Got Worries, Dreams or Wishes.…

Apr 23, 2008

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.

A little place to store those not so little worries, dreams and wishes.

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.
