For those in Australia, welcome to the first day of winter. Some of you will be dreading the cold weather, but for me, it means I have an excuse to be inside, in my little craft room, creating!

We have some gorgeous work to share with you today, I’m sure there will be something here to inspire you, and get the creative juices flowing.

Joanne has once again wowed us with her ability to turn a cute metal bird cage into an amazing work of art. Here she has created an amazing ‘Ice princess castle’

Joanne shares a little about her creation ‘ This time I altered yet another cage…it is the fairy-tale castle home of my ice princess. She lives within and holds a flickering battery operated candle at night. It really does look gorgeous at night but doesn’t photograph so well…I did try :(‘
