Belgium chocolates…….

Well I have been a super busy girl today.  I finally have stopped.  The light has run out so no more colouring.  So I am catching up on my emails, and reading my rss feeds, which I love so much.

Today started with me getting up super early, straightening my hair and then off to the salon when I meet up with Gemma and we decide what style I am going to have, and then go and do it.  I have gone with an emo cut. and no I haven’t had a chance to take a pic.  When I returned home I sorted out my craft cupboard *rolls eyes* sometimes things should be left alone, but I did gain a shelf.  The good thing is there wasn’t hardly anything I parted with today which is good, because it means I am either not buying stuff I waste or I am using it.  I don’t know about you but are you one of these people that buy something and then don’t use it because it is so gorgeous bwahahahhahha..  Anyhoooo I definitely, have stopped being wasteful.  Yippeeeeeee!!..

I did manage to finish the trinket box I started.  Lots of lace and gluing patience lol.  I am thinking of getting or 5 of those really special choccies to pop in there.  We have a Thornton's at the shopping village.  Personally I can’t stand Thornton chocolate, but lots do.  I will think on that, the farm do great Belgium chocolates too.


I painted he box with acrylic paint and a coat of gloss that took the longest time letting it dry completely between coats. I added some lace from stash to the lid and bottom of the box and around the lace at the top I added some leaf ribbon i got from cuddly buddly.  The flowers, pins and other ebellies are all from my stash..

Today I am proud how that box came out and I am proud that I was proactive.

What makes you proud today?
