Pastels and Jewelry

Hello Everyone!
This post was supposed to be posted a while ago, but again...I am a slacker!
But if you follow this blog at all, you knew that already.

Anyway...I have made a new item for my Etsy store that I am rather proud of.
My rendition of a Jewelry Box.
You can use it for just about anything though...
It just reminded me of a jewelry box I had when I was young.
It's made out of all cardboard and card stock, 
along with a bunch of embellishments.
I'd love to hear how you like it...let me know in the comments below.
And as always, you can click on each picture to see them bigger.

Here it is from the front view.
There are 5 drawers that you can hide anything away in.


Here it is with everything opened.
The drawers, the top and the side doors.


A picture of more of the top part.


Here is the top closed where I embellished with rhinestones and flowers.
There are also clear acrylic butterflies in each corner of the lace that I added.


Here's the back...as always, finished too.




Now on to the nail fail that I did.
I, again, saw a great picture on Pinterest of nail art that I wanted to do...
but when I tried it, it did not come out the way I wanted.



I think it came out ok, but the light nails you just can't see the dots...
so I totally didn't like it.
So I decided to start over and here is what I came up with.


I stuck with the pastel colors for the Easter Holiday.
I just went with doing the tips and then did a broken line under each color.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Would love to know what you think.

Take care.
