I’ve been a bit
lazy busy this week and haven’t had much opportunity to post what I’ve been up to, so sorry if you’ve missed me (though I suspect you haven’t, everyone’s got busy lives). To be truthful I haven’t had very much to post about, but I’ve done a little bit and have finally started taking pictures.
Commented on a post by Jennefer, Mother, beader, coffee lover, http://jenbeads.wordpress.com/ at the beginning of the month and mentioned that I would be making a puffy box to put my sister’s birthday present in, (the black and white rose necklace). I never thought to take a photo so I’ve made a few more as (by accident) I found that using wallpaper – the only thing I had to hand from my sick bed – makes a reasonable box. Better still it was free because I had samples from our local DIY store from my recent redecoration. Here are some more I made with leftover samples.
They are not strong enough to go through the post but make a nice little gift wrap.
Mez http://mhhadfield.wordpress.com/makes fantastic origami boxes from card but my attempts never match up. Puffy boxes are really easy though.
Inspired by tindink, http://tindink.com/ I’ve been making some necklaces recently, check out her etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/tindink, she makes wonderful stuff. Reluctant to post mine as they are not quite as good as hers (or nearly) and I’ve totally copied the design. I’m going with the theory that this is the sincerest form of flattery, but I really can’t post them and claim credit. Therefore there will be a small delay while I get on with something of my own design.
Hope to catch up with you all soon.
