i've been busy assembling for the last few days. i just listed the items above on etsy (click here for a link to my shop), and am going to bring them down to the shop tomorrow for public viewing.
believe it or not, i am completely out of items to make any more game piece boxes, and the crosses aren't looking too good, either. i think over 2 years of making these kinds of assemblages has taken their toll on my inventory of objects. i have been scouring the antique malls, etsy, and ebay for the stuff i need to renew my stash. and it's been quite frustrating, really. i even drove up to fort collins this past weekend (thanks john for the company!xoxo) to see if i might be luckier there. and i came back muy empty-handed. so i guess what i am saying is that if you want a box, better get one now because the larder is looking pretty bare.
im thinking of maybe going to the midwest this spring or summer on a buying trip. i was always lucky with stuff when i lived in iowa and missouri. maybe it's the same deal there? could the world of antiques and junk actually be running out of stuff??
ok. time to get myself out of my PJs and into some sort of working mode. oh, and i guess i still haven't had breakfast!!
