This New Year's Eve scene in a box frame wasn't on my list of things to do today at all. But sometimes that's when the most fun happens, right?
It all started when I had the urge to make inchies: something I've not done for well over five years. So I shrugged, pulled out some of my paper stash and toolsand before long I'd completed three. I named the set 'Social butterflies'.
While making them, I recalled the white resin frames Kitty and Kat Miniatures sent me in her last swap box, and thought they might be a good style to frame them. And while I was thinking about white frames, I wondered if, for a change, I could create a scene within a full-sized frame (something I've done very occasionally in the past and have been meaning to revisit) and possibly use some of the cheap Typo frames I have lurking in the stash cupboard in The Room of Shame.
And I was right on both counts. The final touch was turning the bottom of the frame into a desktop and adding a variety of accessories referencing the fact that today is the last day of 2016.
On that note, this post means that my Daily Dolls' House December 2016 challenge is now officially successfully completed.
My plans to spend the summer break cleaning my house aren't, but I can start focusing on that tomorrow. Or should I say 'next year'? ;-P
Speaking of which, I hope that the best of this year is the worst of your next. And that your year is full of finding joy in the little things.
(Once again, thanks are due to various people for contributing bits that I used in the scene: Kitty and Kat Miniatures also sent me the wooden dream word and the sparkly vase. The stars on the desktop are from the pizza box Sandra sent me. And the bottle I turned into champagne was from a swap with Saana back in 2010...)
