Happy Day & Out of Town Guests

Today is my Friday, I'm taking tomorrow off. Or at least I am telling myself that. Unless I hide the blackberry..hmmmmm....always an option!

Anyway, I plan on being a bit AWOL from Blogger. Sis in Law is coming with three kids and it will be fun chaos. I likely will still be stalking blogs in the evening though. That is my favorite pasttime!
Wanted to share a quick photo of a little box I made to store her birthday gift. We normally don't exchange gifts, but her daughter had a birthday a few weeks ago and I didn't send one. This box will contain a gift cert for a Mother/Daughter mani-pedi! Sounds like fun to me! I will have to schedule one with my best girlie Lexi.

It went together in five minutes. Took longer to get out the hot glue gun. A doily with some modge podge, two hand crafted roses from a store in Potsdam, Vanilla Stampin' Up Seam binding, some Olive Vine glimmermist...and a recycled container that previously held cream. Super quick! Hope she likes it! I didn't add much else so she can repurpose this either for another gift or a little container to hold things!

Chat with you in a couple of days!
