Well, we are all into the start of summer and it has been wonderful. I hope it has been good for all of you too. The weather has cooperated for the most part and it feels so good to be outside. We have had several evenings when we sat outside and enjoy a fire and believe it or not - even the mosquitoes have cooperated around here !! LOL !! They have been biting my DH more often than me and that is highly unusual.

I did have a class last week and I just have to share with you the wonderful project that we worked on. We did the card keeper boxes. This is the first time that these two ladies have done anything like this and I'm so im
pressed with the outcome that I just have to share.

Debbie's box is done in this great blue and green paisley with some green and yellow accents. The picture just dose not do it justice. It is so adorable. The ribbons are mostly SU and of course we added some Prima flowers and a few flower bling accent
s (every girl needs a bit of bling). The inside holds 12 divider tabs, on for each month.

Nancy's box was done in chocolate and light turquoise. The ribbon she used was SU ribbon and Mayarts. The primas and jewels were added to this box too and just was the perfect finishing touch. She also put dividers on the inside and everything coordinates.

I hope that these ladies get many years of use out of these adorable tins. I'm also so happy that they enjoyed making them. Now we will have a place to put all the cards we make at our other classes. I feel like a proud Mom when your children do so well that I just had to share !! :)

Because these ladies are friends, I just brought a ton of stuff over and let them pick what they wanted. If I should do a class that is larger, I would pick out the papers and the coordinating embellishments and sell it as a package deal. It would make it much easier for both the student and me !! I have also discovered that when you give people too many choices they can't make a decision. That can take a lot of time. Your 3 hour class has just been doubled in time !! LOL !!

Well, I'm off to do some shopping - hope you all enjoy your weekend.
