Really

Well really I have been such a bad blogger,but I have been busy setting a forum up for my wonderful friends I have made worldwide at Krafty Timez Crafts,we all sort of got split by a store closure and I figured rather than try chase each other around different forums to set our own up,we are not store related so we can discuss anything,advertise anything and even invite store owners to let us have any discounts/shipping details they are having,I really would be happy for anyone worldwide to come join us over here,we are a very,very friendly group and well the girls talents are just amazing!...
This is a cigar box[I have a few] I altered,I wanted to keep the wood look so this got a really got coat of Glimmer mist in Coffee shop and I kept the attached label and rubbed Glimmer mist into it, the rest is just different papers and images from my stash and a few pieces got roughed up using my BG files to age it a little more,the lace got glimmer mist applied also, I like it,now to find a use for it lol!!............


This is the white stuff I have seen enough of this February to last a life time along with the very dangerous ice we have had to tread daily,this watering can I have had for ages,but I have my lavender heavily laden with snow,I altered it sort of!! I applied rub ons etc to this and it has stood out 2 years now and remains the same I was hoping it might start to rust etc seeing its galvinished but nope!!!...........




oh Sunday today and we are breadmaking and we are waiting for the first rise then more pummling and DS wants breadcakes so it probably will be loaf and cakes there is enough dough, Oh I just love the smell of fresh yeast,the quick packet stuff just does not do it for me at all,mind you I do like eating fresh yeast from the paper,takes me back to my childhood when I used to go to bakers for mum and we had to get 20z instead of one because I had eaten half of it by the time I had got home...........
Well I will go check on the bread and see what is what
bye 4 now.................

I love the box Rose, and how energetic of you to make bread from scratch! It's all I can do to sling the stuff in the bread machine!

Hello! I found you through Heather's blog. Nothing like homemade bread! I love paper arty stuff, (new to me) and I think your box is beautiful! X Hayley

Thanks for stopping by my blog and also for the great comments! They mean a lot! Your box is sweet and don't you just love the Glimmer Mist. I might just have to get some of the Coffee color!

Rose, this turned out stunning! I love that you kept a lot of the original wood exposed. The photo of the snow on your greenery is awesome! I just love it.

Nice cigar box Rose! Use it for coupons in the kitchen, jewelry in the bedroom, or candies in the sitting room.
I have to go to the forum you've been working on-I'm a pretty bad communicator now a days but I will try.
We are tired of the snow too! But your little can is adorable.
Hugs,
Liv
