The idea was that with just a few minutes devotion to this task, by year’s end my house would be an organizational thing of beauty. All possessions and things that had lived past their prime will have been replaced. Perhaps many of you want to start the year with a clean slate that involves getting rid of stuff. I find no joy in this endeavor, even though current magazines tell us otherwise.

A handmade decoupage box, designed for a new baby with early schoolbook cutouts. It is meant to hold all the things you treasure: a first lock of hair, the hospital bracelet. The box is meant to be interactive as the baby grows; find the bunny under the tree, a flower, the butterfly, etc. The box is lined with navy blue paper dotted with tiny stars. Each box is unique in size and design.

My latest design:
A Wedding Invitation Platter 16×20 inches
All the printed material tells
the story of your wedding and preserves it
under glass. The cutout designs replicate
the flowers at your wedding.
