Opinions please......







Evening all, hope your all on the brink of a fab week-end, or a lazy and lolling about one.....lol...
I hope you can help me out here,I made this box to put some treats in for a friend, she never comes on my blog so no probs there....anyway, something about it isn't right, is it lacking something or does it need something....I can't put my finger on it at all, but it's driving me nuts....just not how I pictured it at all...feel really disappointed in it...what do you think...I mean REALLY think, should I ditch and start over.......hhheeeellllllllllpppppppppp....lol...

The pics are not good I know, but even thats not an excuse for it, the more I look the more I don't like what I'm seeing......oohhh dear....
can you see what I mean.....think I'd best try again.....must thanks Tilly for her contribution to this...re poinsetta and gorgeous swirls and I love them my lovely pal.... and the corners were from a candy from the lovely Mandy......oh I do get spoiled...lol....now c'mon, tell me is it the Bin or a re-fit....thankyou so much...hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxx

Hi Janette, look woman if you put this in the bin I'm gonna come and get it out! I think the outside of the box is absolutely beautiful, it's gorgeous honestly. If I had to add something, it would just be a gem or something in the centre of the snowflake, but to be honest that's only if you pushed me to find something.
Maybe the inside could be lined or something, but when you've got your gift inside it, it would look different anyway. The edges of the box tabs stand out to me is all, so I'd have to cover them up, but you should DEF NOT bin it.

carol said...

Hi Janette....WHAT YOU LIKE!!!There is nothing wrong with your beautiful box, have you been to the opticians lately...lol

please don't bin it your friend will love it. hugs carol ps have a lovely weekend, x carol

Drat, Tilly got there first! There's nothing wrong with the box Janette - it's gorgeous. Now I'm one of those odd people who love Turkish Delight (the real stuff mind) so instead of going to the bother of sending it to Tilly, send it to me instead! :) LOL

I am laughing my butts off of these funny comments :o)) hee hee hee! Don't you dare bin this lovely box! Your friend'll like it, I bet!! And I like it too. But I do understand that it's aweful when u think it's not nice and are totaly unsatisfied with the result. No matter what all others say, you still won't like it. Maybe it's too much glitter and sparkle whem you look at it, or there is another colour missing (for instance somethin in black)...yes, actually I think some black spots would be not such a bad idea...like a black piece of lace or another black ribbon or some pearls...
Oh anyway, if I had it in my mailbox, I'd love it, 'cause it was from you and made with love (LOL, maybe not this one, otherwise you would like it...only jokeing)!!
xoxo, Alessandra
PS: Sorry, I will not comment the next week, I'll be in Ireland on vacation...

Well this has been such a fun read through all these posts Janette. I hope you listen to them all as I so agree this is such a lovely box. I also agree if I was to do anything at all....it would be to add a gem or matching beads to the snowflake as you have on the holly in the other corner. I bet your friend loves it.

Aunty Sue said...

Hi Janette now you know me and I never lie do i and i always tell how daft you are what stunning things you make well. Sorry this is total pants and think they only place this should go is in MY BIN NOT TILLYS. Lol got you. Dont want sweets or ribbons just the box. Ok guess it is lovely and you should keep for your friend if you really must but looks like you have a queue for it if she doesnt get it.

Susan Flynn said...

Hi Janette like everyone else I think your box is gorgeous if one of my friends made it for me 1. I would collapse because none of them are crafty ha ha 2. I would absolutely love it and treasure it. xx

Lisa said...

bluebell said...

hi janneta,i like the box,dont through it out. maby if anything the image in the center round, would have stud out a bit more if you had used a black ink image,to contrast with the colour surounding it. maby you could just do another round and black image,and lay it on top to see what you think, you could lay it over the other one.hope you dont mind my surgestion,things dont go right for me, and i ask foe advice to,love bluebell-flowerwoodx.

coops said...

well i think you need to go to specsavers.i can not see anything wrong at all and i think if you added to it, you would spoil it.the vintage image and colours are stunning ;D
