What's On My Workdesk This Wednesday...??

A box! Not sure what used to be in it. Cigars, Port, Jellies Babies, who knows? Sister-in-law gave it to me. We're cat sitting her cats for the next fortnight, while she flies off to somewhere sunny. People are always giving me boxes. Usually Cardboard and usually empty. But this one looks interesting!! I want to do something with it. Paint it, embellish it, stick things on it and keep little crafty things inside it. Coz it's nice, in't it??
I love the little catch. I might take that off first, and put it back when I've finished. But first, I wanna collect 'things' to go on it. Not sure what yet. Any ideas welcome!
So this is what's on my desk this Wednesday, at One in the morning. What's on yours? Pop over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground to see what's on everybody else's workdesk... If you haven't done it before, you'll be surprised, in fact, you'll wanna join in too! I'm at work. This is on timer and Hubby said he'd link me coz he's at home... (hahahaha...I won't put money on it!)
New Followers (((wave!!)) tabitha4cm and America Kuhn both out the back and in the dark with no links but I think this might be Cards by America fabulous cards and a House Mouse Fan!! Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry You've missed This Weeks Wednesday Freebie:

  19. Fabulous box - take your time - it will let you know what it wants to be! Maybe just do one surface a week and have a journal box instead of a book!

  24. Love the box - you must be a great one to give gifts to (like my kids - always liked the boxes just as much ;) How about put a bird on it? I only say that because I just finished watching this video and ROFL http://www.ifc.com/videos/portlandia-put-a-bird-on-it.php
    Have a great week.

  35. Ooo vintage decoupage images is what I would put on the outside. On the inside, hmm, well I would probably do some of my delicate crafties, or maybe special stamps, just not sure. Love the little mousy, he is too cute, thanks Spyder!

  36. Such a cute valentine mouse. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Poor bird is right...but since it was filmed on the West Coast the bird must be a member of SAG. I'm sure it was only play acting, since there are unions involved. I'm also sure that your box will be gorgeous as everything you do is! Have a creative week girlie!

  52. Beautiful box! I have no idea what you can do with it though, I collect stuff to alter but cos I've never done it before I don't have the confidence to try, so they just sit around and collect dust!

  54. I love that box just as it is, and I would probably use it to store pens or pencils in to look posh. I like wood as it is, then I can stroke it as I go past.

    ReplyDelete
  55. oooh that box is gorgeous... I have...box envy ROFL

    ReplyDelete
  56. What a fab looking box i would use it to store pro markers in it looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

  57. Wow, this is your 59th comment this week! Lovely box - won't make suggestions of how to decorate because we all have different tastes and you'll probably think yeeeuk!! Still, I look forward to seeing what you do with it and what you put inside :) Love the mouse image - will be great for kids' birthday cards so thank you for making it available. Elizabeth #60

  58. The mouse is so cute! Thank you!

  59. Hi Lyn, I am sure you will create something wonderful on the box. I think some of Tim Holtz little metal frames with family pics on it would look nice for a vintage look.
    By the way my Hubby is blaming you for me going to the market and getting a Haggis (LOL)
    Keep Well, Chris

  60. Lyn,

    I've never seen a cigar box that beautiful before. I wonder if it was an old jewelry box. It has a gorgeous clasp on it, too. Being a lover of wood, I can't tell you I would paint it, but I love it. Sorry I didn't visit last week. As you read, I was in crisis mode. Happy belated WOYWW from #10.
