for you... yea you.

Have I told you how much a I enjoy you, my blog friends? Well I do! I have so much fun reading all of your inspiration and hopefully I give you some as well.

As a thank you I thought I'd make something for one of you!And here is a look inside:
And guess what I made it out of... an old check box. I just painted it white and went to town. I did make a little divider inside as well. It's basically just some chipboard and some ribbon spools inside, but who knows what else might go in the package!

So, I'd love to send it you, just leave a comment that's it!

I've also had some sweet friends give me a blog awards lately! Thanks you Kelley and Winter. I enjoy both of your blogs so much, not to mention your friendship! If you haven't checked out their blogs they are fantastic.

Here are a few other blog friends that are just fantastic:

Amy- Tsurta Designs
Kelly Marie- Lawn Fawn Cards
Christina - Happy Stamping
Dana - Paper Daydream
Jane - Plain Jane
Randee - Randee's Rendezvous
Brit - Art is my Sunshine
Tina - Traveling Mama (I think I may want to be her... seriously)
Ann - Creative Antics

I feel like I could go on and on. Maybe I will on my next post! There are just so many extremely talented bloggers out there! Go check them out!

You are such a doll, and a creative one at that. I love what you did with the old check box. Thanks for the sweet shoutout, I'm so grateful for you too. Blogging has turned out to be such a huge blessing to me. I have some awards I'm deliquent in passing along. I need to make time to do that.

Last night we had our flooring appointment, so we are one step closer... (we aren't as ambitious as you and Chase, we're having someone do it for us).

Courtney you are so creative! I would have never thought to reuse a checkbox like that! I will have to start trying to keep an eye out for things to reuse and repurpose!

Courtney, what a great way to repurpose! I've got several empty check boxes sitting in a closet (it takes me forever to throw things away....and now you just gave me an excuse to hold on to it a bit longer!! :>). Love the sweet tree and its layered leaves...too cute.........and practical??!! You're rock'n the clever & crafty!! :>:> And speaking of awards, I've left one on my blog for you! :>
