"Oragami Box & Tag"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and enjoying the spring weather.  We have a VERY thick frost this morning making it look like we have had a dusting of snow on the newly ploughed field.
Sorry I have been missing, life in general is very busy, in a good way I might add. 
I love my Blog but as you can imagine family and home life comes first.  I have lost my MOJO which does not help, if you find it could you please send it home!!!
Got a request for an Origami Box and Tag so here it is.

White and Gold was what was asked for.  I really should have embossed the Gold card it looks rather stark. Think because it was gold I was not tuned in properly.  I am not a lover of Gold, I don`t even wear Gold Jewellery very often.
Anyway it is done and customer delighted, that`s all that really matters.
I have another BIG distraction at the moment as well.  Can`t help watching these little darlings playing in the field.

They are so darned cute, they run back and forth along the garden fence chasing each other for ages.  Next when you look out they are all zonked lying in the sun.

That`s it from me for today
Thank you for sticking with me and calling in, I really appreciate that
Till next time

  1. Hi Patricia,

    Beautiful box & tag, did not need embossing lol! Love the image of those little Lambs, they are fun to watch.

    I am not on here very often of late either, so much to do and I find the blog, as much as I love it, does take over everything else!

    Have a great day watching those Lambs

    Love & Hugs

  2. Morning Patricia,
    Love your box and tag, gorgeous. Had a go at one of these but it was awful so never tried again.
    Lovely little lambs can fully understand what a distraction they are, so cute.

  3. We had that hard frost yesterday morning Patricia but the day was then beautiful! This morning just a slight covering and now the sun is shining. Lovely origami box. We haven't got the sheep in the next field this year unfortunately - just hope he doesn't put the cows back in ... lol! Hugs Christine xx

  4. Stunning box Patricia. You are certainly Queen of the boxes. I have been in the garden mostly during this lovely spell of weather, not lounging I am sorry to say, but working. However, it's all done and looking good. Just got a bench to stain. Hugs Rita xxx

  5. Morning Patricia, A stunning origami box and card, complete with your gorgeous flowers.
    I would be mesmerised watching the baby lambs, I'm afraid that I would spend all my time watching them haha.
    We had a light frost yesterday morning and I had planted some plants on Sunday, but they seem OK, my fingers are crossed.
    Have a lovely day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  6. Love your box and those pretty roses! If I looked out my window to the scene you have, I'd never get anything finished!

  7. awww love the lambs, I had one when I was little, it grew big then disappeared....love your origami Patricia you are very clever, Brilliant creation, awesome work of art and lovely colour combo.xx{aNNie My Personal Blog}

  8. Lovely box Patricia & those flowers are so pretty. What a beautiful scene, wish I had that view.
    hugs Jo x

  9. Such a beautiful box Patricia and your flowers are just incredible! I grew up on a ranch and spring was such a wonderful time of year! All the baby animals running around, it's hard not to be happy! So sweet! hugs :)

  10. Hi Patricia,
    What a lovely surprise to find you on here today. Love the box and would like the instructions please, one day when you have the time. Talking about time, I should go and finish my housework but I am glad you are taking time out for yourself.
    Love the pictures of the lambs, isn't Spring a lovely season?

  11. Well, this has only just appeared on my dashboard. It must have been their before or then again with this I pad anything can happen. You know me I love these boxes and the are addictive when you start making them. I was surprised with the colours combo, knowing you don't really do gold. Then again we often have to use what we don't like working with if the customer asks for something? It's beautiful and who ever is to receive it will be thrilled with it. Hazel x

  12. Such a lovely surprise to see you are here today and what a fantastic box so, so lovely. Yes we have had a hard frost again here too. I just love lambs they are so delightful, are there any sooty faces among them they are my real favourite?
    With love
    Margaret xx

  13. Beautiful box and tag Patricia.

  14. Well this is a lovely surprise when I clicked on your blog to see you had posted - love these boxes - weather here in Wigan Lancs is beautiful - no frost but a tad chilly at night, we have been out walking with the dogs today and really enjoyed it. Take care and enjoy watching the lambs - as everything they are not small for long - Jean x

  15. Hello Patricia, and lovely to see you back with this wonderful box, love your colours and embellishments on it.
    Gorgeous little lambs, no wonderf you get distracted by them, hugs Kate x

  16. Hi Patricia,
    another of your very stunningly beautiful boxes.
    I spy your superb roses too.
    Your lambs in the field reminds me of when we holidayed at Rumbling Bridge near Kinross, as every evening the deer in the field next to our lodge would appear to be fed.
    I was so enthralled watching them.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  17. Beautiful box and tag! Love the flowers!

  25. Hi Patricia
    These boxes are so lovely and useful. Have been lined up to show a friends daughter how to do them in the next school hols (must engage brain before putting mouth into gear when I agree to these things lol!)
    The lambs are sooooo cute. Hope they are not destined for the oven.
    Best wishes.

  26. It's a lovely box. I really should check the instructions and try to make one, though it would never match the ones you do.
    The lambs are so cute, I live watching them jump around.

  27. The box is stunning, love the flowers on it. The photo of the lambs makes them look so cute.


  28. Hi Patricia, a beautiful origami box, loving the colour combo. Your flowers as always are stunning.
    I used to have a pet lamb years ago, so very cute. I could watch them for hours too, we have piglets near us and although they are cute....it's just not the same. Must be all the squealing!

    Don't work too hard, hugs Erika. x

  29. Hi Patricia ,
    I just remembered after I mentioned this lovely box on Sandra's blog that I didn't leave a comment last night as I found it just as Sue's Show started! Typical me! I have quickly run back to tell you how much I love it. It's really pretty and I love the shape and your gorgeous flowers. Thank you.
    Love Myra xxx

  30. Wow Patricia what a stunning origami box design. The little lambs are sure cute.

    Hugs Diane

  31. Wow Patricia what a stunning origami box design. The little lambs are sure cute.

    Hugs Diane

  32. I have never seen these boxes before Where do I find the instructions! It's beautiful! Those lambs are just too cute. Lambs always remind me of my mum. As a little girl, she used to take bottles down to the village green where the farmer held a few orphaned lambs and they were allowed to help feed them

  33. Wow wow Patrica you box is amazing your very talented.
    Gorgeous little lambs what a fantastic view you have.
    Hug's Lynda xx

  34. Lovely box Patricia. The lambs look very cute.

  35. Your box is precious, but then your gorgeous flowers would make "anything" look wonderful! Of course your customer was pleased! Delightful picture & I bet these little critters are a great source of entertainment watching them frolic. I think my MoJo must be in hiding where yours might be as well. I keep waiting for it to come home....And yes, family always will get priority. Blogging & cards are fun, but that's a hobby. Family is Real Life! TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

  36. Hi Patricia, what a stunning box! Love the design and colours, cute photo too, hugs Carole Z X

  37. Sorry to hear that you've lost your mojo but I certainly can't tell from this stunning creation! It is so elegant and beautifully designed, I bet your customer was over the moon! What an adorable photo too!
