|Not as messy as it looks!|
I found a big stock of white tissue paper that I've probably had for a long time, and decided to cover all those little boxes I saved from Christmas. Each time someone got a small technology gift or something else with a clever box, I grabbed it and so this week was the time to either cover them, paint them, or toss them.
I decided to spray paint the tissue paper until it was soggy, then let it dry overnight. I cut or ripped it up into pieces and using ModPodge, covered all the little boxes I could find. For now, I just have them stacked around the studio (space is still at a premium) until I decide to use them as containers.
Even with labels, I have trouble finding things that are not in clear containers, so I'm not sure yet how I will use them. Some will hold finished greeting cards, some will be shipped off with craft packs I am making up, and some will stay around just for decoration.
While I was on my ModPodging projects, I covered a cheap wood frame that I had bought years ago for a future project, so that I could display the photo of my little doggies, both of whom passed away from old age within the last several years. They were my studio companions for a long time and just recently I decided to get another little friend and adopted a Mini-Aussie rescue, a 7-year-old female named Lady. She is what is called a "velcro-dog" so she stays with me every minute. I need that. It gives me someone to talk to besides myself as I work.
