Happy 2012 Everyone!!!

Happy New Year Everyone & Happy Hellos!!!

I've missed all of you much. It's been a couple of weeks since my last post. I was a little disappointed I wasn't able to carryout The Peddler's Gallery Parade of Paper Creations until the 31st of December. However, so many things were taking place as the month progressed. My last post was the day before my son's 13th birthday. It's hard to believe thirteen years have gone by. It's almost harder to believe I have a teenage son. Every time I think about it, I smile. This September he'll enter high school, but I'll tailor that conversation for another posting. I wanted to start this year off by sharing the New Year's card I sent to everyone. That's right, my New Year's card. My Christmas cards turned into my New Year's cards when I found myself running out of holiday time. I know there are a few folks that follow my blog who haven't received their card. So, I'll wait until the first of next week to share it with you.

In the meantime, I decided to share and altered box I made for no one in particular, but I'm hopeful it will find a good home soon. Actually, I've made a few that I plan to share with you over the next few weeks. Take a look and share your thoughts with me.

I love this paper by My Minds Eye.

I decided to expose the original cigar tape. For some reason I like
the idea of others knowing the origins of this box.

I also love how Tim Holtz's foundations can dresss up a project.

I attached the ribbon that came with this box to prevent the lid
 of the box from falling completely back when opened.

Of course, this is a photo of what the box looks like from underneath.

What do you think? Were you slightly inspired to create an altered
box for yourself or a friend? Well, thanks for stopping by
The Peddler's Gallery and be sure to come back real soon.
