Baby gift using the Mailbox Muse kit

Hi everyone!  I recently went to a customer garage sale at my local scrapbook store and got a box stencil for a quarter!  How cool is that?  And how perfect to go with my latest Mailbox Muse kit, Baby Baby Baby.  I cut out the box from dark pink cardstock and glued the collage images at random.  When the box was glued together I added sheer ribbon bow with ribbon from Altered Pages and some lovely daisies cut from a scrap of ribbon in my bin.  I also made a matching card to go with.



Do you use baby wipes for clean up when you work?  I do.  And I like to buy the big bulk package because it's more cost effective!  But I don't need the ugly label on the box.  So I took these flower stickers that I found at a dollar store and decorated the container.  Now it blends in to my color scheme and all I need to do is buy the refills.

I like to recycle cans into storage for pencils, pens, markers, rubber bands, etc.  They come in every size so you can find the exact size you need.  Everything in my studio is decorated in pink, green or both.  When I find sales on scrapbook paper I try to get patterns in my colors so that I can decorate the everyday things on my table.  The box of name labels I bought was blue so I wrapped that up, too!  The markers and paint pens that need to be stored horizontal are in pink plastic pencil boxes in another area on my desk.
Color, color, color!  I want every inch of my workspace to be functional but also fun and colorful.  This wire shelf holds a lot of my supplies (see my last post on Feb 9th about building upward) and also protects my DVD player from the avalanche of paper that is usually stacked up on the table


Thanks for stopping by!  We hope you'll come back often.  Drop us a line and say hello.  If you see a project you like, be sure to let us know!
Until next time ... Happy Crafting!
