Back to business, Inspiration Avenue celebrated their recent milestone, having 500 followers and the blog party included several giveaways. I was surprised and very lucky to have received a winning draw and the shadowbox was my gift. Yahoo! (They didn't invent that expression. lol)

|South African stamps, I'm saving these to use in a project!|
The first thing I see is the card and the blue bag. Inside the bag is a detailed description of the shadowbox, the creative process, the components, and the love that went into making the box.

Here is the big TA DA!
It's beautiful, the little book in the corner is an actual little book with blank pages. There's my teacup and saucer, a locket which opens, my pearls, Cinderella's shoe, and more. The birds almost made me cry as my Mom had a love for birds and my Dad made birdhouses. They have both passed away and this art box is a perfect reminder of some happy times with them.
I've been lax with things and seeing this lovely Muse with all the soothing yet inspiring elements will keep me company. For now she's on a shelf above my desk. A perfect place. Thank you very much Hettienne you have a creative gift and thank you so much for sharing. Yahoo indeed.
