Good morning all, hope everyone is safe and well.
We seem to have missed the worst of the storm, it was very wet and windy first thing yesterday but by mid morning things had calmed down somewhat, thankfully.
It's been one of those weeks - three teenagers who went to the same school as my daughter were killed in a car accident locally last week, the first funeral was held yesterday with another today and the final one on Monday. It's so sad especially at this time of year and has been a huge shock to both pupils and staff at the school. My sister in law is also in hospital recovering from robotic surgery on Tuesday to remove a lump from one of her kidneys. We haven't been to see her yet as it's a 3/4 hour round trip and she hasn't really been up to seeing visitors yet.
I'm meeting myself coming back at the moment....still got loads to do for Christmas although all the shopping is done and mostly wrapped and the food is ordered. I bought some scarf kits from Crafter's Companion in their birthday week sale and need to get some of them made for pressies though!!
Today's share is a little box I've made for my brother using a tutorial found here.
I used two 12x12 sheets of paper from Papermania and the finished box is about four and a half inches square. I've decorated the box using co-ordinating card, ribbons, a bell and a poinsettia flower from my stash. The snowflake if from Asda and the little wooden Noel has been coloured with DI.
The finished boxes are quite strong, this one housing a paperweight.
