Makes it all worthwhile!!

So happy that my latest commission was so appreciated, thank you Claire for allowing me to share your lovely comments!

“- after giving the memory box – many tears , but in a lovely way. My friend couldn’t believe it and couldn’t believe that from a little brief you captured it so well. Please feel free to share now , with the glowing review that this gift means the world to friends who are parting. Thankyou xxxx”

I then got a wee message from the recipient just stating, ‘I adore it’.  What a great result, another box is being prepared so must get back to it!

I don’t usually colour theme my boxes but I seemed to have so many lovely duck egg blue items I ended up using some here.

I have used these masquerade faces before and this one matches the colour scheme perfectly, along with some vintage buttons.

When Edgar Allan Poe met Hammer Horror!

I am always amazed at the varied interests that lend themselves to amazing boxes!  No more so than my most recent one – the brief was unusual to say the least Edgar Allan Poe’s iconic poem ‘The Raven’ with a tongue in cheek reference to the old English Hammer Horror films (first one made in the 1930s!)  I have been given permission to upload some pictures and hope that it brings the new owner as much pleasure as I had making it!

Big box with pull out drawer!
