Back in the Box

Today, I took a break from DIY to get out and in to the fresh air. Yesterday perhaps wasn’t as wet as had been forecast but when I awoke to blue skies this morning, I knew I needed to take advantage of it.

Boxes for Christmas

Fear not, I’m still alive and I do still have intentions of getting back in the workshop before Christmas! Other things have been taking over lately and, as I did state recently, I’m enjoying a bit of a break from my seven-year-long ‘obsession‘ with this craft.

If I can, I’ll document them, write about them (not just here) and offer them for publication in a UK magazine. If I don’t keep them both then, I already have a recipient in mind for one and I may try to offer the other as well.
