Sweet Guitar

I thought this would make a darling Valentines gift for my hubby!  No, he nor do I play the guitar, but it was such a sweet cut from SVGCuts,  that I couldn't resist making it.  It is a guitar box, and it's just big enough for a small cute gift inside.

I went with a Valentines theme for this one, but oh the possibilities of making this a real country-ish or even a little Rock-n-roll style.  

I can't wait to make more!!

"Pantsy" gift box

I think this is such a darling alternative to a gift box.  This pattern is for "Santa Pants" found at SVGCuts.  It goes to show that anything with different paper can completley change the look of the original.

I used vibrant colors… it looks cheery!   I plan to fill it with make-up, hair accessories, "girly things" for a birthday gift!  Is this something you would like to get a gift in?  I would… my birthday is coming up soon, I may keep it for myself!!
Thanks for looking...

Little Box of Sunshine!!

I am so very lucky to live in the Valley of the Sun, while so many are stuck shoveling snow and ice!  My mom lives where its cold and I thought she could use a little sunshine!!

I never knew how hard it was to find YELLOW items when you are looking for them!  All year long I see such clever and vibrant yellow items hat are non-existent this time of year!  (Note to self:  buy these things when you see them for next "Sunshine box!")

I added liquid Bath and Body soap, lotion, shower gel, tea, stickers, candy, knitted hat, and a few other things… put in a box, and added a BIG SMILEY face I found at Fleurette Bloom   Turned out cute!  I hope it puts a SMILE on my moms face as well as brings her a little sunshine!!

Love you mom!! ( You are the only one reading this blog!)  Look for this in your mailbox next week!

Strong Arms

I just love making these cute boxes… it is so very simple to put together that I really could make a million of these… not in one sitting of course!!

I made these as gifts of encouragement to clients/friends.  Its an easy project yet, looks like you spent some serious time putting them together!

I just loved this color of pink… so girly!!  I cut out dumbbells for tags and added a cute "fitness stamp" on them!!  Perfect!!

The cut is from SVGcutting files, and the cute stamps are from Jaded Blossom!  Check out both sites…

Personal Trainer notes

A Clipboard is essential for a Personal Trainer… helps keep your notes and workouts organized!  I thought this would be a great magnet to serve as a reminder that working out really does pay off!!

The "skinny" girl is a darling file I found at SVGcutting files!  I thought she was perfect with the tape measure around her… I did my measurements this morning… Yikes!!  :)  I also used the stamp set from Jaded Blossom which were a perfect match!!

I made one for me, of course, and one for a Client of mine… a great way to keep in check as we move through 2014!

Thanks for looking… I would love it if you left a comment. telling me what ideas or things keep you motivated...
