It was totally unintentional (and a bit of a struggle), but I recently embraced my inner cutie.

And it happened during the Wicked Children swap, of all things. For this wicked swap challenge, the goal was to take your partners favorite villain and imagine them as a child. After getting my partner (Nooooo) and seeing Godzilla on her list, I knew, almost immediately what I was going to do. But I didnt know it was going evolve from dark and dingy and wicked to

Cutie-patootie.

I knew that Noooo was a big fan of Lilo & Stitch (as am I) and so I knew that I had to recreate the scene where Stitch builds a city out of toys and books and then stomps through it. Just like Godzilla. I mean, how perfect is that?

But I thought I could do it wickedly dark colors, drippy vines maybe some slime somewhere. And then, well then, I decided I wanted pictures of monsters to hang on the walls of Baby Godzillas nursery.

And then, well then, I remembered who my partner was someone who just happens to draw fabulous monsters.

Fabulous and cute. I was happily on the cute train, no turning back.



Even the childs artwork in the lower left corner is from Kira a piece she did when she was a child how perfect is that? (Yes, unbeknownst to Kira, I snatched a bunch of images off of her web site. Of course, once she received her tin, my thievery became undeniably knownst.)

The abc blocks are individually folded paper cubes an idea that was much easier in theory than in execution.



Now I know youre probably wondering how high and low I had to search to find that absolutely perfect monster foot pedestal, but, tut-tut, no searching at all, it was in my stash.

The serendipity of which has dealt a serious blow to any de-cluttering efforts I may have been considering.

All hail to thee, mighty maker of mindblowing mini- marvels!

I really love everything about it and especially the flabbergasting mini-letter-blocks and the incorporation of nooo's art- that is an excellent thought!
And overall, it is just a fabulous idea to make the tin into a childs room- the colors are wonderful and oh.. the result simply makes me go *SQUEAL!*

Thank you, all.

I must admit, while the frustrations of tiny work are not new to me, the mini-blocks are not something I plan to do again any time soon.  Cheesy
