Pretty in Pink

Good day, friends…

Welcome to Leisure Lane, where I’ve been creating some gift boxes.  It was inspired by a lovely decorated match box I won a few years ago from the talented Terri, and her delightful blog, Artful Affirmations.  This one I decided to keep for myself.  It was my first try, and I’m very happy with the way it turned out.

IMG_1680 The colors are so soothing that I decided to use it in my meditation, and it’s perfect for keeping pretty ribbons, lace remnants, buttons, or beads for future projects…don’t you think?   I’ve created a second box which I’ll share in my next post.

You can also see my paper creations on my new Pinterest board.  I just started it, and hope to add more boards soon.

Thank you for stopping by today.  May your day be full of pretty things.  Until next time, may happy days abound!

Marianne ♥

    Oh, Marianne, you have been so very busy. Your cards and your box are so lovely. Your heart is just so full of many wonderful things. I adore you and your creations. I thank you so much for the beautiful card that you sent me. I have been so busy at work lately that I don’t know which way is up sometimes. Plus I’m helping a friend with her wedding plans and there never seems to be a moment. Oh yes, I will have to also check you out on Pinterest. To tell you the truth, I’ve never been on there, so I hope I can find you ok.
    Love you bunches,
