Charm Swap...

This is the first Charm swap I've been in.  We are to make two sets of 4 being both sets of charms are different.
I made this first charm with a bottle cap and Glossy Accents and watch parts and a stamped image in the background.  I made six of them.  Will be working on my other set pretty soon.  Not sure what I want to make for the next set of charms.

Altered Books

Front of My Altered Book

Sign In Pages

My Tea Bag Folding Page
I was two "Altered Book Swaps" years ago. What you do, you get some used books (hardcover books) and you "Alter them"  You can cut a hole in the center of the cover called a "niche" (sp?) Make a theme with your Altered book.  I like tea and pears and stuff... So I choose Tea for my theme.  You make sign in pages and then you do a couple pages of your them and can also alter the pages ripping them distressing them add things to the pages... sky and creativity is all up to you.  Then you get some friends who start a swap, you send your book around to the others and they have to add to your theme of the book, can do as many pages they like.  Until the whole book has been passed around and worked in my swap members your book will come back to you all filled with different art work and creativity.  My other book was a Christmas Altered book, this is where we used Old Christmas cards that were sent in the holidays and we altered the cards and such and put them in the pages of the book.  Adding embellishments and what everyone just felt like adding to their pages.  I hope enjoy.

Altered Cigar Box

I've been working on this Altered Cigar box for a while and have it finally completed.  It sits on our coffee table and inside we store battiers for the tv remotes...lol  I think it's pretty nice and gives a talktive piece when family and friends come to the house. lol  Hope you enjoy my pictures and thanks for looking.

The first pic of the Altered Cigar box is the top, Middle pic is the front bottom half where the closure is and the third pic is the inside of the box.   I used Magic Leafing and Luminue paints and I just love pear stamps, they were unmounted so I'm not sure where they came from.  The pears on top of the box ... they are made with UTEE and beads and I also painted the pears and leaves.  Hope you enjoy.

My Shoe,,,

I've been working on this Shoe Swap, and have sent it out.  Here was the final result.  I can't remember, but this shoe template was on a blog and I can't for the life of me think of where I saw this at.  Anywho, here is a front and side view of the shoe, I put some lace and ribbon in the shoe.
