Atered trinket box

Hello everybody! I'm sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs lately. I just started a new job on Thursday and it's keeping me busy. I know it's only been a couple of days, but I'm enjoying it so far. I have quite a lot of work and I'm still adjusting and figuring out stuff, but otherwise so far everything seems great! 

On the other hand I've been starting to feel that I'm coming down with sore throat. Yikes! Not something I want! So I've been googling to get some ideas how to prevent this from getting even worse and how to heal it (preferably over the weekend). Right now lemon, honey and tea are my veeeery good friends. ;)

Yesterday when I went shopping I saw firt Christmas decorations in the store. I was like "Seriously?! It's only September!" I love Christmas - it's my favourite time of the year - and each year I'm waiting impatiently for it to arrive, but Christmas decorations in September ... That's too early even for me. What do you think about that? When do they put Christmas decorations on shelves where you live?

Speaking about Christmas ... Christmas cards are definitely something I *should* start working on already. And some Christmas presents too. If I don't start soon, I'll be in big trouble (again!) when the season comes. If you'd like to start working on your Christmas projects soon too, you might want to check out the Crafty ribbons store. Why? Because they just added some gorgeous festive ribbons and buttons to their store. You can see all of them here. I'm hoping to find some time to play with those over the weekend.

For today, I have something a bit different to show you. A box.

I had this La La Land Crafts trinket box in my drawer for a while, patiently waiting for me to find some time to decorate it. And I finally came around to do it. :) I took some scraps of paper from my stash, some embellishments and went to work. 

This is what the top looks like.

I used several different dies from different companies, some gems and sequins, Viva decor stamp and button for the center of the star. And voila, this is the result. :)

This is what the box looks like opened up.

Ok, so this is what's been happening on this side of the world. I hope to do some blog hopping later today to see what have you been up to. 

Enjoy the weekend! xx

  10. I know how you feel, when work is busy it is hard to find the time (or sometimes motivation to craft) and a new job can only double that! Sorry you're not feeling too good, I had a cold last week, but it's on it's way out now. Lots of vitamin c and plenty of fluid is my recommendation and you're already doing the right thing for your sore throat.
    I love your little trinket box, so beautifully decorated and just the right size for a small gift for baby and/or to keep those treasured keepsakes :) xx
