New year new ideas

HI guys hope you all had a great new year we had a quite one,
we stayed at home, Then i did my back in so could not do a lot
but I could crochet lol
Today I did get to alter this box I used wrapping paper from Primark
lol and it only cost a £1.
I cover the entire box with it letting is scrunch up to give an older look,

I added some lace and organza ribbon 2 pairs scissors 
a little flower arrangement and a hart, on the front I use a large button
that is from Angela Holt's shabby chic kit and the top lace is also from the kit. 
Just befor Christmas we got some great new a close friend of ours are 
having a baby and its a girl so as all I could do was crochet I made this blanket
and knitted 2 little hats.
So I was able to do some crafting just not what I wanted lol
I can not wait to craft properly a few more rest days and I will be
sorted I hope.
So thank you all for all your support in 2013 and 
here is to some amazing things for 2014 
O and watch this space for some amazing news.....

Thank you for stopping by

Love & Hugs
