Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC168

I've made a few changes lately ... Sometimes Life calls for that 
I love creating, making projects for my Thursday club to assemble ... last week I made 20 exploding boxes with embellishments ... ready for them to put together ... how sweet they looked carrying them home ... and being on Design Teams is a dream come true ... 
But with everything else in life ... I was very much lacking in time ... Time to create "just because" ... and little time to enter challenges and support the wonderful blogs who take the trouble to set these challenges.


Having now enlisted help at Thursday club ... Hopefully I will now only have to come up with a project every 4 weeks ... and after 6 years I have stepped back from philosophy class too ... 
So with my DT projects up to date ... I was able to just create with no pressure



I'd had this little heart box for ages ... and there she sat ... naked ... just waiting to be adorned ... 
At Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ... Silke (who makes the most beautiful cards) has set a challenge to use Pink ... 
So pink it is


Papers from Melissa Frances ...


... Rose from Hobbycraft ... trinkets from my box of old and odd bit of jewellery ... Yep, that key and the heart came from earrings ...


Tiny little beads ... I hand stitched onto the lace which I overlaid on satin ribbon


Now she looks much better and I feel better too

Have a lovely day

Yes, changes are inevitable from time to time...
Your box is so very pretty now! The soft pink is perfect for the heart-shaped box and your style of embellishing things is unequalled!
Enjoy you weekend!

it's so lovely! I love the little stitched on beads. Having that little down time to be free with your creativity really is a blessing and stress reliever. This bit of gorgeousness is a smile maker. :-) Hugs!

I agree sometimes you have to change some things in your life to make things easier.
Oh my gosh, the box is gorgeous, I love how you use old jewelery as charms, such a good idea. Deb xxx

Paring back in life obviously has caused more artistic flourishes!! Beautiful box. Changes are hard - hope you're settling into them and enjoying a bit more head space and time to just be! xx
