Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Good afternoon, all!  I hope you're all doing well.  I'm doing great -- tickled pink (yeah, right!!!  LOL!) to be alive!!!

Wow!  I've just spent over an hour emailing the cut.files for the hat box.  It did get a bit confusing as there were so many requests, so if I missed anyone, please let me know.  I would never miss you intentionally.  Ughhh!!!  Doesn't it always seem like I go on and on before I share with you...?  I know, I know...

Okay, the story with this "thing" is that my hubby (who's doing much better) has a birthday the end of February and I wanted to do something that wasn't just the "typical" handmade birthday card.  I call it a "thing" because it's a gift, a gift box, and a card -- at least the way I've figured it -- and I just don't know any one name to give it.  Anyway, you get to peek and comment before the hubby gets it (I hope he doesn't decide now of all times to visit).  Let me know what you think of this "thing" -- heee-heee.

The box on top has a hidden trap door in the back and, yes, there's a little gift tucked inside -- shhhhhh!.  The bottom box is the card and the whole "thing" is the gift.  Make sense?  I made the bottom box from transparencies and tried to make it appear the words, the balloons, and the present inside are just suspended from air.  I wanted different and I guess this is it.  I sure hope he likes it!

I'll be seeing you!

Very creative - great job!

Thanks for popping by my blog - work has been crazy this week so I haven't had a chance to post the projects I worked on Sunday. Should have some info up in the next day or so though. :)

Have a good evening!

Audrey I think your "thing" is quite interesting and appealing. You have an amazing talent for coming up with different "things".
