A Chest For all My Charms /Trinkets

Good Morning wednesday ive not been around much i seem to have left my Mojo at the hospital after getting my Results on Monday.Whihc now i am being referred to Neurologist Consultant as they think highly likely i have MS.So that would explain my loss of sight rt eye and since Sunday loss of the use of my left arm and down my lft side of face .Anyways only have until 12th May to wait!
Thank heavens i was able to craft after last weeks post when you all saw my charms and trinkets .I needed something to hold them in so .I had an old chest which didnt really like was going to through out......So i altered the design on it so i changed it!Instead of throwing away my scrasps paper used them too recycled 2 into
I painted with gesso first after sanding down then painted with Kaiser Egg Shell paint .
Used scraps designer paper torn with friskas's edgy ruler. Randomly stuck onto my box.
I then got some tiles and distressed with inks to add to the front .I had this lovely handmade rose i received in a RAK i added to the front.

I then used up some ribbon and stuck that down using my cordless glue gun...whihc is a godsend!
I then added Cracklepaint to the top of the box .Completely let it dry /crackle
Then i inked over the crackled surface with distress inks old paper and Antique linen.Then used dry baby wipe to reveal the image.Have stamped and inked around the design papers and edges.
This is what i designed the box for...

Rather alot i know i just collect hoard !
So now they are all nicely in one place.

WOYWW....94....Certainly Not My Mojo

Good Morning all i cant get my head round the fact we are nearly in April !Where has this year gone.Maybe spending every wednesday doing the .If you'd like to do the same then why not pop by Julia's blog the Stamping Ground find out what it's all about join in the fun.Well i didnt do so bad last week got round most of you apart from a couple with wrong links but hey how will try again this week.
First of all i have a wee game for you yes .On my floor is a box which i received last Thursday What i want you to try and guess is what ever came in it.Now dont cheat the piccy and answer is at the bottom of this post.I will give you a clue it came Via courier DHL........
Now im afraid my mojo has gonna a missing im suffering this week So pleased i have got my 100th WOYWW creation made incase it dont return!.I cant use the left arm .I went back to hospital on Monday for my results and they have referred me over to Neurology now and have to wait until 12th May to see consultant .So im sure what im experiencing down my left side of face also is to do with what he told me that it's highly likely i have MS.
All these letters i should put after my name you now as htese proffessionals do.
Jude..RGN ........ME/CFS,MS.FIBRO
Im trying to find my Mojo i think must stayed at
I have 3 things on my desk im at present trying to do .Below as you can see have had distress inks out and getting inky over weekend whihc still here today.Plus a Domino tile i altered and covered with Clear Rock stickles.Ready for some inspiration to finish.

This shows couple other projects for mothers day on Sunday whihc doesnt give me long to get sorted .Had to cover one up on the right as is DT creation you can just see the spray of blue flowers.
Now after showing you all my wee charms and trinkets last week .I had creative inspiration to take them out an old stampin up box and fill my chest with them whihc i did but felt it was too plain.
So on wednesday and thursday i covered and created it into a chest for my charms .
Do hope you like what ive done .
Top of chest covered in bits torn papers crackl;e paint and old paper and antique linen inks added.
This is the front of my box i may still add somemore bits to top of the chest when mojo returns.As think it looks bit bare .Dont you?
The wee ribbon i was sent in a swap.If you want to see more piccys will be above this post as ive entered it into a challenge or two.

Now for the biggie...yes delivered by DHL whom i told i hadnt ordered anything big.
Hubby was there also and he hadnt .The only thing id ordered was abook!
Tim holtz book ive been after .DHL man said nope wont be that!
What awaste of money and packaging .Yes it was my Tim Holtz book off Amazon came in box this size by DHL.......Laughable but at same time what a waste of money.IT could have easily gone large letter recorded.The good thing was i opened it up and DHL man was sat outside doing paper work .I just shouted yep was my book!He came out to check we laughed but at same time what waste .Obviously Amazon have money to waste!Still can't beleive it really..laughable
Anyways thanks for all the lovely messages and i will hope to get round you all this week again.
Health permitting
Love n hugs
