My Christmas crafting is all over! My craft area has certainly seen better days.
 I'll show you the last two items I made, for my two sisters. First is this oval hanging plaque:

How many of you have seen this beautiful box in the Victorian Trading Company catalog?

Well, I decided to make a similar one. I used a Whitman candy box. Here's how it turned out:

 inside lid

Now I had better get the room cleaned up so I can get going on Valentine's fun!

Beautiful! The Whitman candy box is spectacular. Your sisters must love their gifts. Can't wait to start crafting some more!


Love your craft room! I was thinking that candy box would make a pretty Valentine box:)
I'm thinking Valentine's Day!

I would say that the spoils are FAR worth the mess! But then again, I'm not the one who will have to clean it up! ;)
