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!

Hi, again, everyone!  I hope you all participate and take a chance in winning my RAK!!!  Looking forward to reading all your comments!

Eventhough it's so hot and humid, and making me feel drained enough not to want to craft, my desire to get back to crafting is greater than the humidity -- LOL!!!  So, I  do have a little something I've made to share with you today.  It's a friendship box and matching card set:

The box is 5" x 5" and I cut it on my E using 12"x 24" cardstock, so it's large and deep enough to hold the votive candle, my handmade jar of cream soap and tube of solid body lotion shown on the picture.

While my brother was here, he looked up a friend whose sister happened to be one of my best friends I grew up with in our neighborhood.  As we all grew older and moved on, we lost contact but we never forgot each other.  Anyway, my brother put her in contact with me and she's coming to visit tomorrow.  I put this gift together especially for her -- just have to add the labels to my toiletries.  I'm so glad I had some toiletries left because I haven't made any since, I think, the beginning of the year.  It's pretty basic box and card, so I really hope she really likes it!

As soon as I update my 4Shared files, I'll provide you the cut.file to have if you'd like.  Got lots to do, so I'm off now!

I'll be seeing you!
