Morning all.

Not a Normal day to post from me but with this weather the way it has been I have had a lot of time to craft. I love to make different things out of old boxes and it seem I get a sort of satisfaction out of seeing what I come up with. I started with a plain cardboard box and this is what I end up with.

Well true to form I am out today and it looks like I am going to get wet, yesterday was a good day and I did not have to go out, I am sure someone is watching me and waits till I go out and them think lets have some rain.. I am going to Bristol Museum.
