Boxed Set

Hello hello hello!



Before I start on my post I would just like to take a moment of silence to honor and respect all those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. It was a tragic day, a day that will always be in our hearts. I pray that all the families that lost loved ones will always know they are never forgotten!



And on a more pleasant note, I would like to wish my Daddy (I know I'm almost 31, but he will always be my Daddy) a very Happy Birthday!



It's been quite some time since I last posted on here, and let me just tell you it feels Ohhhh soooo good to be back! I was feeling a little in a slump, like I wanted to give up paper crafting all together and pursue something else! Sheesh What was I thinking? Paper crafting runs through my veins! It's as much a part of me as I live and breathe! Last night I made a pair of earring's (my new hobby I want to try my hand at) to give to someone who recently watched our dog for us while we were away...then I thought, hey I need to package it nicely... plus I had to created a project to showcase today, so I made this super cute box and matching 3x3 card, pretty helpful to have a batch of new supplies waiting for you when you get some too, that gets a girl in a crafting mood!





So tell me? What do you think of my little box and card? Arent the earings super cute? They are my first ones that I have ever made, but I love them...I love their simplicity and how they can go with pretty much anything! Plus it was my first time using a head pin! All in all I think it was a very successful project and I pray that the person I give it too will appreciate it!





And a little pic of the box and card all ready to be given...altough I still need to sign it!

I think its all fabulous. I am sure they will appreciate and love the earrings you made. A break and trying soemthing new is not a bad thing and I am glad you stepped back for a bit and are trying something else. Its always a fresh feeling when you come back. It is good to see you! :0)
