"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, sorry I am late with my offering.   Erika over at started this some time ago.  Since then quite a few have joined in.  It is nice to see what we have done in the past and as for me how my Crafting has progressed and also changed. 
My first foray into Paper Crafting was when I gave up my work to be at home to nurse John when he broke his back and his left arm in an accident.  
My! Oh! My! you should see the space my "stash" takes up now......!!!!
From those humble beginnings I know I have come a long way.   I love nothing more than playing with bits of card/paper and glues, seeing what I can come up with.  I still do lots of other things, my hands can not be still.
Here is something I did just because I could:-

Just little boxes ....

But handy for these ....

Boxes were made from Cereal Packets
Covered with backing papers printed from a NitWit download
Made this a couple of years ago, it is still in use

That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

  11. Hi Patricia
    When I started paper crafting a couple of years ago, I practised with my Hougie making a few little boxes in mirror card. I bought one of those plastic shaped basket things people put cleaning gear in and put the boxes in the trays to hold my bits and bobs.
    Doesn't look anywhere near as pretty as your ensemble though.
    Have you made any biscuit shaped ones for John lol!
    Have a great weekend.
