Hi Stampers, welcome to the Creative Spa!
The other day my daughter wanted some strawberry Tic Tacs. I said sure on one condition. I wanted to decorate it first. It’s been a long time since I covered a mint container. Since she chose strawberry mints, I just had to use Strawberry Slush paper and a little bit of retired ribbon.
My daughter was so cute. Once she finished all the mints, she gave the container back since I put so much work into decorating it. Got to love her to pieces!
Today I am packing my car to go to a local Stampin’ Up! demonstrators meeting. Part of the week I have spent part of this week turning card fronts into full cards so they can be donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Portland. I had two helpers. They are 6 and 7 year olds. The seven year old helped score and fold card bases. She also like to use the glue (snail adhesive). The six year old wasn’t as helpful. In fact, she was quite irritated that the box was not for her to play with.
Eventually, she let me have the box again and we filled the box with all sorts of cards, tags and bookmarks.
Don’t you just love the dirty look I am getting while taking this photo. It says “You really think this box belongs to you?”
Next week I should have some card samples for you to see. I made 26 cards to swap at the meeting. We will also be making a few projects while we are there.
