The first one is a little gift box with a lamp post and and a bench on top. This is one of those times that I get an idea and I can't shake it, so I just have to try it. I felt like making a lamp post, and this is it. I've used a lot of my favourite Tim Holtz tissue tape here. I LOVE that tape, it's so versatile, and one roll lasts like forever!
Here's the bench. Actually, Agnes so wanted to help out, so she made a drawing of a board that she said I could use as a template and she told me to write on the piece of paper that "this board is mommy's forever, but daddy can borrow it sometimes". Isn't that terribly sweet of her?
Here's the top of the lamp post. It was actually the Tim Holtz bauble inside that inspired me to make it.
Speaking of Agnes - here's a photo if her at age 1.5, with her auntie Anna. Agnes was so tiny back then! It's hard to believe now three years later, when she is running around on long skinny legs with pigtails in her hair. They just grow so fast!
Oh, and by the way, the photos of the gift box were taken last week. It was still greenish outside then. Now it's all covered in really thick snow, and it's freezing cold. And I love it! I just wish they could plough the roads a little better, because it's no fun driving to and from work in all this snow!
