Le Cirque stacking box

Bought this plain wooden Halloween stacking box @ Michaels after Halloween.  I made it into a circus themed trinket box.  I had to scraplift a couple of cool ideas from Susie @ Creative Cafe and now it looks really good!  Thanks Susie for all your inspiration!

The Steampunk Cabinet

Another Goodwill find, transformed by G45 Steampunk Debutante and DCWV Tattered Time.  I painted the cabinet black on the outside, added a lot of paper, stamps and glitter, then used an old crystal clock dome (face, cover?) filled with some gears and clock junk (clunk?) and glued that on the front.  Inside it has a corkboard for notes and shelves for all kinds of steamy things!!  I still have a bit of finishing to do, but I like it so far.

BBC America Sherlock

Getting ready for Media West convention!  Here's one of my first creations.  I bought this frame at Goodwill - I love the little swivel foot detail.  It reminds me of one of those stand up mirrors, only it's just 6 inches tall.

Another mini topper!

I painted this one with metallic craft paint, the gold ribbon is really streamers I picked up off the theater floor when we saw Hairspray  in the West End last time I was in London.  I added a keyhole, a feather, some lace and brads.  I like the way it turned out!
