Adorable Box

It's Tuesday!! I finally got home from work, feed the family cleaned up and now it's my time. I couldn't wait to get home so I could post this adorable box I made last night. I did get the measurements from Amanda, Thanks Amanda for sharing.

Adhesive Gun

It's Monday and I don't have to work!! YEA!!!!!

Ladies Ladies Ladies, this is a have to have. This adhesive gun was on my Christmas list. My hubby got it for me plus refills as you can see. He purchased it from framing supplies.

At first when I seen it I thought, boy this is a BIG gun. Well it's easy to use and as a messy stamper that I am I can't lose it in all the mess.

Were always looking for cheap adhesive cause we sure do go thru it. Refills for this gun are only $2.75 for 36 yards. That is a buy!! Adhesive for this gun works great!!!! I wasn't sure at first but I'm sure now, excited I got it. The gun itself was $36.00. You won't be disappointed with it.

Stationary Set

This is a kit from Stampin Up! called
"Simple Delights".

Kit comes with everything, even instructions to make 10 cards. It was a little plain for me and for those of you who know me I had to add my touch. Kit also comes in a box, couldn't throw that away so I decorated it to match my cards and added a pen. I was going to give it away for a gift but after putting it together, I couldn't part from it. That happens alot!!!

Sorry for the glare couldn't get rid of it.

This was my first workshop for the new year. These are my stamp-a-holic friends that never miss a workshop. There always ready to stamp. We always enjoy spending time and stamping together. This is what we call our girls night out!!!

I have always seen these little mail boxes on blogs decorated so cute. I finally found out that you can get them at Target for $1. Believe it or not my husband went to Target to pick them up for me, bless his heart gotta Love him!!!! The girls are having a good time covering them. If you scrolled down a little bit in my blog, you can see a picture of what it looks like when they were all done. This was a cute and fast project they all loved.

Gift Set

I'm a new blogger as you can see. Don't have a lot of practice with the camera which I will get better the more blogging I do. I'm so excited about my new blog site. I want to Thank Amanda Collins, my down line for helping me get my blog going.

Okay, on to the gift set I made my girlfriend. This set contains candle, clip board which has a pull out to put pictures in it. It also comes with bubble bath soap and a box of chocolate . I used brocade designer paper, always artichoke, very vanilla and chocolate chip cardstock. Ink is always artichoke and chocolate chip. Stamp sets used are Carte Postale and Priceless. I know the picture doesn't look that good. I was just to excited to get another post done.
