moments to remember
After some heavy years life starts to shine on me again, thank you.
To remember the important moments I have made a few little boxes that mark different events.
The round one is one of my grease boxes, this is a memory of the love and hope it gave me to be a member of LJ and all the funny moments and learning I got here.
The pine box in the back holds a cork of a bottle of Champagne that was opened and enjoyed on the day I got my private pension after having to give up working due to health; this meant that I could pay my bills and no more worries for the everyday life.
The Purple heart box in the front holds two corks, since when I got the public pension after four years of fighting it was time to celebrate even more, so two bottles of good Champagne and the company of my new girlfriend was how that was done.
The two little boxes are also made of Purple Heart.
1. The boxes and my old grease box.
2. Glue up (the box in the back will come on a later blog of how to make these).
With this post I also take the chance to wish all my LJ friends a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Hope this can inspire others to save those precious moments.
