the pocketbook

i fashioned out of a plain wooden box with handle, which i found in the clearance aisle at wal-mart...[doncha love those clearance aisles?!] i've never made one of these before, though i have always admired them from afar... so i gave it a try & this is what turned out:

{p.s.," j.s." should be looking out for this in the post shortly! xo, m.a. :) }

addendum: i'm submitting this for inspire me thursday's functional art...when i originally posted this i wasn't even aware that this was this week's challenge! how cool is that???Posted by Picasa

    judy>>>so glad you like it [bec. soon you'll get to see it in person]!!!!!!

    pauline>>>thank you for your sweet words...the various art challenges as well as my own art/craft projects literally keep me going, giving me reason for being, you know...that's why i do them!

    i have art journals of various sizes & these are where i keep my artwork (the flat ones anyway)... & the freestanding ones, like the pocketbook {though this one will be sent to judy in tomorrow's mail}, those are displayed somewhere in the studio or about the house...

    i hadn't thought about the justBe table...but i am now!!!!!! thanks for reminding me!!!!!

    have a super thursday!!!!!
