Boxes and Cards

Happy Tuesday!!

Well today I start a different routine so I may not have daily posts, or fewer items as I know for the next few weeks at least, I will be settling into my new fulltime job so my crafting time is going to be cut way down but have no fear, I will still be doing what I can when I am able and posting so keep checking in :)

I have been able to put together a few new boxes that I'm trying different styles on and making some cards and envelopes. Excuse some of the photos as I am tired and guess it showed as some of the pictures are blurry lol.

I made this one for my oldest daughter's 1st wedding anniversay.  I love these easel cards!!  They are so easy and fun to see and what a nice way to display them without them falling over.

I made this one for my new boss :)  She was my boss from a previous position I had and she went above and beyond the call of duty and actually had my new position created just for me.  Now that is sweet!  We always joked around at our last job together that we were bff's as we were the only females in the group and of course all the guys would say that so I thought this was cute :)  Yup, another easel lol.

My Mom is always saying that she needs a card for this or that SO I decided to create a little storage box and some different occasion cards and give it to her as a little surprise.

I made the little storage box for this also.  I think I'm getting the hang of these things now lol

Since I have been making more cards, I wanted to organize a few of my supplies and I found these awesome binders that hold a lot over at Walmart.  They were only $3 a piece!!

This has my "in progress cards on the left and my finished ones on the right :)

My finished tags on the left and my "To Do" along with the watercolors on the right.

My stamps all in one place.  Now that is a nice concept let me tell you verses having to hunt where all you put them, especially the little ones lol.

Now all I have to do is grab my folder and I can sit and get some cards done.  I do have another one that I will be putting together with embelishments in to organize those next.

And one final box that I put together.  This is pretty cool!  It is big enough to put a larger wallet in if you'd like.  I think I will try a smaller version for cute little gifts too.  Endless possibilities with these boxes let me tell you :)

Don't forget to enter my 100+ follower GIVEAWAY to have the chance to win my "Thank You" gift, ending on Friday the 10th.  I will be announcing the winner Friday evening.

AND I am so blessed!!  I just found out I won yet another giveaway!!!  Lets see if the lotto tickets bring me luck too lol.  I won a mini album from Tracie over at Life and time sofa 12x12 addict.  Stop by her blog and say hi.  She's got some cute items!!

Well that's it for now.  I hope that you all have a wonderful week and hope to see you really soon :)  Happy crafting!!
