RA Pocket Shrine 274/? – Peachy

Did I say somewhere that I had sworn not to buy new mint tins anymore? Well, I was shopping the other day and was in this shop called “Flying Tiger”. I have bought tins in there before, the results of which were dishy and fishy, as well as smily and angling . Once again  I…

RA Pocket Shrine 273/? – Lavender

The “5 Item Challenge” has had *just* the effect I have needed. Thanks to the pressure of improvisation, I have felt inspired to get down to shrining. Kate’s challenge items were responsible for shrines 266 and 270. And in round 3 of the challenge, which was opened to new participants, I received an envelope with…

RA Pocket Shrine 272/? – The Lair of the Silver Fox

Silver Fox? Sounds familiar, right? I recently made a silver fox shrine that was sold in the Ukraine Aid fundraiser. It was picked up pretty quickly, and as a result, I was approached bts whether I would consider making another silver fox shrine in return for an identical price to go into the fundraiser pot.…

RA Pocket Shrine 268/? – Father of the Year

Four-day-streak with yet another shrine. But before that another word about the charity sale. First of all: All buyers (up to time of writing) should have received an automated notification from Etsy by now that the items are on their way to them. Both Kate and I have dispatched our items so far. Kate’s tags…

RA Pocket Shrine 266/? – Silver Fox

The little swap I did with Kate the other day, was truly inspiring. Restriction can often lead to inspiration, and so it was with the 5 item swap. As a reminder, this is what Kate sent to me. While I settled on the black cardboard, the fabric swatch, the gold leaf and the dagger and…
