A Thingamyjig!!!

Not quite sure what this is called...............but it was fun to make.This pretty box opens to reveal................
.........little drawers which would be great for storing embellishments or a small sewing kit.
The drawers are an origami box folded out of a single piece of paper as is the lid.
I have strengthened the drawers with a piece of card and used a wet glue to assemble them into the box rather than DST.
The paper is Graphic 45.
Wasn't it nice to see the sun today?
My thoughts turned immediately to the garden and I started planning a few jobs for hubby to keep him!!!
This year we are going to dig up one half of the garden and make some raised beds to grow some veg. Really looking forward to that.
When I go shopping tomorrow I think I shall buy a pot of something cheerful for the kitchen window ledge. I quite fancy a pot of miniature daffs.
The sun has to be good for my health because as soon as it shows it's face I go in to salad mode and had the most delicious chicken salad with hubby's home made bread for tea.........he's quite fancies himself as a bit of a 'Hairy Baker'!!!
For the first time in a very long time I am feeling like my old self. Cheerful, smiley and full of beans. I think the workshop ladies found me quite scary!!!
I can't tell you just how wonderful it is. I thought I was lost forever.
Well on that note I shall get off and go and have a bit of a troll around Blogland.
Thanks so much for your visit.
