It's been a very, very long time since I last blogged. Over a year in fact!! Just been busy and, alright, I keep forgeting to blog :\ Anyway, I thought I'd share a jewellery box I made for my daughter, Georgia's 10th birthday, which was yesterday (21st March). My dear mum-in-law gave me a HEAP of lace, fabric, ribbon and 'stuff' after cleaning out her cupboard. Lucky me!!! :D One thing that was included was, a wooden box just perfect for a little girl's jewellery box! I set to work sanding and painting. It also came with some beautiful mauve satin and wadding for cushioning the interior. I happened to have the exact match of paint as the satin. It is the same colour as our eldest daughter's (Erin) room at present. I had some lovely flowers and pearls and trinkets to adorn it with. I also found in the stash, some trim that matched the colour as well as some lace!! It came together so easily! I really enjoyed making this for her. I had to tell Georgia it was for Nan, as I couldn't get it finished in time if I had of waited for her to not be around. (Just a little white lie!) On her birthday, Georgia opened her present, she gasped and glared at me, so funny! She loves it, which is all that matters!
I will be uploading some more pics of other stuff I have done/altered/destroyed (lol) tomorrow.
