For You My Friend


Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.

And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.

Anyway, hope you like it.

My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)

Have a super Saturday.

Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

I came looking for your hop project and found this amazing box you created a few weeks ago! So happy it worked out that I had time to come say hello. This is great, Rebecca...that pin is gorgeous with your gift box. I'll be back for your hop project in a bit! Happy Friday dear lady!
Hi Miss Rebecca. Happy I too could stop in for the hop and come across this beautiful box. I like the colors and swirls. And PP Stick Pin gives your box added fun but elegant look.

HUGS AJ-

I came a-hopping, but found this beauty. Love the box! Hey, Bek. You need to visit me here in WI. We made it ALL the way up to 51 degrees today and there are frost warnings for tonight. On the plus side, the Northern Lights are supposed to be spectacular tonight after midnight. Can't wait!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room sugge…
