Saturday Snapshot: Orange!

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click pictures for close-up).
 

 
I've been working all week on a tissue cover for my boss.  Her favorite colors are Orange (!), yellow, bright blues, and just about any other bright color you can name.  She's also a professor with an interest in drama....so, thus, the comedy/tragedy theme.
 
 
[I also posted pictures of this for the Orange You Glad It's Friday meme sponsored by Hood Photo Blog.]

Orange is perfect for this time of year! And these are especially cute.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

That is terrific - did use ordinary canvas, or plastic canvas? I might steal the idea if you don't mind. Thank you for visiting my blog.

Fabulous tissue box! I love working with plastic canvas but haven't done it in too long.

Lovely handiwork. I love that you 'posed' your orange treasure with a very complimentary backdrop

Nicely done...hope those tissues won't be needed for colds and flu♫

Alyce said...

That is a great combo of her interests, with the color and the drama masks - very creative!

@Christine Harding: That's Plastic Canvas. I used to do a lot of it...now it's mostly when I need an unusual present.

Adorable!! Wish I was crafty!

Nice! My tissue boxes are naked too. I have to rely on the manufacturer to print a pretty design. I'm horrible at crafty things.

What an adorable gift! You really got all her favorites in there too! I love crafts but have been busy with blogging and reading. I need to get back to it. :)

That is awesome! It must have taken a long time, but it turned out great! I hope your boss loves it.
