Better to give than receive........

I am by nature generous, some would say far too generous but I do love giving gifts and thinking up ways to give something homemade is something I love about this time of year.
Last night I picked up this forlorn looking box which has been gessoed then put to one side for inspiration to strike.

 and strike it did.  I messed around with some Christmassy ornaments, gorgeous papers by echo park and my collection of Christmas stamps.

It was great fun. and the perfect box to present this candle in.
A mistletoe fragranced candle mixed by me.
Got a very special lady in mind for this for Christmas!

Thanks for coming to look today - if you could leave a comment that would make me smile.


  1. Hiya Clarky, Debbie here.
    What a fab box, just love it and like you I love doing that too, taking a bare boring box and making it look so nice.
    Love the candle in it too, it will smell so Christmassy.
    Take care and hope to see you in the New Year.
