Moulin Rouge Ready!!

The time has finally arrived and I am so
excited to be heading out of here before dawn tomorrow morning!!
See all these boxes?  They are all the kits for the class I will be teaching at the event.  The boxes on the right are finished dolly's I am taking for vendor night but all those boxes on the left are kits.  There is going to be some fun artsy fartsy stuff going on!!

 
My sweet traveling companion is wondering where her stuff will fit in the car.  I'm not so worried about her "stuff"... more about where I will fit her!!  I might have to duct tape her to the roof of the car.  The weather calls for rain all morning tomorrow so I sure hope she wears something plastic!
I decided to join a couple of the swaps that are taking place at the event.  One is the bijoux jewelry box swap.  We were to find an old jewelry box and embellish it as we see fit.  Then we filled it with all things lovely and vintage.

I can't show you the stash of goodies on the inside but here is a peek at what I did to the outside of the box.  Think my swap friend will know who made it?


This box was such a find.  It came with the original key so the lock can be used.  Love it!!


A little something different I've been playing with.  Sweet little girls made in to lovely little necklaces.  I had so much fun creating these.  

I found myself heading back to my roots for this event.  Since it is Spring time...or at least I am hoping for it to be soon... I made some wonderful bunnies for vendor night. I haven't made bunnies in ages...but that is where my doll making began many ~ many years ago.  It was a nice change of pace and I am tickled with how they turned out.  

Have a great rest of the week...I'll be back next week with photos!!
