A new box: padauk with etched glass top and woodburned and painted maple base. The top is from an X-ray of hands, and I got in a really sweet lovey mood for the base (not hard when you're watching Tom make boxes). It's both anatomical AND adorable. It's also hinged. In case you can't tell, the glass top is only clear over the red heart on the base.
And my new woodburned face: Sylvia Plath, surrounded by crows. This one turned our really nice, if sort of goth-ish and disturbing. I still love Plath, although as I get older, I think Ted Hughes was actually a far better poet. If you haven't read his great book of poetry Crow, get to it.
