What a surprise it has been that the sky has decided to dump a foot or so of snow on the UK. I hope it isn't hampering your life too much.
Over the last week or two I have been working on a new idea. Keepsake Boxes. Three in total, a Keepsake, a Baby Keepsake and a Wedding Keepsake Box.
All three boxes would have original artwork, but I am hoping to stay with the same kind of format for each type.
Here we have a 'Keepsake Box'. The box is strong ivory coloured card and has an invisible magnet inside to close. Organza pretty ribbon to close too.
Original artwork embellishing the top of the box. A mosaic of various images of this box.
Onto a Baby Keepsake Box. The baby's name, date of birth and weight can be added.
Finally, a Wedding Keepsake. Vintage papers, fabrics, wire heart, foil hearts, lace... and of course embroidery and buttons to finish. The happy couple's names and date of Wedding added to this too.
I hoped that they would be thought of as a special, thoughtful gift, that would last a lifetime.
I would be very grateful for your thoughts.
So all three have been freshly popped over into Etsyland along with the embroidered piece below.To celebrate the start of a New Year, I am having a little teeny tiny 'Giveaway'. The 'Giveaway' will be a brooch very similar to this one....so if you fancy leaving me a comment, I would love to hear all about your New Year's Resolutions! I will throw the names in a pot and pick one out in a week's time! Have you kept that Resolution? Or are you like me and have not bothered?
Thank you very much for stopping by. x
