Decorate your Deflecto drawers

Today the Designer Crafts Connection is having a blog hop sponsored by Deflecto - they make lots of crafter-friendly office supplies, including desktop frames, caddies and containers.

They gave me this cute cube of clear mini drawers that will be perfect for storing my rolls of washi tape. And what better way to decorate them - with washi tape, of course!

Etched glass shadow box

I've been eyeing every glass surface in my house a bit differently these days, looking for things to accent with etchall® etching crème. First I tried some glass candle jars, but the etching came out too faint to photograph well. Some types of tempered glass (like Pyrex or candle jars) that are thicker to withstand heat won't etch very deeply.

So I kept looking and my eyes finally landed on this cute little shadow box with a glass lid. I have a small 5"x7" mixed media piece inside that I made a while back - the center part is an ocean sunset, framed by layers of Lutradur and layered on top of a painted journal page.

Dimensional scrapbooking

Here's a dimensional scrapbooking project I created recently for a craft class I taught at the library.

A shadowbox is a fun way to preserve a memory, commemorate an event or celebrate whatever pretty things you like.
