I can't wait for Thanksgiving. I've been thinking about everything I'm thankful for lately and how lucky I truly am! Isn't it true that the things you struggle the most with and work the hardest for, you are truly the most appreciative for?
The other night, as I was laying down with my 3 year old to get her to go to sleep, I was rubbing her back as always...my arm got tired after some time and I stopped. A second later, I heard, "good job, mommy, good job" in a little whisper. So cute! My heart just swelled and it's moments like that that are so precious to me. Yesterday she told me I was a special momma. ha! I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with my girls and take care of them myself. And thankful for my husband for supporting that too.
Anyway, onto a project that I made recently for the Melissa Frances blog. It's a 10" pillow box that I found at AC Moore in the gift wrapping section. I covered it with Ramona and Hazel paper, added a sticker and rub on saying and some Wright's lace. The swirl is a wooden applique that I found also at the craft store, which I lightly painted with copper paint. The ends are not covered, so they still open and close to add goodies inside.
Melissa Frances is coming out with a new line for CHA this year unlike the lines they've done before! I can't wait to see it myself!
I'm currently working on another mini album for Right At Home Scrapbooking...will post a link when it's ready for purchase. Here is a pic of the cover.
