Or to be precise, a wooden pencil box. I wanted to use my alcohol inks to see what sort of effects I could get and to get all inky and messy. So this is how it looked at the start...
It had been a trying day, woke up with a start, something wasn't feeling right with the world. Sure enough it was mum, who was not feeling well, think she'd had another small stroke, I honestly wasn't sure if she'd make it till lunchtime. I asked if she wanted me to call the doctor, but she said no in a very firm voice. My niece, her grand-daughter was due to visit, so had to call her, I knew it was useless trying to put her off coming, but I filled her in on what was happening at our end, didn't say anything that may cause alarm, by lunchtime mum was much better, asked if she wanted a bacon sandwich, the answer was YES. Niece called in an hour later, so that cheered mum up, by tea time she was back to her usual self. Guess there'll be a lot more of these types of days. Life is such a rich tapestry! Sorry I do tend to take the practical view of things, which is also what my mum does, I know what her wishes are and I've promised to honour them. If I sound light and breezy, trust me I am not, this is very hard, but I have to put her needs first.
Box will be finished over the next few days, also hope to join in the latest Sunday Stamper challenge, and there is a nice parcel on its way to me from CnC... a cuttlebug! Got the discount and the flexi pay... now looking forward to the CnC super sale on Tuesday!
Hope you all had a good weekend and that you had some sunshine.
