WOYWW 107 - and it's a bit late I know!

Well, absolutely zilch, nada, nothing on my work desk to show at present.And, this is why:

I tried to upload this photo yesterday and, as my baby pink notebook was running Ubuntu it just wasn't playing ball :( That's why I'm a day late as have defaulted back to MS Windows. And now we have success!

This is what I'm currently looking at - Estepona Marina in Southern Spain. Mind you, as threatened I've been doing some watercolouring late this afternoon so crafting isn't totally on a back burner!

I had a lovely email from Cardarian confirming that my PiF  has arrived so now I can post some photos of that too - they are front, back,top and inside of a little treasure chest style box I made:

Of course it's pink - what else would anyone expect of me. I painted it with umpteen coats of acrylic paint, added peeloffs to spell out WOYWW and coated it all with some matt varnish before adding pink organza ribbon with a lovely little pearl ribbon slider sent to me a while back by Dee, rows of pearls (thankfully all on strips) and the finishing touch on the lid was a selection of rmore pink ribbon, roses, leaves and such (from Wild Orchid crafts) which had been sprayed with Glimmer Mist. To add some more fun I enclosed a couple of rose scented votive candles. It's great to know that Dolores likes it :)

Right, that's my late WOYWW - if you're late looking do be sure to hop over to Julia's to join in the fun and frolics! I'm off to have a glass of vino and to put more cream on some mossie bites - the little perishers love me and one was hiding waiting for me last night!



  1. What a lovely box you created there, and so much work in it. It is good to know you are still managing to craft even on holiday. Have a lovely time and come back refreshed and raring to go.

  2. WOW - puts my PIF box to shame! LOVE what you've made, no wonder your recipient was delighted.

    Happy Hols . . . chin chin old fruit!

    Hugs, Sandra

  7. Hello Di, nice to hear from you even on holiday and that you are still getting a bit of crafting in. Love your little box - it's so pretty and feminine. Just for a nano-second I thought you had attached each pearl individually :) Enjoy the rest of your hols. Elizabeth x #74
