How was your weekend? On Saturday we visited my parents and significantly managed to get them to agree to have a live in carer. I just have to get that sorted now. We followed this by meeting up, for a Christmas meal, with our daughter, son-in-law and his parents. The venue was the Heron on the Lake in Fleet and they do a very good festive meal. On Sunday we caught up on lots of Christmas jobs. I have felt like I have been chasing my tail since we came back from holiday.
My mother-in-law loves good quality dark chocolate (much like me). We usually buy her several bars of chocolate and I make a box for them. She uses the boxes I make for many different things.
I do like making boxes. Using a scoring board makes this very easy. Before I make the box up I cut the lattice into the card stock and stick some acetate behind.
The Poinsettias were made with dies from the John Next Door range. I added a ribbon to make the box more festive.
I know my mother-in-law will love this box. I wonder what she will use it for afterwards.
We are doing something very exciting tomorrow. With friends we are going to see Michael Bublé
at the O2 in London. Our travel plans have been affected by the strikes but that is all sorted now. I will let you know how we get on.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Have a great week
