Love in a box!





After a long time of having this idea in my mind I finally made it come true! I love boxes and well... who doesn´t? It´s just so cute to have little cute treasures here and there... I kept playing with this idea of setting a doll inside a box... had the boxes, had the dolls but didn´t quite know how to put it together.... first I thought of making the drawing of the doll (or dolls) inside on the box... tried it but didn´t like it.... and suddenly .... it happened!!!! how about making the same doll inside on the lid but in a textile collage version???? Oh oh oh... it looks perfect!!!!!!

The words on it are just a super cute detail... been playing with wool collage letters lately on my dolls because is just such an amazing material, is soft and kind of rigid... My fav. is my oh so precious orange wooll that I use for most of the hearts of my dolls ... oh I adore the orange tone it has!!! so bright!!!!! and contrasts beautifully with almost every color!!!!!!! soooo... yes... I thought why not?... and it looks sooooooo pretty!!!!! everything contrasts absolutely perfect, the color of the box (paper bag color) is such an amazing surface! it makes everything sooooo bright! oh well... I could talk about this forever and I don´t want to bore you.... it´s just I´m so happy with this new creations that.... oh oh oh... I hop, and sing, and jump around my chair while I hold them both and smile!!!!

Cute, cute, cuuuuuuute.....!!!!!!! did I mention they are already in the store????..... (aplausses)

Después de un tiempo de tener esta idea en mi cabecita finalmente se ha hecho realidad!

Me gustan las cajas y cajitas... y a quién no? Es tan lindo tener pequeños tesoros aquí y allá... Jugaba con la idea de una muñeca dentro de una caja... tenía las cajas, tenía las muñecas... pero no sabía como ponerlas en conjunto. Primero pensé en hacer un dibujo sobre la tapa de la caja de la muñeca (o muñecas) que estuvieran dentro... lo intenté pero no me gustó mucho... y de pronto... llegó la inspiración!!!! Porqué no hacer un collage textil igual a la muñeca dentro de la caja???? ay ay ay... es perfecto!!!!!!!

Las palabras que puse junto son un muy bonito detalle... he estado jugando ultimamente con letras hechas de pedacitos de lana en mis muñecas... la lana es un material maravilloso, no de deshilacha, es suave y a la vez es rígida... Mi favorita es la lana naranja con la que hago la mayoría de los corazónes en mis muñecas.... me encnata el tono que tiene! es tan brillante!!!! y contrasta maravillosamente bien con casí todos los colores!!!!! así que me dije... porqué no?... y se ve hermoooooooooooso!!!! todo contrasta a la perfección!! El color de la caja (cartón rígido) es una superficie maravillosa! hace que todo se vea muy brillante! y bueno... les podría hablar de esto por horas.... y no quiero aburrirlos... es sólo que estoy tan feliz con estas nuevas creaciones que... ay ay ay... brinco y canto y bailo alrededor mi silla mientras tengo las cajitas entre mis manos y sonrío!!!!

Lindas, lindas, requetelindas!!!!!..... ya les conté que ya están en la tienda???.... (aplausos)

Much applause! Beautiful and oh so cute! It is so satisfying when an idea you've had comes together, isn't it? I've recently discovered that I love making miniature vignettes with my plushies, and it all came together in an instant! Now one of my vignettes is being featured in a national contest (details on my blog)! I'm thrilled! And I'm thrilled for you, Caracarmina! You make such beautiful, special things, and your "Love in a Box" is very precious! Congratulations! :-)
