A very, very early good morning to you all!  I hope all's well!

Okay, it's almost 4 a.m. and I know I'm not nervous about my doctor's appointment later this morning, but for some reason I've been unable to get to sleep; maybe because I'm too conscious of trying not to swallow and then having a compulsion to swallow!  LOL!  That's when it really hurts!!!  Anyway, I decided since I wasn't sleeping I'd do something I enjoy to help pass the time (and take my mind off of swallowing) -- make a box!!!  So, thinking Christmas and determined to be ready ahead of schedule this year, I made this little box:

Oops!  What happened to my punched edge there to the right?!!!  Didn't notice that earlier!!!  Oh well..., someone is still going to get this for Christmas -- LOL!  I'll just tell them the the little torn scallop is the "naughty", heee-heeee!

Of course once I finished the box I thought I should have something "nice" to wrap up in some pretty Christmas tissue to  go inside the box,  so I made this matching little flower with ribbon and silk flower petals then attached a pin back to it to wrap up and tuck inside -- a quick gift:

I hope it'll really will make a nice gift and appreciated by whoever receives it!

Now that that's done I think I'm going to try giving a few hours of sleep another try!  I'll get back to you all after I get back home!

Hope you're having a great morning -- sleeping or crafting!  LOL!!!

I think it is so elegant and puts me in a Christmassy mood! :) I know whoever you give it to will love it! I'm sorry to hear you've been up. I am the same way, if I am sick I cannot get much sleep. Take care, get well, and hopefully you will be on some antibiotics really soon!

Hope you feel better soon!

What a fun idea! Sometimes I craft when I can't sleep too. You've got the right idea getting ahead on the holidays. Normally I do, but this year is gonna be rough in that dept! *LOL*

WOW,WOW,WOW, What a beautiful box. I didn't even notice the scalloped being torn at all, had to go back and look at if for a bit to even see it. Thanks for taking time to come visit me. It means so much :)

Your box is quite beautiful and you made me laugh right out loud when you said the part that was missing was the "naughty"! So funny. I'm sorry that you are in pain, and hope that it all works out quickly! Best, Curt

I do the same thing when I have an appt. Isn't it annoying!? Your project is just gorgeous, though. All I can do when I get up that early is stare at the computer! xxD
