Little by little life is going back to normal around here and although I still have some very crazy days, 
I am finding it easier to get back into my sewing and crafts.

I have been wanting to make a shadow box for the craft room and this past weekend, we were finally able to build it.
I apologize about the quality of the pictures. My camera is acting up and I used my iPhone this time around.

My husband put together the shadow box in a couple of hours and I just painted it with a 
basic white color paint I had in the garage.

He also added a backing to it that looks like bead board but I forgot to take a picture of it before I decorated it. :)

We made everything ourselves, even the small shelves. 
I just bought the ironing table and the small iron and sewing machine.
I also made a tiny crate using Popsicle sticks. Not my best work! LOL

And I made a very simple sign to add over the box.

And that's it1 Simple and cute.
It makes me smile every time I walk in the craft room. :)

I have been busy (and hiding) in my craft room making new drapes for our family room and kitchen area. :)
I had the fabric waiting for me since January, but I am happy to say I am now almost finished!
Thank you all for your visit!
Until next time!


  1. It's always a treat to see your craft room. Your shadow box is just so cute! How fun!

  2. Maria your sewing room is gorgeous! I had one, not as lovely as yours, though....back in our big house before blogging, where I sewed drapes and little dresses for my two girls...I lived in that room when I wasn't working in hubby's ceramic factory.
    The shadow box you and your hubby created is simply adorable! I love the decorations inside it, it makes me smile. My G'girls would love it!
    By the way, my DD Alex is pregnant and baby will be born in Madrid, like you, lol!
    Have a great week.

  3. Oh my word, that little box is ADORABLE!

  4. Adorable! What a fun project for you and your husband. I love the details and you are a fine popsicle crate maker :-) My dream craft room! I always love seeing it. It inspires me for sure!

  5. I love it, Maria Elena! A perfect addition to your craft room! Those little pieces are just too cute. I love miniatures.
