Got Worries, Dreams or Wishes….
At the moment, I seem to have all of the above so I created this little box mainly to keep my hands busy and to place the above mentioned in to let them fall as they may. I have a wish/dream that is so close to coming true it causes me great worry but in the end if all goes well it will be incredible to have reached a goal I have had for the past few years. If it doesn’t happen well I am not giving up and will go to plan B.
Here is a little tutorial on recreating this little box in case you have a few worries, dreams or wishes you need to store away for awhile.
