i have this one picture of this keepsake box. i don't even have measurements for this. let me give you a little history about this box, anyways. i was shopping with my little bug (ky) and we spotted this little lonely keepsake box that i so wanted to save. it has a mirror inside that was coming off. it has a few scratches on it. it was perfect. this box needed some luv. kyree loved it, too. we decided to bring it home and make it all better. i glued the mirror back on. i cleaned it up, painted the pretty little girl and put a pretty flower in her hair. kyree filled the box with love, invisible love. now this pretty box needs a good home. it would be so perfect to fill with hairbows, pencils or fun treasures. to adopt this box, leave a comment and let me know what simple moment or thing makes you smile and feel good. anything. the sun. a baby's smile. the giveaway starts today- march 31, 2009, and is a week long. one of the boys will pick a winner out of a hat. you have until April 9, 2009 @ 5pm (east coast!) to enter. good luck!

it was such a pretty day today and I decided to hit the thrift store. I love shopping there and finding unique things, but I have always felt funny about buying shoes. when I spotted these, it was love at first sight! they looked brand new...had to have them. one problem. i'm a size 8 1/2. these? 7. i knew the perfect feet for these! lucky for my lovely friend, jeri, she's a size 7, huh? i ended up buying these for her, couldn't let these just sit there! cute pair of dark jeans, maybe green top and she's ready to go! total? $2.99. score!

This is it. My next step. Creating my own blog for my own creations and I am so excited. As some of you may know, I have another blog, butterflykisses2u.com, that I share stories about everyday life and the adventures of being a mommy. Originally, I was going to have this blog at wordpress, but felt MUCH more comfortable with blogspot. What can I say? I am a creature-of-comfort! Welcome everyone and I want to tell you a little bit about my passions.
I love to create. I've been this way since I can remember. I particularly like to create jewelry, paint on canvases and paint keepsake boxes. This is my escape from the busy life of a 32 year old mother of three. I find joy and peace in taking something and making it beautiful. To see something in someone's house or on themselves and say "I made that". Cool. I love to see people's reactions when I give them something that they absolutely appreciate. My love to you. Everything I create is made with love and has been inspired by something in my life. I believe that everyone and everything has a story. That is what makes you and me unique. I want this to be a place that I share ideas and share a little bit of what makes "me". Welcome, friends. I hope you can stay a while and have coffee.
