Tissue box and secret box

Easter wishes to all visiting today, hope you all have a blessed Easter. It's been a long day. I didn't do a huge amount, but got the dishes done. Yesterday I had a problem with the car and my son knows someone who works at Holdens and he offered to look at it for him so he pinched my car for about an hour. It has been coming up quite often that the stability control is off and then yesterday it flashed up check engine and stayed on all the way home. I was a bit anxious about driving it through all the heavy traffic to get back home. My son's friend said the car is okay but it is a glitch in the computer so deleted them so that it stopped appearing on the dashboard and also found that there is a wire upgrade available for the car so that should be done too. It was a relief to know that there is nothing major wrong with the car. I spent the afternoon clearing all my craft bits and pieces from the dining room table/room as the whole family were coming for tea. Roast pork and all the trimmings and hot cross buns to follow. We have a very small cottage about 100 miles away in a country town left to us by my husband's Mum and we used to go quite regularly for weekends up there, better in the winter and you can have a campfire in the back yard and sit around talking or cooking out there. Well most of the family are going to be there for various parts of Easter so my youngest daughter thought we should get together today so we could all be here. I am staying home as I will be singing in the choir at church tomorrow for the Good Friday service and then again on Easter Sunday. I am also now looking after our two dogs and my eldest son's dog as they have gone camping and then maybe tomorrow I get another son's dog as well. The neighbours are going away tomorrow as well and have two cats that I am now feeding and letting in and out of the house twice a day.
I have had no time to craft so I'm going to share some pics of the tissue box cover and the little secret box I made. One tissue box is pale blue with white trim and the other is all white - both are embossed. I've also included two pictures from my son and new DIL's wedding.
Thanks for stopping by,
Take care and have a happy and safe Easter.
