create, publish, pass it on!

By July 30, 2006General

072906_shadow_boxOne of the biggest organizational problems I have is storing projects I have created for the magazine after they have been published.  To keep or not to keep is always the question.  So, I just got my artwork back for the newest issue (August/ September).  I had created a cute little shadowbox frame for the Passion for Fashion article (p.63).  Now that I have it back, I just have no where to put it!  So I thought I would share!  Perhaps you have an oh-so-special spot where it can sit and be enjoyed!  Post here by Tuesday night and  I will randomly pick one of you to receive the shadow box along with a copy of the magazine it is featured in! Thanks for letting me have the opportunity to pass it on!

    I love this. I don’t want to be entered in the draw (I’m in Canada and it would cost you a fortune!) but could not look at this creation without telling you how lovely, fresh, and original it is!!!! I love your work!

    So cute! As an idea for storing your great items, try making a side table out of an old window. Frame it up, add a bottom and add legs. Between the window top and the bottom of the table you will have a nice horizontal “shadow box” to store and showcase your items. You can change out the items seasonally too!

    I’m in Canada so I do not expect that you’d mail something so far, but I do want you to know how lovely your friendship shadow box is. It is fresh, cheerful and would fit in with my craftroom decor. I have the room painted pale yellow and will soon be stamping orange flowers on the wall. Your project is a keepsake for sure!

    Nichole, I was just looking at the latest Paper Crafts Magazine last night and saw your lovely shadow box. Before seeing anything else I thought it was your design because it reminded me of your clean fresh lines of your Simply {ir-RESIST-ible} swap. Love that style! Thanks for sharing in all the ways you do!

    Wow, your shadow box is awesome. It always amazes me all the creativity that some people possess. I just love how this looks. Right now, my craft room is done in all neutral tones and needs a little color to brighten it up for inspiration. I would be honored to display your beautiful shadowbox in my room. Thanks for offering this gorgeous treasure.
