Thought I'd say  'Hello' - it feels such  a long time since I was here. I didn't manage to get the crafting time I'd hoped for whilst the builder was busy - probably too much of a nosey parker wanting to see what was  happening in what looked like kitchen demolition, and once the new units were being installed - well - I couldn't stop myself making teas and coffee so I could see what was happening next.  The kitchen is now operational, although I can't find anything!
Saying I can't find anything - that also goes for my missing mojo - so, I will show a box that I made about a month ago and just never got round to sharing.  We'd had something delivered and it came in some 1/2" thick corrugated card, and not wanting to be wasteful,  made something useful.
It measures 5" sq.  I lined it with card and made a divider.  Lined the sides, and distressed the corners.
 I used 4 paper napkins, glued to card - and distressed the edges
Decorated the inside with another napkin,  and sealed it with PaperArtsy Satin Glaze. Glued binding around the top and now its the perfect storage for my paint brushes.

Before I go looking for Mr Mojo, I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers and Thank you for joining me on my crafty journey, where I hope normal service will be resumed shortly.

Gorgeous box, love what you made with it, so inspiring. I think Mr. Mojo likes to travel, he often leaves me, but he always comes back, which I know he will do for you too. Big hugs, ~Diane
