Exploding box

Another one off the list! I might be tempted do make a list more often as I love seeing it shrink LOL

Have you noticed that there is absolutely no housework on it :) I have a house like a tip, not one but two piles of ironing and three full wash baskets!! MiL is arriving tomorrow for the weekend and we have 22 for a bbq on Sunday for my mum's birthday for which I need to bake and prepare food all day on Saturday and set up the marquee etc on Sunday morning.

So onto the box
This is the brief I got from my customer (it's the fourth one I've done for the lady)
Hello Jackie
I mentioned to you that I would like another of your boxes for a wedding. The details are:
Kay and Graham getting married on Saturday 9 August 2008. She will be wearing a traditional dress and having orchids. They have a chocolate labrador dog, like motor bikes and cars and have a caravan and have a rabbit! I hope this is useful?

I left out the cars as I made one for the brides sister last month and used cars on that one. The orchid in the middle of the box was (loosely) modelled on the orchid pic above. Mine looks decidedly ropey at the side of it :)

The box has now gone from the list so next is the jewellery and box for my mum and the phone charm.
another breast cancer awareness phone charm
start my samples for Debbi Moore Started
Necklace and keepsake box for mum's birthday

The following two are the start of next week's list.

100 Christmas cards, order confirmed
Seating plan, 9 table names and 80 place cards

Enjoy your evening. TFL
