Heart in Forest - Dream Wishes Box

This was handcut and designed in my Studio.  Inspired by John Next Door.
Not Laser cut.  laser cutting leaves a brownish edge which I do not like. I embossed the top.  The 4 sided heart is strung with double gold threads.

Secured to the wood base, then set the dome on top.

The scrolls on top were from my scrap bin where I had too many scrolls.  I didn't think that was possible.  I love scrolls and swirl type elements..

I got tired of rifeling through boxes and notebooks trying to find embossing folders and cutting dies.
Pulled the entire Studio apart and now have most things organized.

 TO the right of the door is my little section of some of my favorite designs and some from other artists.
Then I set out and got ribbon out of a drawer and put most of it up on a Baker's Rack for easy access:
Embossing machines and Xyrons.  In the way back, ink pads for easy access.  In between desks are my CD designs archived.
