a pink jewelry box and an enamel refrigerator drawer:
some peices of fabric with embroidery and instructioons on them, some pretty blue thread and a scrap of a crocheted piece of linen...
silver Dennison stars and silver glass glitter
brass paper fasteners, otherwise known as brads in the original cute little box:
2 little flower frogs and a wee little nickel (?) scotty dog
Just LOOK at the colors of these silk and velvet leaves...pink, cream, white, gold and pale green...YUMMY! Oh, and there's some pink ribbon, too...
Here's a picture with some of it , including a cool journal-type book
Whew! And it all cost only about $40. Not bad, right? And, I had fun...definitely a good break! Thanks for hangin in there with me.!

So, that's what I did. I picked up the peices of my broken heart and made art out of them.

Well, then I was on a roll and made the two above. Seriously...for those off you who, like me, suffer from the sad and debilitating syndrome called something like "if-I-cant-see-immediate-results-forget-it-I'm-not-doin'-it-itis", this project took hardly any time at all! Once I got going, it took maybe 20 minutes apiece. I also, decided to forgo the cool but kinda unnecessary step of the melted plastic liner. But, do go check out the tutorial and give it a try! It's fun!

I am having technical problems...my house computer won't connect to the garage computer where all my pictures are stored (don't ask why we have a computer in the garage, cuz that would require an answer that I am definitely NOT equipped to answer!). So, I can't get pictures, view pictures, upload pictures....sigh. What a pain. I"ll hopefully get it worked out soon. I have some super cute projects to share with you!
