fun stuff


I am on such a card kick lately! I have this nice box and I love filling it up with handmade cards!

This is a box - like a footlocker - that my husband got at the dump (oops, I mean, "recycling center"!) and I painted over it with some really loud paint for the girls to use as a dress up box! Today I put it in the playroom with rave reviews! E said: "Oh! It's beautiful!" which was all the kudos I needed! Needless to say, there were some dancing princesses and power rangers who were very happy today!

great job with both the cards and box. As sad as this is while walking I check out others garbage for things to refinish, possibly scrap. The treasures you can find.

wow! everything is fabulous Laurie! See what happens when I don't check in on you for a few days.. you post double the amount! Love it!! I adore the kindred spirits card you sent me. The trunk is so clever. I may need to "borrow" the idea when I'm redoing our room downstairs!
