And the Winner Is…

Winner!

Congratulations Sukogirl! You are the winner of the long anticipated Toy Box Giveaway!

Toy Box Front

I am happy to send a finally finished Toy Box out into the world. This project really got the best of me over and over again. The objects I was working with do not match my general aesthetic and the greatest challenge was to incorporate all of the items in a way that looked like I had created this piece.

Toy Box Back - Slightly Closed

This morning I finished Toy Box by completing the back. The back of the box had so many reincarnations – but I am so happy with this final choice. As a former librarian, I love to catalog EVERYTHING. I started cataloging the items I include in my boxes, when I created my very first box Small Objects of Importance.

As I noted in the accompanying post:

I am fascinated with the act of cataloging items and with the look of specimens and exhibits. There is something interesting about objects being defined without emotion but being held as important enough to preserve them and sometimes to display them. I decided to include a list of factual titles for each one of the objects, but I added no more information. I leave it to the viewer to make their own story, or to research an item’s significance

Well, sukogirl, I hope you or someone you know enjoys Toy Box – just email me with your mailing address and I will figure out how to package up this fragile item so it has a safe journey from the craftarium to you!

    I’m sure the box will be exceptionally well-loved because it was so WANTED.

    If you want to think a little about the idea I posed earlier, check http://picasaweb.google.com/rockmastermike/AstroBestof for a little inspiration.

    Hope your vacation was stimulating!
