Just finished making these sweet boxes using Jenn Balcer’s 2-5-7-10 box tutorial. So easy to make but when decorated, look gorgeous.
Thought these would be nice to take along on Friday to a work reunion with a few former employees (company now relocated to Australia). I will fill them with nuts and chocolates. Should be a fun luncheon catching up with everyone.
Last week I spent in New Plymouth – well Stratford, actually. Flew down there to spend a few days with my cousin but it rained and blew constantly, with the result that we spent most of the time by a roaring fire doing crossword puzzles, reading and playing Scrabble! No, my cousin is not into crafts – so I had an enforced break from all things paper and ink!
Now, I am not a ‘cat person’ – as you all know I am more partial to dogs, well one dog actually – but the funny thing is that my cousin’s cat ignored that fact and purred and cuddled up to me the whole time I was there.
We did manage during a break in the rain to go for a walk in the local park. They had some huge rhododendrons out in flower that looked so gorgeous – the colours were really striking, but of course, I had left my camera behind so no photos. Attempted to take one with my cellphone but must have pushed the wrong buttons or something, as I ended up with a funny little film that is so miniscule in size you can’t see it. Regardless of the weather it was really nice to spend time with her.
