Matchbox Shrines

Instead of eating Easter eggs, I have been making some matchbox shrines. It was our months project with a group I belong to. I just love seahorses and Egypt, as some of you will have gathered by now. I shall soon have made everything possible with those two subjects. One day I will start on the Indian embroidery that I keep wanting to do. I have the materials, I keep buying the beads, I can't find the time, as I'm too busy crafting.. Will power that's what I need next. Stop joining in swaps, and heading off in all sorts of directions. Yes, right, forget Will Power who ever he is. The seahorse nest with the babies inside is a small matchbox. The Egyptian one is a Swan vesta, so easier for my hands to work on. I now need a big display cabinet to put all these things in.

Wonderful MB Shrines Wendy - thank you for taking part in the monthly project. As for the Indian embroidery? maybe we should do this as our next project to give you a kick start LOL! However long it takes, I'm sure it'll be beautiful and look forward to seeing it. Ange.
