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.

RA Pocket Shrine 267/? – HooRay [And Hooray Indeed]

A huge big thank you to all readers here for their prompt and shopping-happy reaction on yesterday’s charity flash sale. Even without prior notice, orders came pouring in within minutes of publishing my blog post. Kate’s tags and RAngels were hot sellers, with all but one, single tag snapped up last night. A huge massive…

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…
