Hi all, not a lot going on on my desk. A box my daughter gave me, hmm thinking about how I am going to change and use it. So I will be looking around for ideas of how to do it. Seems a good size will have to think on it a bit. There is a postcard background I am going to blend some ink on it, and do a bit of paper tearing add a bit of layering and lace. Its been sitting there a few days now. At the moment still have a bit going on with hubby so my crafty time is limited. Think I need to maybe just case a few cards, do something a bit easy, maybe make a few copies of the cards I have made recently.
Have you joined in at Julia's stamping ground yet. You so need to take a peek at the wonderful varied projects that are on display on desks around the world. Careful though its very addictive. I am off to look at some desks.
Have a great day
I have 4 blogs you could trawl through for ideas, there are tutorials as well, goodluckReplyDelete
Hi there Sandy, will be interested in what you come up with for the fab box, I have one just like it in red.ReplyDelete
Also do you like your guillotine and would you recommend getting one and what brand is yours please? I have three jolly paper trimmers but thinking about something more heavy duty....
Cheers, Elaine #31
I'm sure you'll come up with some clever crafty idea on how to decorate your box. I like the colour it is now . jill #48ReplyDelete

Me again Sandy, thanks for the info on your cutter.ReplyDelete
I love having a nose too! I'm sure you'll find loads of box-inspiration. I like the look of the vintage postcard too... I'm starting with all the 1s as I'm at 101, so it's nice to WOYWW-meet you!ReplyDelete
I do hope hubby is doing better and you do find time to do some cards even if they are repeats, better than nothing. I am sure you will find some inspiration to decorate the box it will pop out and hit you when it does so beware. LOLReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing the box later, I can never throw a box out, my craft room is full of them ,all shapres and sizesReplyDelete

Don't you love decorating boxes? I had one like that which I made into a special birthday box for my little nephew. After I had it all decorated, I glued "boy" things to the lid--marbles, rocks, sea shells, and a little car. He loved it! And it was nice because to get to his present, all he had to do was take the lid off. Happy crafting! --Sandy LeighReplyDelete
Have fun decorating your box!! The perfect idea will come to you!ReplyDelete
Don't you love altering things? #138ReplyDelete
Oooh, nothing nicer than a box to alter and nice to see what other people do too. Enjoy your altering! Sorry this is so late! Belated Happy WOYWW, Anne x #32ReplyDelete
That box could be a great altered piece of art! Happy belated WOYWW!ReplyDelete
I love collecting boxes as they always have so much potential. Looking forward to seeing the end result or progress snaps.ReplyDelete
Whoo-Hoo.. A box just waiting to be altered... have lots of fun.. I'm sure it will be fabulous.. Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#4ReplyDelete
I've always wanted to be a box collector but the only boxes I seem to collect or packing boxes! With being an expat for the last 23 years I've certainly collected a few.ReplyDelete
I'll be waiting with interest to see what you come up with for yours! Have fun :D
Thanks for popping over to my place earlier and I apologise for being so late in returning...have a wonderful weekend.
I liked your card to your son I just saw scrolling through - great job and happy 21 to him!! You have your hands full right now, now that hubby doesn't have the use of both of his, so I agree with your thoughts that you just need to take it easy and do some CASEing. Nothing too taxing as you've got enough on your mind already!ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by to visit me earlier! Have a great week! Darnell #136
I expect that your ideas will come spinning back as soon as the stuff on your mind clears away...like worrying about your hubby..enjoy the walking around the table and thinking about it period..think of it as the calm before the storm!!ReplyDelete
Is that a mug tree with craft supplies on it? That's freakin' brilliant.ReplyDelete
