Sorry, I've been away the last several days, things have been pretty hectic. I've had so much going on with things to do for my aunt, household things, and even having to sit in both an emergency room and my dentist's office because I had a really nasty fall. After being checked out, I'm okay!!! I still have to return to the dentist though because there was too much swelling in my face for them to get a full x-ray to make certain I don't have any fractures to the lower gums-- I fell on my face with my bottom jaw hitting the concrete first and taking the brunt of the fall. I think it'll all be fine however, as after the initial shock of falling, I have no pain -- thank God!!! Although I'm accident prone, this was not my fault. There was a slight rise in the sidewalk where the 2 blocks of concrete met, which happened to be on a slope, so the tip of my foot hit the rise and away I went flying through the air without the greatest of ease...lol! I'm laughing because I really do feel fine and it all seems kind of funny now. I think once all the swelling goes down, they'll find my worse injury was that I bit through my lip.
Anyway, I've still got lots to finish up (and the never-ending errands to run for my aunt), including another blog hop and DT project within the next week; therefore, I will be in and out of here until I get caught up. I will, however, make time to drop in on you as I can, and even try to sneak in a small project I'm almost finished working on before then.
The project I'm sharing with you today is one similar to something I saw a while ago browsing the internet. I feel in love with the original but I didn't know how the creator did hers, so I had to fashion my own. Mine is a smaller and condensed version, and not as nice but overall I think I did okay. I thought this little box would make a wonderful gift for a boss, co-worker, or even a teacher to place on their desk. To describe it, it's a frame attached to an easel lidded box (just like on the easel cards) that sits upright to display the insert in the frame while also allowing access to the note paper inside the box. I've inserted the words "Live, Laugh, Love" into the frame but it can also hold a small photo (great for a picture of the new grandchild, right?!!!). Well..., see for yourselves! Here is the box opened with the frame in an upright position on the easel so that the frame insert can be displayed while allowing access/exposing the note sheets inside the box:
Here is the box fully open to the note sheets inside:
This next photo shows the box completely closed (a top view):
And this final picture shows the box from the side (a view of the frame on the easel):
I will be doing a cut.file for this box but, right now, I really can't promise when. Also, I haven't forgotten about doing a tutorial on the wedding box, so that too will be when I have more available time. I will get to them both as soon as I can.
I'm sorry to have to be out of here again but I really do have a lot going on right now! As I said I'll be in and out often enough that I won't miss you too much -- nor you me! LOL!!!
In the meantime, I'm extending my love to you all!!! Thank you for taking time to stop by and as always...
I'll be seeing you!
