The Mail Person will be getting packages tomorow because.Creative Minds at work, again!

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

Well aren't you so very clever?! I love what you did with your pill container, you created something incredible out of something that would normally be thrown out! I love re-purposing and your creation is fabulous!

Julia said...

That's a cool idea, Sharon! So your high blood pressure is at least good for something ;-). I love the images you chose and laces are one of my favorite embellishments which I use a lot, too! :-)

I love the way you covered the pill box. Makes me want to go into the bathroom and see if I need to redecorate my pill boxes etc.

I am starting a NEW Mr. Linky party. It will begin on Aug 10th so everyone will have a week and a half to think about their first post. I have a poll up for votes on which button should be the new button. The "party" is called The Knock Off Knock Out-where THRIFTY meets creative sensation. Go over and learn more about the new weekly event and I would appreciate if you would cast your vote and HELP pick the new button design and its the last week for the July GIVE-A-Way, if you would like to be a part of that event..
