A SPECIAL DELIVERY!!!

Hello, again, everyone!  I'm feeling better, but this flu is still kicking me around, and  I've passed it on to my DH!!!  Does it ever end?!!!  Of course, he's really going to milk it -- LOL!!!

First, thank you all for your kind responses to my losing several followers.  I realize it happens but it's so hard to not  take it personal!  I did want them to know, however, I did appreciate the time they did share with me.

Now, on to happier things!!!  When I was growing up, it was common for little boys (including my brother and my hubby) to either deliver newspapers and/or deliver groceries in their little red wagons to make "candy"  or "extra" money!  Whenever I'd go grocery shopping with my mom, there was always a little boy who'd pull the groceries home for no more than just a about a quarter to 50 cents!!!  Now, I haven't seen little boys pulling groceries in wagons since I was a teenager!  My-my, times have certainly changed!!!  LOL!

The thought inspired this valentine gift for my son and my hubby!  They aren't so into the "fluffy" cutesy stuff like us girls for Valentine's Day; they're so macho -- LOL!  Being so, I think this will appeal more to men than little heart boxes filled with candy:



The mail package/box inside the wagon contains  little chocolate candies.  Of couse, my hubby had to critique it, said the wheels were too large, so I'll make adjustments on the next one, but don't you think the guys will just like this one!!!  And isn't it just too fun and the cutest!!!

This is such an easy project, 2 boxes!!!  Try it, and let me see!!!

Thanks for stopping by to have a look!!!

I'll be seeing you!

oh that brings back so many memories. Me and my brother use to deliver papers in our red wagon. And then when it was empty we would both sit in it and race down the hill. So much fun. And I do believe the guys will love this one. :)

Love lil' red! This is such a neat idea and I too love the story that accompanies it!

ScrapCrazyyyy! said...

That is so cute, what a great idea. I think even little boys would like to have a wagon like this instead of a heart shaped bo of chocolates.

You did great!!! Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad you are feeling better and I hope your hubby gets well soon. I know how our boys are when they are not feeling well;-)
