Another wonderful project, Jim!!! I love the accordion of pockets--very creative! I am simply amazed at how you constructed the heart box! Thanks for sharing.


Stunned, speechless!!! So cool!
The chain assembly is marvellous, and the idea of "TEN things i love" is great.
Really looking forward to your next project.


Absolutely stunning! All that detail & craftmanship. Your recipient is going to be overjoyed with such a thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gift. Oh to have an ounce of your patience & talent. Px

The Gentleman Crafter


You and I have crafted so many things together!  Spent hours and hours on the phone talking about our projects!  You have endured my house at Christmas, which is an incredible challenge!  I have been privileged to be in your studio many times-inspiring to say the least!  I am honored to call you friend Nancy!  Thank you for kind words, friendship and support all these years!

Your Valentine,

The Gentleman Crafter

WOW!!  Thanks so much Sarah! 



You are one talented guy! I have been checking out your blog for months and continue to be blown away. I believe you could give Tim a run for his money!


Where do I start? First off, welcome back, as you can tell we missed you! Next you need to change your blog title to the Box Creator. I love the interactive workings of this one. I can only imagine how many pages the pdf is going to be, if you ever decide to do one, I wouldn't :). Finally, hmmmmm are we seeing the secret wild side of Sir Jim? Thanks for sharing.

The Gentleman Crafter


What a compliment Thanks!!  However, Tims the man!  What an incredible and brilliant mind he has!  Not to mention the talent and magic he brings to everything he touches!  I can only aspire to be even half as good!

Thanks Again!

The Gentleman Crafter

Thanks Lori! 

It was a fun project!  I dont think I have stared at an empty heart box for so long wondering what in tarnation I could do to it!  Between my gazing and satellite Internet problems(that wont be fixed until the 11th!...Dont move to a rural area unless you really love it!) there was a hitch in the posting!  HAHAHA!

Yes, if there was a pdf for this it would be voluminous to say the least!  I did take all the pictures and made all the notes though!  So maybe by next Valentines Day! :)  Todays project is less intense so hope to have it up later.  Ive been playing the timer game today!  Set the timer, work on cleaning the house, set the timer, work on the project, set the timer, fold the clothes, set the timer, work on the project!  See how that works?  LOL!  Obviously, the timer went off ten minutes ago and Im still here on the computer!  Better get running!

Thanks Again Lori!

Denice Metz
