Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

with the sizzix paper clips die cut.
okay, i have to say i am in serious need of a sizzix patch. i am addicted to this machine. i love having the control to make what i want, when i want the color, and texture i want. last week when i ran up to redlead they had a whole bunch of new sizzix. i wanted to buy about 5 of them, but i restrained myself. i then had to run back up to redlead a few days ago and the paper clip die kept calling my name. i told myself.....okay if you come up with an original idea, not the obvious one, you can buy it. well, my muse must have really panicked thinking she was not going to get a new toy so she came up with an idea within seconds and whispered it in my ear. the next several pics are what i have been working on the last day and a half. when you lift the 'door' on this one it says she always had a secret crush on the groom'.

I LOVE your work! I never thought I would get into this kind of thing, but I'm making myself a "self soothe" box and have decided to decorate a plain box to really make it mine. Any tips you have would be really appreciated!
