My latest craft swap

Over on CraftMad, we have regular monthly swaps.    Some of us are hoping to actually meet up in person in October 2013 in Brisbane, so we decided to do a money box swap.

I have already received mine - here is a pic ;-)

I love it ................ very me ;-)

After struggling to come up with an idea, I attempted to put a wooden kit together.  With Christmas it got a bit waylaid - I started sanding in preparation of decorating and there it sat for a while.  When I came to put it together, it needed more sanding as the slots did not fit properly :(  then after decorating, I decided to test putting it together to see how it was coming along - it didn't fit again, and in my eagerness frustration, I broke some bits.  So it got put aside for a few days.

After some thought, I decided to emulate what my partner had sent me and decorated a box.  So here is my creation.

thank you Secret Santa ;-)

After reading this post, pop on over to my sewing blog HERE and see what I have sewn for our last CraftMad Family Quilt block swap.  I am hope to make up a picnic blanket with these blocks.

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
