Will this cold ever leave?

Hello everyone, I seem to have been struggling with this cold since forever and it doesn't seem to shift properly. I can now get up and do some stuff at least which means I can show you what I did for my parents and parents in law for little pressies...
I made a recipe box for my mum for her favourite recipes. The hardest was to glue the box together, but it worked, hey!
For my mother in law I made a stationary box which has an address book, stamp pocket and holders for a pen, 6 cards, 6 notelets and 6 tags. I got the idea and instructions from Jackie, so thank you for that, it was great fun to make!
I also made a nugget tin, calendar with clear pocket to put different pictures/photos in, acetate tube and goodie bag with window for fudge. Oh and not to forget, a card! *lol* I think considering that I didn't have much time to do it all it came out quite nice.



























Oh dear, I seem to be posting masses of pictures lately... hope you don't mind too much! I try to be better next time and restrict myself to a couple or so.
