"Bags & Boxes"

Hello Blog friends and welcome to my little corner of the amazing wonders of Blogland.
I am afraid my Mojo is still relaxing somewhere in the sunshine I think.  Will he be back soon?? well your guess is as good as mine!!!!  If it were me I would be staying away till the weather here got better.  
I hope you are all safe and dry where ever you are.  I feel for these poor people who are flooded out.  I know how it effected my friend Pearl and how long it took for her to get back into her house.  She is now coping with felling trees in the little bit of woodland in her garden.  Lots of the trees blew down but also brought down others with the "domino" effect!!!  Cant even get some of the wood for the fire, it is all Pine Trees.  They are not good for burning, they spark and leave sticky resin in your chimney.
Anyway I have nothing new at the moment.  I have been working on Projects for the Card Classes at the Tearoom starting again on the 14th January. 
Here are some Bags and Boxes that were given out to some of my friends and neighbours at Christmas.  I filled the Bags with Tablet and Truffles, Boxes just Tablet.

Boxes made with bargain papers I got at Dunelm Mills some time ago

Lids decorated with Roses and leaves using SB Dies

 Bags made using Lidl Card.  

Hopefully they will bring out more soon, it is fantastic card to work with and a very reasonable price.

That`s it for today folks, I am off to prepare some things for a family Dinner here tomorrow.
Have been out to the shops, got in supplies hopefully that`s it because the weather is really wild.
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  4. Gorgeous bags and boxes, decorated beautifully too. xxxxxx

  5. Your boxes and bags are beautifully created and decorated, as always, Patricia.
    I seem to have lost my Mojo, too. Lots of ideas, but I can't seem to get motivated at all.
    Stay safe in this terrible weather.
    We're level with the Pennines here, and the gales have blown down some of our pine trees planted thirty years ago! xx

  6. these are fabulous Patricia - you've reminded me I have my crafty ladies to think about on the 13th Jan - need to get my thinking cap on!

  7. Your boxes and bags are beautiful Patricia and so beautifully decorated, as always. My mojo must be off visiting the same place as yours, in my case he has been gone many weeks now. Just watched the news, the flooding down south is terrible. Hope it stops soon... Happy New Year! Hugs, Anne x

  9. Hi Patricia your selection of boxes are beautiful I bet they went down a treat with all! Hope you are staying safe and not affected by the weather! I am just trying to catch up after Christmas! Susan x

  10. Hi Patricia
    Didn't realise that Kate was quite that far from Dundee but if she fancies a stroll. . . . . . .lol! Thought she could do one of her luxury bus trips .
    I missed out on the Lidl Christmas card but still have plenty of the plain stuff from there.
    We have had a right mix of glorious sunshine and 5 min heavy showers. . . Sunny at the moment. Off now to get changed for work. If I come across Mr Mojo, I'll send him back up North.

  11. Hello Patricia, what really lovely gift boxes, I must try and and learn to make more of them. The papers and embellishments are beautiful.

    I', not getting any crafting done just now, lost a bit of my enthusium too, I am however, managing to set up my new laptop, which I'm using at the moment, so I've got somewhere.

    I have lost my lovely colourful heading on my blog, don't know what's happened there. I'll work it out eventually.
    Have a lovely weekend, hugs Kate x

  28. Hi Patricia, Like Jenny above, I would love to be one of your neighbours too, and receive one of these fabulous creations and with goodies inside, lucky neighbours. These boxes and gift bags are stunning, as always. I really must investigate Lidl, the card you have got from there has been really lovely, and now Dunelm too.
    I hope your family meal goes well, and you all stay safe and warm. I just noticed the headline on one newspaper this morning, saying snow to come after the floods - let's hope not !!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
