Happy Monday!  Are you snow bound, I am Smiley from millan.net and we are expecting more.  Well, I shouldn’t say we are actually snow bound because I probably could make it out to the main roads. The question is, do I really want to . . .Smiley from millan.net  So I’ll stay inside, sipping on my coffee (hmmmmm Baileys?) and stay where it’s warm.

I got this wild hair to finish up a project I started around Christmas.  I meant for it to be a Christmas present but time got away and it just sat on the shelf.  For some reason today I felt compelled to finish it Smiley from millan.net


I had this idea to make a flower out of some new May Arts Ribbon, but the style of flower called for wired ribbon.  I ended up stitching a small seam down one side, ran some craft wire through it, and pulled it all together to make the flower.  The center is an old button I had in my stash.


I took on the ladies from the Graphic 45 Fashionista collection and put it in a memory frame for some added embellishment.    The back layer on the top was made with Spellbinders™ Labels One.  I know it’s hard to tell in the photos, but I added some feet on the bottom of the box with black wood beads from an old necklace.


Another vintage button from my stash on the inside.

I haven’t decided who is going to get the box, but my youngest is definitely a creature of fashion.  She also told me recently that I never make anything for her.

Thanks for stopping by today and remember  . . .  life is short, enjoy the adventures of the day!
