Thanks for popping in.
I’ve been wrapping presents and generally preparing for Christmas. You know, unwrapping the ornaments, getting all those lovely candle holders out, those beautiful things which only come out in December.
I came across this little box, carefully and lovingly wrapped, waiting patiently to be brought out again. It’s been in the Gray’s Christmas treasure chest for years.
Starting with the lid, each side sports one of the Twas the Night stamps.
And when you lift the lid off,
… the sides fall open, to reveal a secret wood.
And inside the woodland, there are loads of little snowmen!
You know that fusible fibre we were using yesterday? Well, here in the inside of the box, you can see the film being used.
What a beautiful keeper, eh? I am not even sure of the maker, but I have a hunch it was Jane Telford who made this beauty. Are you the artist, Jane? Pray do tell!
One thing’s for certain. This wonderful gift comes out to play every year.
It sits in the living room, waiting for somebody to open the lid…
All hail to the crafting community! We make beautiful things, and we truly appreciate the time and skill involved in making these beautiful things. The house is full of gifts from arty friends. I never throw them away. Got boxes of cards too! Just can’t bear to part with them, because I KNOW how much time and love have gone into them.
Time to go make a few cards and gift tags myself !! Thank heavens for the Fresh Cut Dies! For a chick in a spin, that’s the closest to handmade it’s going to get this year!
Love & Hugs,
