Heart Shaped box

Heart Money Box: Barry Lean

As I mentioned barry (my bloke) made me a new money box, because when I broke his new toy/garget (at £80) there was no way I was going to let him 'forget about it'. Instead I smashed my shoes fund jar (aka the saving haha) and MADE him take it. He felt guilty because he is just beyond sweet (and a fool haha) and made me this wonderful money box, how great is he. Sorry but I don't usual talk about us, but this is one of the nicest things someone has ever done for me. I think the money will have to be spent when I'm old, because I really don't ever want to smash it to get to the money inside, so it actual works as a saving box.


I was thinking of stencilling the top at same point, but am scared of destroying it. I love the layers at the side and I really hope that he does more things like this as I just adore this. 

In other news here, I told you about mine and Barry's new project called 'UBER ART' we have the first lot finished so I hope you like them. I think they turned out really well, for those of you who don't know Barry is a part time photography and we decided to work together on this project will we will be doing more so keep an eye open. If you have any questions about UBER ART ..like prints or wanting to use it same where please email me.

Thank you so much for all your comments, and making me laugh on twitter. I have a heap of cool posts coming ...I know I always say that but I do.
