NEW Sticky paper at Sawyers Place

WELL....I will say it again MY POOR BLOG!!!  Life has bee a little busy and just a little trying of late. I joined the workforce after many MANY  years as a full time Mum. Quite a shock to my system and I am still trying to work out my time management.  I have lots of orders for my crochet goods and all in all my poor scrapping has been left. To be total y honest I haven't really felt like scrapping and even thought of selling off all my scrapping stuff...BUTTTT ...I now feel like I want to scrap again and have sooo many ideas in my head, even if most of them are OTP projects.

That is what I want to share today and OTP project.  A few weeks ago I bought a little gift box from a shop I think it cost me $4.00 and yes it was lovely like it was BUT......the other day I got my new DT pack from SAWYERS PLACE and I just KNEW it was to transform this box.

So I started by giving the box a REALLY good coat of Gesso to hide the picture that was on the box

So now its just a matter of cutting the sticky paper to fit EASYYYYYY.....

I added so much to the lid and I still don't know if I am finished.


Laces on the side of the lid painted sides to the box and its finished.

I don't know that I will part with it....but if I do I think it will make a WONDERFUL gift box for someone special.

Till next time ...enjoy every moment and I hope you get some time to create.

Hi everyone. MY POOOOORRR Blog it has been soooo neglected, this thing called life seems to have gotten in the way.

I have had a few things going on.  I went back to the workforce for the first time in over 6 years. So far I am enjoying that.

For a long time I have wanted to sell some of my other hand crafts online so FINALLY  ( with a little push and lots of help from some friends) I started up selling my crochet and knitting creations. It was Autumn when I started and things were slow but now winter has begun I need more fingers and I AM Loving it.

So I am sad to say my scrapping has been as neglected as my blog, which is a shame as I have so many wonderful new pictures to scrap BUT SOON.

In the mean time I thought I would share some of my crochet goodies with you.

So for now let me just leave you with this that I recently read
