MAY GIVE - AWAY!! Enter here....

A day later than advertised as our main pc crashed yesterday - shouldn't really affect me as I have my own, but it's the master one which drives the network and most importantly the link with the printer which is how I get photos from my camera these days.... confused? well never mind it's pretty much sorted now, OH spent most of his Sunday rebuilding the d***** thing again .... he's getting quite good at it now.

So here we are...



I'm sure it is not obvious what this little objet d'art is so I'll explain. It's a little trinket box made from dominoes, covered with paper, painted, stamped and embossed. I do like to ring the changes lol. And because it didn't look that inspiring I made a teeny weeny concertina book to go inside as a little extra. I didn't say these giveaways would be anything useful!!



OK, you surely know the form by now, if you want to be included in the draw leave a comment on this post before 8.00 pm on Sunday 24th May. Please feel free to link to this giveaway on your own blogs and thanks again for visiting, ALL your comments are much appreciated even if I don't always get time to reciprocate.

Hugs Cindyxx

How ingenious - what a lovely idea - I thought it was metal based, and I love the heart on top. Gorgeous. How did you make that mini book - so cute.

I am having such fun reading your older posts, I am so very glad that I found you whilst blog hopping

Cindy, this is the first time I've visited your site. What a unique idea using dominoes for your charming box. I found your site thru the recommendation of my friend Stacy. She is: http://theclochehat.blogspot.com/ I am: http://jeansjewels777.blogspot.com/ We play mexican train monthly. This would make a perfect gift. Would it be possible to send me brief instructions on how to make these for my friends who get together to play mexican train. MY e-mail address is: jsnead777@gmail.com thank you, jean

Stacy said...

Cindy, I have so enjoyed looking over your blog today! What really strikes me is the variety of styles and mediums that you use! And you do them all so well - it's really fascinating! This little box is charming!
I will be adding you to my blog list so I can keep watch on the treasures you have yet to create!

Belinda said...

Cindy your generousity never ceases to amaze me. Your art is really beautiful and why wouldn't anyone want to win a piece of it. I still need to seed you some dominoes sorry I'm slack but I wanted to send something else with it and I haven't quite finished it yet. It will be a surprise. Take care Belinda

Great use for the dominoes, so very unique. And there is no law stating that everything you make must be useful :)
