This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

Part 1 - Birthday Cake In A Box
My son Jim's birthday was Saturday and I made him a card and cake in a box. When I made my first box using this tutorial I knew that I wanted to make one for his birthday with a small cake inside. The cake is made around one of the little tea lights and so it lights up! I forgot to take a photo of the cake by itself, but you can see in the last photo the cake top and part of the side which had a banner that said Happy Birthday!
I will post the card tomorrow. It was the first time I made a pop-up card using this technique and it took me a long time but I loved the result and the two were great together.
Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! We are having some hot weather again here in this part of WI - the forecast said it was to be 98 degrees on Wednesday and 100 degrees on Thursday!!!!! Wishing you a cool Monday!
