'Goings ons' in the crafty place ;-)


A year ago I made some of these :

They all sold at the V&H Fair and so..



Rather than throw away these boxes (they come with lovely wavy lids), I thought I'd make some more. I only had three boxes but used the tops and bottoms and thus made six.





I just had to raid my vintagey bits of fabric to add that extra touch, you understand!

And I got going, covering the card and the boxes



Giving each a vintage touch...

I'm going to load these with papers and pencils


They make a nice, inexpensive gift ;-)








Whilst they were drying, I took a long sniff at these ... I revamped these lavender bags, yesterday, just to pretty them up a bit!


That's my 20 minutes for today and yesterday....LOL!
(More like two hours +)

I don't know about 20 mins - they would take me days to make!!! Well done on achieving so much in a short space of time!

I think I will have to run out to the studio with the kitchen timer and have twenty minute sessions on the days when I don't have time for a full session!! I love your vintage fabrics - something I need for my stash .....

Loving those pretty lavender bags I bet they smell divine. My mam has a piece of the "Sweet pea" I'll have to look in the back of her cupboards... Lucey xx
