Little Boxes, Made of Ticky Tacky

I never rally watched the show Weeds, although I have seen a couple of episodes.  I never got into it like my former boss did.  She loved that show.  Something about selling weed in the suburbs didn’t resonate with me.  But, and there always is a but, I did like the theme song.  Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds.  It is just a little song about the suburbs and the houses “they all look just the same.”  Maybe that is not great for houses, but it is great for treat boxes.

Last year a put up my pretty dress boxes. Last night I got a request to make some boxes in different colors.  So I did.  So just like the little boxes, there is a red one, a blue one and a silver one, the all look just the same.

Not really the best picture, but it gives you a good idea of what the boxes look like in different colors.  Kind of cute, right?

Hope you have a wonderful week!

The Wedding is Today…

If you have read my last couple of posts, you will see a trend of me helping my friend with a few items for her daughter’s wedding. The wedding is today! On Friday I finished up the last few items. She asked me to put together some dessert menus. So I did!

All the desserts sound so tasty!
All the desserts sound so tasty!

The burnt sugar and blood orange cream puff would be to die for. I really hope there are left overs.

Please send positive thought to my friend’s daughter for a long and happy life with her new husband!

Being sick sucks!

I went on vacation to Arizona for spring break and came back sick as a dog. My throat is still sore and I have a lingering cough.  Usually I can deny being sick, but it didn’t work this time.  Of course work did not stop, and I have been leaving the house at 7 AM and coming home at 7 PM, so I haven’t gotten the rest that I need.  Good thing I love my job!

I was finally able to do something crafty this week. My friend’s daughter is getting married in May and her bridal shower is in a week and a half.  For the shower my friend asked me to make favors, little wedding dress boxes.  I gave her three options to choose from:

Dress Box with Satin Ribbon
Dress Box with Satin Ribbon
Dress Box with Pink Bling
Dress Box with Pink Bling
Dress Box with Flowers
Dress Box with Flowers

Which box do you like the best?

I look forward ward to getting back to my year of craftiness; more projects and more blog posts!
