Last Box From the Nesting Swap

Look at the gem I got in the mail yesterday from Susan! She even made the mailing box pretty! Look at her beautiful handwriting!

Then, the made-over matchbox inside... click and read the band around it, she is so creative!

The inside.......

She even decorated the inside of the box! Harper and I kept saying, "Oh, wow!" She made those cute little gift tags AND the little "field notes" book!

The ribbons are wrapped around the letter "P"! LOVE it!

To Remember...

Well, it's almost been a year since my dad passed away. Yucky to think about. SO, I have decided to focus on LIFE instead this month.

Greg bought some small terra cotta pots, and Cannon and I got to work painting them. Then decorating. I used some rub ons, paper cut outs, and even cut a design out of a pretty napkin. LOVE that Mod Podge! Also, crafts are very theraputic.
Dad's favorite flower was a Zinnia. For those of you who knew him, you're probably thinking, "That son-of-a-bitch liked flowers?" YEP. LOVED Zinnias. And he pronounced them "zeee-nyas" with his good old Utah accent.

Needless to say, that's the seed that got planted in each pot. I gave one to all the girls in my family. To remember. That life goes on, even when someone we love isn't here with us. That you can plant seeds, and sometimes sorrow can turn into hope. And you can look at a beautiful flower, and remember your daddy.

We miss you, you crazy old bastard!

Every one has gotten their packages, so here's a peek at what I sent.

This was a wonderful project. So much fun making stuff and finding just the right thing to decorate and fill each box!
