Halloween box

Thought I'd share one of my Halloween projects with you.
I took a small drawer from a old jewelry box and created this Halloween treat.

Amazing Girlfriend. I love all the detail. It just boggles my mind how similar we craft, I can just see your process, and know why you picked what you picked......except you're much better than me ;o) I think we could probably collaborate on something sometime and you'd never know two different people made it. I don't know if you'd take that as a compliment or not.

Anyway, I hope you're having a great weekend and that every day you're feeling better than the one before.

Big Hugs,
Meri
