The next several posts will show how I converted this 8" x 11" game box into this beautiful and fun apothecary cabinet. Laura Carson at Artfully Musing provides detailed tutorials where she creates her cabinet, bottles, books and other Halloween projects. Anyone can create something for Halloween and enter her give-away. In the past, Halloween has never inspired me to create - THEN - I saw this tutorial and now, my every waking moment (almost) is spent thinking about what I can put together next !!!
I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.
