. It is a melting pot I think of cool, odd, strange and just freaking weird Smiley She loves tea so that is where the little tea idea came in to play....
what do you really think?  REALLY  good, bad or whatever....


==================================================

Now I am done, I feel I can't do anymore or it would be too much...I love this so much this is the first one I have done and completed and am happy with Smiley I so love this box I call
 " The Eclectic Karma"
NOW, What do you think.......













this pic was before the door was finished...

 
OK, I added to the back to it just needed something so this is it...Cant do anymore and it is going postal or I will just keep messing with it Wink

That's really neat, it looks like you spent a long time on it putting everything together.

I think when you make something like this, it becomes very very personal ( for the recipient, not so much the creator).  There are elements I love about it  ( climbing elves, mini gifts) and some not so much ( black fur), but then you had only your friend in mind when you made it.  I say that because I think its important not to be influenced by others opinions on this.  You know your friend so I'm sure its perfect for her.  All that said, I can see this easily selling in my favorite crazy crafty boutique where everything is far too expensive for my taste, so I'm sure its a winner Smiley

I adore this!
I love works that keep me looking and looking, and then when I come back for yet another look, I still find something new.
Its like a story come to life.

Yup I think the additional stuff you did on the back makes the images really work well together...that'll be one lucky recipient.
