Here it is at last...

My craft desk is drying, so I'm using the opportunity to tak pics of it before I cram it with supplies! The lower picture is my computer desk that I also built. Now I don't usually build furniture, but shopping for a comp desk was a nightmare! Wires showing everywhere, not enough paper storage, ugh! So I dug into my hubby's power tools (fun!) and went to town. And of course the craft desk just HAD to match....

A Work in Progress...

This will be part of an Old World Shoppes collective display being sent to Etsy offices. The message, written by Carey and Irina, is intended to be a playful adaptation of old English documents. I burned the message into artist's canvas, and then tea -stained it to give it an aged look. I think I might use a little fabric stiffener to 'scroll' it up a bit....

Something from my sold section! A multi Layer pop-up in some metallic cardstock....

Sold:...This 'stained glass look' orange butterfly is both on the front and inside. Made from tissue paper, the wings are designed to both catch the light and appear like they are floating.

My Latest...

This is the main reason why I've not posted too many new things on etsy! My supersized craft desk is just about half way done. Hardware, sanding, and finish left to go, and then I will have a personally designed place to really get creative. It will match the computer desk I've already built, with a storage/window seat unit to come. After that comes the fun part: shopping from etsy for neat stuff to decorate it!
