Smiley from I can’t believe that I’m up and moving and have already finished my project for tonight’s class.  I’ve also just started my second pot of coffee Smiley from hmmmmm hmmmmm good!

Hopefully my class hasn’t been canceled tonight due to the weather but if it is, I’m teaching the same one next Monday at 10:00 am.  There are still seats available and if you are interested please call Lavender Sentiments.  They get you all set up!

I walked into Lavender Sentiments the other day and Robyn was inking up coffee filters for a class, and I got a wicked idea of using coffee filters with my project.  I’m quite happy with the results.


Now look at the flowers on the top . . . they are coffee filters made with the Wrinkle Free Distress  Technique.  I LOVE them!


I’ve used these boxes for many things . . . . there’s two on my desk, one holds Post-It Notes and the other holds binder clips.  I’ve even put gift cards in them to present my gift in.

Typically I’ve used Spellbinders™ Labels on the top, but with this one I decided to use my new stamps from JustRite and Spellbinders™ Circles.  I tied a little ribbon on the top of the circle for added embellishment.
