My altered double decker matchbox

I had so much fun making this. Quite challenging to make, as well. In the end I was satisfied with it. I don't like how the first drawer turned out because it is not as clean as I wanted it to be. The inside of the drawers are lined with cloth that I had for long time.

My stick pins

Here are a few stickpins I made. I love the flower stickpins as they remind me of spring. I hope you like them too :)

My Altered Birdcage

I got inspired altering my birdcage that I bought from Michael's last year. I wish I bought more as they were really cheap - $1.00 each.
The cage was originally red and I decided to use white and blue just because blue is one of my favorite color. I first painted the cage with white paint, then I used to shades of blue. I just dabbed the blue paints over the dried white paint. It's sort of gave the blue-cloudy sky effect on the cage. I love how the colors were combined ;)
I made the swing out of a chain and a plastic "twig". I actually just made the twig out of the stem from a bunch of flowers that I got from the dollar store. I like that it's bendable and covered with plastic so it was easy for me to make the arch of the swing. Other materials I used were ribbons and I attached rhinestones on them.
All of the flowers I used were made by me, as well. I would have to look for a tiny oval shaped stones that I can make into eggs for the nest.
I had fun making this. Let me know what you think.

So tomorrow, actually, later this morning coz it's already past midnight , I will be heading out to get myself a tripod for my camera (it's actually my sister's), so I can start taking videos for Youtube. I am quite scared to do it, to be honest  as I've never done it before. I mean I did post a video of my son, but not like doing tutorials or showing my crafts, kwim??
I hope I'd do fine with the vids that I'll be doing....Ack! Quite nerve-racking. wish me luck :)
