I received from the amazing and wonderful CDEeeek the other day! Check it and prepare to be jealous:



SHE MADE ME A BAKER STREET DOOR. I love it. I love it so much. The little wreath and the poster are removable! Need to put it all up on the wall.

Check out this completely awesome card she sent too:



That's definitely going up on the wall as well.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I couldn't pin that door fast enough!
I love that you can change decorations with the seasons...perhaps an egg wreath around Easter?

Amazing job, what is it made out of?

It's made with a dollhouse door on foam core board. I saw this DIY site with tricks for doing miniature buildings and picked up some of the board to give it a try. I chuckled while making it using the guy's instructions because it was harder than he makes it sound(apparently he was being sarcastic when he said "and you will have lots of fun peeling off the top layer of the foam core"). Maybe it was just lost in translation, hehehe. Or maybe he really does like the peeling part. But once it was off it was a lot of fun.

Here is the site, I am nowhere near the amazing detail this guy can do, but I will keep trying for sure.

Those walls are so fun -I especially love the bit of blue tinsel around the skull art!

And now I can post the set of lovely wearable items that theboywonder crafted for me! Grin


Bottle-cap pins using art from one of my favorite fanartists, Reapersun...


A cord necklace and pendants...


A glass pin revealing my secret...


And a brooch featuring my favorite detective in his death frisbee -I mean, funny hat.


I've always been in awe of resin-set jewelry, and theboywonder's work is flawless! Thank you so much for the lovely items, I'll have a lot of fun wearing my Sherlock swag! Grin

I am so glad that you like everything! I always get ridiculous swap anxiety and this was worse because I couldn't ask you a million questions (which is what I usually do after I get the swap questions)!!!!

The secrecy did add quite a challenge, didn't it? But your cleverness and skill paid off, thank you again!
