WOYWW #92 - Boxing Up!!

Here we are again, happy as can be... all good friends and ... jolly good company. I really enjoyed last week's WOYWW, and got round a fair few... for those who don't know what I mean, please go and look at the wonderful Julia's blog, Stamping Ground... she has really started something!!!

I have been box decorating this week, with some little blanks I bought around Christmas time. I have used Eco paints and white glue sandwich to crackle the surfaces. It's the easiest way to get this technique I have ever tried, and beats the dedicated crackle paints I have used...


Been making more roses too and really enjoyed painting them up to look distressed and antique... the others are Prima, but they work just as well...






With Mothering Sunday coming up, I have started on a configurations box for my mum, and this is as far as I have got today... so this is my desk this week... MUCH tidier and with enough space to put these things down to take a photo!!! Also made a couple of cards which have been sent off to son's girlfriend and her son.... working on some more jewellery, as my cleaner bought so many pieces in the last 3 weeks, that I don't have enough variety to put in the aforementioned nail shop!!!! Good one way, but rubbish in another, as  I have not got out there to advertise what I can do... think the boxes will find their way up there to the shop as well...

Hope you have a great week, and have fun with whatever you are doing... off to make more stuff now. Thanks for coming round again this week, it was lovely to see you here and do leave me a comment as I love hearing from you all...
Love and light

Hello Frankie, your boxes are beautiful. I've been trying the crackle technique but I think I need to practice a bit more, it's not as good as yours. the roses are gorgeous too. Love your configuration box, I'm sure your mother will love it. As it's now Monday I hope your weekend went well. Elizabeth x #97
