I'm back! At least for today. As you know, my life has been pretty crazy the last few months- and not necessarily in a good way. Things are starting to get back to normal - they aren't there quite YET but they are a lot better. In fact, I finally stamped something and it felt good.
I worked on this project a little at a time over the past week. Last weekend I was getting ready to throw this box away when I decided I needed to use it for something. It's a good, sturdy box and the perfect size for storing cards. The next step of course,was to make it pretty! :)
I would love to tell you I had a pattern and measurements for the box, but it was really more of a measure as you go kind of project. The paper I used is from the Quite Contrary Collection from My Mind's Eye and all the stamped images are from Unity's August KOM- All You Need. I might have gone a little overboard decorating it, but I still like how it turned out- see for yourself:

This is the front view (yes, I put googly eyes on the owl) :
Here is the side view with the cute owl paper (love it):
I've already FILLED it up with cards so I guess I will have to make another one! (I need to buy more chips first, though!)
It is tall and wide enough to hold my large square cards without bending them. I think this will make a fun addition to my extremely-neglected stamping area.
Thanks for visiting my blog today! I hope I will start posting more often so stay tuned. In the mean time, Happy Halloween. I am going to go enjoy this glorious day- the weather is perfect today! Even my Mums are enjoying the sunshine. (I have managed to keep a plant alive.....can you believe it?)
