Boxes in Progress Update

These few photos may prove to be more confusing than they are helpful, but that’s sort of the way it goes in my mind too. A little of this, a little of that - flitting between projects. Sometimes I find myself standing in the middle of the room trying to make up my mind which way to go.

This first photo is of elements that I have been tweaking for three different boxes. Gosh, it would be wild if they were all in the same one, wouldn’t it? It’s hard to choose a favorite because the airplanes I have had for ages; they came from a party store. Before I got my hands on them, they were red, yellow and blue. I think they were supposed to be prizes for little boys, but I knew someday, some way, I would come to need them.


But the Chinese lanterns were a find – let me tell you. I have been searching and searching for just this type. In these colors. In this size. It was pure luck that I found them. A very happy happenstance.

Here is one of my boxes that doesn’t look like much now. Hopefully, one day soon, it will blossom into something worth viewing.


So how do you spend your days? I wonder if you are more settled than me. I took these photos in mid-mushroom transformation. I’d like to say it’s a first, but I had a feeling of déjà vu.


I have definitely painted mushroom tops before.


Let’s see, so far we have Chinese lanterns, shells, toy airplanes and now mushrooms. Yeah, it’s getting’ kinda strange in this here house.


And lastly, the box with the doors that open in the middle. There’s definitely something going on there.


Now if I can just wrap up the work on these babies, maybe I can get back to this


and this.



  1. Hi Ginger,

    Isn't getting "sidetracked" fun? I love it.

    Happy Weekend.


  2. Ginger, you always make the most WONDROUS things!

  3. Heh, I think the first pic could show props for an Indiana Jones themed box :oD

  4. Looking forward to meeting you at Hugglets Ginger! (Must get me one of those leather thimbles with the little metal disc, it looks like 'a good idea').
