In my last blog, I showed a bunch of odds & ends of things that I was thinking about using for who knows what. Since then, I’ve been busy with plumbers, snow and real life. A few days ago I started playing with one of the smushed cups and, since I always make things in fours, pulled out at random three other treasures. Yesterday and today I started making lidded boxes for all of them. I decided on the lidded boxes rather than clamshell just because they are faster and I have a lot of other stuff that needs to be done.
Here is where things are now, papers and bookcloth chosen, sizes determined, Davey board cut, bottom trays made and tops covered.
I didn’t have a paper chosen for the horseman when I took the pictures and I changed the paper for the dancers at the last minute. I hope to finish all of them on Saturday. If I do, I’ll post the finished creations here. Think I’ll try to sell them on Etsy first, as winter is very slow at local galleries here in snow country.
