It makes it feel very luxurious.

Gratitude boxes

These are special one off handmade altered art creations – a treasure box of               
* Affirmations*Gratitude*Abundance *Blessings*
A beautiful tool for focusing on the blessings in our daily lives.
Gratitude helps maintain a positive attitude, because you train your mind to focus on and acknowledge your blessings on a daily basis. When you consciously feel grateful for the abundance that exists in your life you are bound to feel more love, joy and happiness all around you.

These special box I have hand created  are full of  beautiful handmade tags.
Every single piece is original handmade and one of a kind.
I have had a fascination with boxes since watching the movie “House of the spirits”. When Winona Ryder opens her mothers amazing box full of treasures, keepsakes and memories. I love the thought that your gratitude is captured beautifully in a sacred space. It is something that has stayed with me and moved into my creative heart! 

These are my latest offerings....

on ebay soon!!!


Box 2


Byron Bay 2012- custom made album for AMY

Sunshine flowers nature and a touch of 70's hippy!
This has been such a fun album to make. 
I've never been to Byron bay-  so I'm hoping that the ideas i had about sunshine and brightness will suit?
It was a bit tricky combining the "funky tigerlily" papers and the "wonder" album, so i used the cream to tie the ideas together.
There's loads of room with no designated photo areas. A few travel quotes sprinkled throughout and hopefully a touch of sunshine!!
Hope you like it Amy- looking forward to your comments

Cover- I've kept simple with space for a cropped photo beneath the heading!

Note the butterfly charm on the ribbon, which is fixed so you can slip the photo underneath

A mix of funky summer flowers and gentle sunshine cream- I've added 2 flaps here with no designated areas for photo's, so you can cut and paste a collage if you wish :)

the flaps open to reveal some quotes, as a textural element I have added some sunny orange corflute card

I've added a sneaky little pocket here for note

I've been extra sneaky and added a pocket under a photo area with 2 massive tags for notes. I love the "hemp" braid- its very textural and Hippy!

As well as all that I have added ANOTHER page to the layout

more extra pages as well as a flap

I've added the ribbons so you can slip photos underneath

I've added a few paper roses throughout

detail under the flap

whats hiding under this extra page?

Yes couldnt help but add some texture with this gorgeous corflute chipboard

hmmm more hidden areas and texture

under the bag flap hides a flap

even the back has room for a photo!

you can get an idea here of how thick this album is!
