WOYWW #104 and the 2nd Anniversay Partay!!!! Grungy Monday 09

Happy Anniversary to all the other WOYWWers that participate here at Julia Dunnits blog Stamping Ground! This week we are celebrating the anniversary by PIF-ing...swapping gifts. I only joined about 6-7 months ago but I have had a blast participating in the blog snoop each Wednesday and look forward to seeing every ones desks and projects they have made. Check it out it might be something you would be interested in doing! WARNING: it can be very addictive!!

My desk is an absolute disaster tonight and there is no way I am going to show it off. Truth of the matter is I couldn't get a picture that wasn't fuzzy or crappy looking so I just decided to show off what I have been doing this week instead. I think something might be wrong with my camera...oh no!!

Remember this house that I showed everyone last week that I was going to alter? Well I finally got the blasted thing done yesterday after a lot of futzing around trying this or that out. I am really pleased at how the house turned out!!

This picture was taken with the same camera under normal light and I don't think it does it justice color wise. The papers are all from Tim Holtz paper stashes Lost and Found and Crowded Attic. The dies and some Ideaology used are also Tim Holtz. The rest of the stuff, buttons, flowers, ribbons,etc are from my stash.

Here is an up close of the side of the the house. I used the Sewing Room die on both sides cause I like it and I thought it would look good...don't think I am lazy...just coordinated!







For this fob I used a swivel clasp and a button I had and attached various dangling things to it. Cool huh! Since it had the short little bottle I thought it needed a little something else on that side!









Here is an up close of the drawer fronts. I used some Accent Glaze and gave some of the buttons on the paper dimension and then used it to adhere buttons and pins to the front.




Anyway that is it. What do you think? Let me know what I could have done different or better. What am I going to do with it? I think I am going to use it to hold some of my hand sewing stuff like a box of pins, a tape measure, a few buttons etc.

I am going to go now to Stamping Ground and sign in then fix me something to drink and surf around to the other blogs to see what is on other peoples desks this week. Thanks for dropping by!

I decided after posting this for WOYWW to also use this as my Grungy Monday 09 over at Studio L3. I think it fits the Shabby Chic criteria that the challenge was about and I didn't get it finished until Tuesday! Linda Ledbetter sponsers a weekly challenge to anyone interested in learning to use/do Tim Holtz techniques.
