Jack on the Box

Jack on the Box

Hello Readers. I have had an idea in my head for a long time to do a jack-in-the-box type decoration...well, I finally sat down and did one! I am a big fan of the vintage style and really wanted to do one in that white and old tinsel theme. I started with a little star paper mache box, a vintage satin christmas ball, and some antique sheet music...and just started putting it together, really without any specific plan in mind. Well, here is the finished product. I really like it and I put it on my Flickr and was surprised by all the compliments there! Yeah!! It was fun to make, and I really like this style, so don't be surprised if you see more items in this style coming from this gal. I have put this up for sale in my Etsy shop, so if you are so inclined....

I just checked the Etsy site and they are not quite up and running yet, but it should be soon. I am amazed by all that they had to do to transfer all that information from the old Etsy to the new. Wow! It would seem like such an insurmountable task. I am really looking forward to the new site. From what I saw during the sandbox trial and the walk through, it is going to look so good with all the bigger pics and the new layout AND I am really excited that they streamlined the buying process and added the shopping carts!!! Yeah! It should be so much easier for buying. I know that a lot of people were confused by the old method and were turned off. If you were one of those people, please stop back and have another try, I think you will be pleasantly surprised!!

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.
