How to... get organized.


Losing your stuff? Never finding your favourite accessory? Keeping jewlery allover the place? As my answer was yes to all of these questions I decided to have a jewlery box (yay!) so today I'm sharing the making with you. You might get some ideas of how to spend a few relaxing hours on your evening...

First step: find your recipient. I chose a wooden box (which smells like the forest).

I painted it with acryl color (french blue tone), found my favourite images to tear from a magazine (Vogue, ahem) and glued them over the paint.

Then, you might want to apply the varnish with windows open or else you will have a laughter attack like me. :-)

I placed the jewlery inside the box (still laughing) ...

... and now I cannot take my eyes off of it.

Have fun creating your own!

It's great...keep your eyes wide open (not half-closed) and laugh ... it's very good for you, but also for me, for us!

Recipient inseamna receptor sau persoana care primeste :P

In orice caz, foarte dragut imbatranita cutiuta :)
