Valentine's Mailbox


Hello everyone! I've been missing for about a week. I had so many things going on first was those headaches turns out it's nothing to worry about per the doctor. I was in one of those non craft moods too all week. Plus I had spent most of my week shopping. I wanted to send my nieces and nephews on my side of the family some clothing from some German department stores. I've found that their clothing is really good quality and super super cute stuff especially for little girls. This week and next I'll be shopping for all the nieces and nephews on my husband's side. There are like double of them on his side than on mine. His mom's birthday is coming up as well so gotta find her a gift too. She's such a simple woman so it's hard to decide what to get her without going too over the top. Anyway we also this weekend had a church retreat where my son celebrated for the first time the sacrament of Reconciliation. He's attending CCD to complete his First Communion in April. My mom and mother in law are finally happy he's going to make this sacrament as well. It's something well overdue. I've just been a rut and not feeling creative or like making anything at all. Oh on top of that my computer has crashed but I'm getting a new one as soon as our income tax money comes in. I've had the hand me down laptop for a long time. Each of us have our own laptop so it's my turn for the new one! So sorry for the pictures they won't have my watermark on them until I get the new laptop. I've lost all of my contacts as well and all of my blog pictures I had taken. Enough complaining now on to my morning and how this cute little mailbox came about. I went to breakfast this morning with a friend and came back to finish Desperate Housewives season 4 to realize I watched the last one last night! I got up and stood in my craft room for about 5 minutes before deciding what to work on. I finished this cute little mailbox from Target. It was my LAST ONE! (insert crying face here) I've decorated it and my son will give it to his teacher for Valentine's this year. I hate to let it go but it's too cute not to pass onto someone. I am in love with this designer paper from Stampin' Up! I think it's some of the cutest paper ever too bad it's retired. I'm not exactly sure yet what I will fill it with for her. Maybe we'll make a bunch of little heart cookies and fill the mailbox.

I love those little mailboxes. Even I have one that has been decorated. Karen sent to the US and did a workshop on them with us. Great fun.
