I was delighted to see the shadowboxes that my Dad brought me from Calgary. There's only one in the picture since I was in a hurry and I shot the other picture at an angle :P
My Dad apologized for the state of the frame, saying I'd want to repaint it. I said I wouldn't repaint it, it's already shabby chic!
I've decided that I will do four shadow box scenes (this is in addition to the pioneer kitchen scene, and the small white shadowbox which will be a book nook) for the September Show and Sale.
I plan on doing a Wedding Scene, Beach Scene, Nursery Scene and Christmas Scene. I plan to sell customized shadowboxes to celebrate special times, such as a wedding, new baby or graduation. I will print out business cards and give them out at the Show and Sale in September, and also sell them on Etsy.
I was thrilled when my Dad told me that he enjoys making shadowboxes and room boxes, and that he would like to make many more, but he doesn't plan to sell them himself. He'll give them to me to sell at a fair price, he only wants to recoup the cost of his building supplies!
I was stunned and touched by such a generous gesture, although it's not unlike my Dad. He has always been generous with his wife, three kids, and others.
I'm also very excited about this as a potential way to earn more money in miniature related stuff. I think I'll be able to sell most of them locally! Although I will have them in my Etsy Shop.
I'd like to extend a warm welcome to Conny, my newest follower.
