MY NEW TOOLBOX!

Hi all you lovely bloggers!  I just couldn't help it you know.....I was so pleased with this!!!  Well...you might thinks its crap hahahahaha!!!! I got a blank wooden ...well I suppose its supposed to be a letter rack in a DIY store ages ago with a view to painting it up to house all the crap tools on my desk....

Apart from the fact that I needed to to something about the said mess tools I also couldn't resist those fabulous feet that Tim Holtz designed & bought this letter rack just so that I could use them!  NO not his toes but these gorgeous things...

I know some of the border stamping is a bit off but hey...its art isn't it? hahahaha!  Here it is in use...see I told you there was a lot of crap!!!

If you are wondering how I kept much of the stuff upright, I have put cut down loo roll tubes inside!!!

Thank you for taking a look today, LOVE & HUGS XXX
