I wanted to do this one last post here before I put my laptop to rest. I am having to type this with one hand as my other is holding up the lid as the hinges have both gone now ;o(
I have been telling you all about the project I sent in to the Magnolia mag and as I have had no confirmation that they are going to use it here it is. It started life as a box that my hug boot type slippers my son bought me last christmas.

Sorry I have not been around but we are having a run of bad luck just now, health wise and with the cars too...
Just been messing today with some photos.. I do not have many good ones of my Welsh grandchildren them my son told me I could download them from his facebook page.. Lol.. How thick am I...
So I spent a couple of hours trawling through the albums and put some onto a "Toggle" and had some printed out yesterday it cost me a fortune but will keep me happy and quiet for a few days....
I had a bit of fun yesterday making soap....I was in the mood to do something different and easy..So I went upstairs and reach down the soap making kit I bought a few months ago.I never thought of taking photos but I will next time I make some... I can't wait for Christmas this year...Lol... at least I'm getting ahead..
The other thing I have been doing is painting some box sets (the ones that stack inside each other) that I bought months ago ready to decorate and make books to go inside...
The picture framing shop got raided by me again yesterday as I was passing. He is great in there as he gives me all his waste... I always put some money in the charity box though..
Well I best hurry as I'm making parsnip and apple soup and do not want it to spoil.....!
Come back and see what I'm up to soon....

Just a quick post as I have the worst week ever..
I bought this box at NEC to decorate and have done it over the last 2 days..
What better to decorate it with but my new spring Magnolia Kit...
Anyone reading the H&S posts on Paper Craft Planet will know my head is all over the place just now and did not think about what I was doing properly... I used Gesso on the plain bare wood as a base and then stamped my new images onto the box, then used my distress inks to colour them with. Not thinking about it being waterbased I then covered it in Distress Clear Crackle paint...Lol..
Any normal time I would have thought about it..the next ones I buy will be coloured with my copics...
I am still very happy with the effect I have just that the colours smudged a bit...!
The pictures are not as good as I would have liked either but I hope you get a little bit of inspiration from it..
