What do you wish to know plus April update

Wishcasting Wednesday!

I´m posting later than usual today because I went on a road trip. Albeit a very short one. Sabine and I visited "La carpintería artesanal" today, which she has known for a long while and was completely new for me.

It is a very big shop dedicated to wooden pieces. From big doll houses to the tiniest boxes, going through any kind of decorative wood piece you can think about. Or almost. ;)

We spent a delightful hour and a half admiring each piece and making plans. Our goal was to buy only the pieces we will be using this month. No "just in case" purchases. Not an easy task! There were dozens of pretty boxes. Small, big, tall, short, square, circle (ooooooooohhhhh! The ciiiiircles).

Each time I picked a box I chanted "Ommmmmmm, you stilllllll have two boxes at the art classroommmmmmmm that you don´t know what to do withhhhhhh. Put that one downnnnnnnn"

So when I saw Jamie´s question for today: "What do you want to know?" my answer was a very practical one. I wish to know what to do next with my boxes. Specially the two boxes that have been neglected for weeks now beacuse I don´t know what to do with them. Which is the next step?

Here are my main projects for May: round box, sqaure box, necklace hanger and brushes holder.

You can read what other wishers are saying at the original post from Jamie for today.

On other news: I have completed a whole quarter of daily pictures for my 365 project. Super yay!

What a neat place for wooden items. I wouldn't be able to leave the place with just a few items. I have lots of things that need paint in my studio and they are still waiting for the paint. :-)
