I wanted to show you my "newest" creations. I have been working on a gift swap for "I thought about you" and my partner is Louise at http://whisperingpoppies.blogspot.com/! One of these lovelies is going to be included in her box. I take blood pressure meds and the new container is this strange pull out box. Well, my mind works really strange around 3:00AM and I thought this could be a fun "something" so I made it into a scripture box. I haven't seen anything like this out in blogland. I guess, I am the first to come up with it. If not, please let me know. I love recycling used objects. Once I got started I covered both side with pretty designs then added the pull out card with scriptures on both sides.
I HAVE to take this medicine and I wanted to make something unusual out of a useless carton. It is so much more interesting that the ordinary round rust colored boring containers they usually put pills in. There is a "button" on the top that you have to push hard on to get the card from inside. (I guess it keeps children from getting in your meds) But the lock button makes the final card quite a mystery to the receiver. I added a ribbon to the pull out to help with the process but you still have to push the button.
I have been wrapping packages all weekend. One goes to LuLu Kellogg http://coastalsistersnews.blogspot.com/that bought my Fiori necklace and I just had to enclose some goodies with her purchase. What a charming lady! Have you checked out her posts? She is sooo funny.
I am sending a thank you to Cathe http://justsomethingimade.blogspot.com/. She always has such lovely gifts for all of us and I thought a small gift was due to her for her generosity. It isn't much but the thought that counts, right? As time goes on I am going to have a surprise for others who have been so kind to me. So this love gift is just the beginning....
Well, the girls got home this evening so we will be choosing a name for my baby doll and I will get the winners gift out to them right away. I think I will close the name suggestions on Wed. as it is my birthday and I would like to get this giveaway done. So I am cutting is shorter than I originally planned. I have updated the list of names that have been suggested. (be sure to check back a couple of posts to see the list.) They are ALL so lovely!!! If your suggestion is not on the list PLEASE let me know!!!!! If you have not already sent in your suggestions, do so right away, up to 12:00 on July 29th!!! Time is short. I hope I hear from you soon...Sharon
