The word for the week in the 52 Weeks 52 Words Challenge was ORDER and so I spent the weekend putting my craft space in order! Yesterday, all that was on my desk was an empty space except for a few ATCs and colored pencils. Am I joining the neat team?!
Well, what's that box that you see today? Yesterday, I read Elizabeth's tutorial on how to pick a book to alter (previously, I thought the only factor to consider was cost - it should be cheap!). So, I took down the box labeled "Books to alter" and checked on the books inside.
Yay! They all have sewn signatures! I am one step closer to starting an altered book. Now if only I knew what the next step is. Any links you can point me to?
On the top left shelf, you can see a little Nativity I made.
I used a "Yakult" bottle as a base for each figure. A little old lady sells this probiotic drink to us every week and the pile of plastic bottles was getting too high. I had to think of a way to recycle them. This is what I came up with. Maybe we can sell this as a kit in our shop.
Then, my sketch for the Stretching to Sketch Challenge this week is a mermaid.
And, there's still time to join my giveaway! If you would like a chance to win, just leave me a comment on the original giveaway post (not the WOYWW post).
And, in case you haven't heard, WOYWW is a link party organized by Julia for those of us who like to take a peek at workdesks from all over the world.
