Everythings Rosie

Happy Hellos Blog Family:

Glad to know you made it over Hump Day!

You ever have one of those "Good-Problems"? When you think about it, those are some of the best kind of problems to have. Over the past couple of weeks, I have be building my inventory. There was a time when I felt as though I had an ample amount of greeting cards. Then one day I looked down into my container and it appeared as though I could have counted my inventory on one hand. Okay maybe I am stretching things a bit, but the number of cards I had on hand was very low. Perhaps that was a result of my long winter's nap. With Mother's Day, graduations, and Father's Day just around the corner--and lets not mention birthdays and weddings, I began making cards to build up my inventory. Well, this past weekend I participated in the Art Asylum in Savage Mills, Maryland on Saturday and the Baltimore's Farmer's Market on Sunday. Well, to my suprise I sold more cards than I had anticipated. That's were the "good thing" (as Martha Stewart says) comes in to play. Of course that depleted my statch. However, the real problem came into play on my way home from the Art Ayslum. After I packed the car and started the ignition, I realise I had not taken any photos of the newer cards I had sold earlier that day. So, I have once again started working on another batch of cards for whatever occassion you can think of.

Since, I do not have a new card to share with you today, I am sharing with you another one of my keepsake boxes with you. I just absolutely love my boxes. I think they are perfect gift to receive for any occassion. With Mother's Day on our heals, it was no suprise this one did not stick around too long. I named this keepsake box 'Everythings Rosie.' Take a look....

As the box began to come together in my mind, it became less of a tea
box and more of a keepsake box. I invisioned the recipient retaining
 personal stationary & postage, special letters or greeting cards in
 this box. I'm not sure how the box will be use, I only it  finds a good home.

The collection of DP is by Authentique. The DP wasn't one that jumped
 out at me, but it didn't take long before I knew what it was I wanted to create with it.

Simplicity was a factor. For some reason, I didn't want to embellish too much
and I don't think I did. However, I could not resist a lil' bling.

As people perused this particular box, I noticed the wow factor from patrons once
 the the lid had been lifted. One lady said, 'I wouldn't put any thing inside of this box.
It would be just for show.'

Finish Project
