My Sweet Wonderland

The previews out! Now I can share with you (my people) "My Sweet Wonderland" - my playset contribution for the We Heart Wood show that opens THIS THURSDAY at MUNKY KING!!

I was invited to participate a while back (before Christmas) and I was so excited to get started! Noferin (artist duo) was kind enough to send out an entire box of their wood toys Jibibuts and we were encouraged to use any of the pieces in any grouping that inspired us.

For my set of four, I used 7 of the toys - breaking off pieces to mix and match what I felt best fit the vision. It was so much fun, I wanted to do more, but I had to think about my time restraints! (I do have much work yet to finish for my show in June!)
I hope if you're able, you'll come out to see the magic of all the great artists in the show!

If you are in the area, please give this amazing line up of artists the credit they deserve. A web preview of the show is up, however, please note that this is a preview and not all of the pieces are shown. Best thing is to see the show for yourselves!

If you can't make it, we will post images of all the pieces and the opening night on our facebook. Become a fan!"

It so reminds me of being in elementary school - when we had a project we had to work on at home and the excitement of coming to school on the day it was due to see everybody else's. This is a wonderful group - I can't wait to see it all in person!

We were told to take some shots of the pieces at home ~ these are mines. I love the way they looked with my old books and tiny Christmas Tree (my February Christmas Tree).

This being my second Alice In Wonderland inspired project (the first were my Alice pieces in 2005) , I was over the moon with the turn out. I hope you all are as well, and I hope to see your pretty faces there!!

It is beautiful! I wish I could come to the show, crossing an ocean would be a bit to much work though.

Good luck and have fun!


They are all irresistible!
