Birthday Projects

It's me again - I know ... twice in the same week?!!  LOL.  I wanted to share a couple of projects that I completed, in celebration of DM's birthday this year.

Last year, my mom had mentioned that she needed a way to store or keep the different hand-made cards/gifts I've given her over the years.  That statement stuck with me for a while.  My first instinct was to get her some type of plastic storage/organizer.  But, as I was preparing for Cassie's Craft-cation in October, the idea hit me... alter a box!!  Well, that idea excited AND scared me, at the same time.  LOL.  This project was going to take me completely out of my comfort zone of paper, and force me into the world of wood!  Needless to say, I am pleased with how my first altered box project turned out.  I do need to learn how to tape off some of the fixtures to avoid getting paint on EVERYTHING!  Lesson learned...

Below is a small collage of the cards that I made for DM - one from the grands, and one from me.  What you don't see in this picture, is the funny...slightly smutty card that I made for her, that I placed inside the box!
