Anyway,I fell over on Monday. I slipped on some wet leaves and ended up on my backside. I stupidly, or subconsciously, put out my hand that wasn't holding a cup of coffee, and managed to cut the heel of my hand. The coffee stayed in my hand (hooray!) but spilled a little. In my embarrassment and once I was standing again, I threw the cup of coffee in temper, for it to then splash all over my lovely Alexander McQueen shopping bag. I was not a happy bunny by the time I got to the office. So, Tuesday was not a good day for me as I ached from the tumble. Next time I think I will add more alcohol to the coffee!
Today's offering is the small box I made for the gift my daughter had bought. The photo is not brilliant. I tried hard not to get me or the camera reflected off the lid. Using my Hougie board I cut a piece of gold mirri 14x14cm and scored each edge at 2cm. I cut a piece of white card 16x16cm and on two adjacent edges trimmed a slither of card off. I scored at 3cm on each edge. I decorated the top with a very simple die cut in gold mirri which was a freebie from a magazine. I decided to offset it for ease. I decided I couldn't work out where the centre of the lid was. I think you all, already know how to make simple boxes - I'm a bit of a newbie to box making, so this will be a bit of a reference point for me. I was thrilled with the result and need to make a couple more now (I've at long last managed to get husband a small gift and need to disguise it).
Had Salsa Monday night and last night. I have a another Salsa night tomorrow (Friday). Craft club tonight. Nails done on Saturday. So busy,busy busy! Have fun whatever you are up to
