Yet more time away

Once again, my world has gone crazy. I'm attempting to get as much done as possible over the next couple of weeks in preparation for Jr. to arrive, leaving me little time to post. So, I'm signing off for a couple of weeks, returning in early March for a couple of more weeks (hopefully) before Jr. makes an appearance.

Thank you everyone for checking in so often. For your blogging enjoyment while I'm away, here are a few blogs I've been enjoying lately:

Boxes 'n' things

As noted in my last post, here are some images of some items I took over to Black Door Studio last week:
Coral entanglement keepsake box (6” w x 6” l x 2.875” t)

Copper red floral keepsake box (5" w x 8" l x 3" t)

Gold and green floral keepsake box (4" w x 5" l x 3" t)

Flower dragonfly keepsake box (5.75" w x 5.75" l x 2" t)

Cherry blossoms blank card and matching custom envelope

I've stopped calling my boxes gift boxes, and now refer to them as keepsake boxes. It's amazing to me what a difference a description can make. Gift boxes imply one-time use, while the boxes I make are sturdy, made from acid-free matboard and will last. They're great for display on a shelf and to keep miscellaneous items - photos, keepsakes, collections of plastic miniatures... many things.
