Matchbox Hostess Gift

My new stamp club started this month.  This time I am doing things a little differently.  Instead of meeting every month for 5 months, we meet every other month.  This gives everyone a little more time to play with all their new stuff and it also gives us a chance to order from all the mini catalogs.  Normally club starts in January and runs through May.  I'm hoping everyone will like this schedule better.

So here is the hostess gift for this month.  I did use retired paper on this.  I bought the paper from the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack.  Don't forget to check that out occasionally.  We never know when they are adding new products and some items go really fast.

This was made using the matchbox die, a die I haven't used much, although I don't know why, it makes very cute boxes.  I've just stacked three matchboxes on top of each other and wrapped Designer Series Paper around them.  When you open the top drawer, butterflies come flying out.  All the drawers are filled with miniature candy bars.

Pretty cute idea isn't it?  It's not my idea and I have no idea who to credit for this, sorry.

Thanks for looking,

Well they are gone...

My daughter and her family moved this weekend. We moved them to Ohio. This is one of the reasons I haven't posted lately. She's been busy packing, and I've been trying to spend time with the boys.

Ryan, who is four, and loves to stay with Granny (that's me) spent most of last week here. And Jessi (my daughter) and Myer (who is 19 months) came every evening to eat supper since her kitchen was packed up. And then they all stayed the last few nights here.

Everyone keeps saying Ohio isn't that far (it's 5 hours), but it seems very far when you are used to your family being less the 5 minutes away (and that's walking, not driving). Just keep us all in prayer as this is quite an adjustment for us.

Tomorrow will be a busy day filled with cleaning, then I hope to get into some kind of routine soon. I seem to do better when I have a routine.

Thanks for stopping by and I will have some things to share soon.
