Hi I'm Debbie and so excited to be joining this Sorority!  I've only been blogging for a couple of months and my sister, Ann at Tin and Sparkle, who is a seasoned blogger, invited me to join you. She says it will be a great way to meet lots of other girls.  I have been so amazed by all the wonderful comments everyone leaves.  It  has touched my heart so much that I want to keep them forever, and I'm not a big collector of sentiment.


So for my project using the adorable girls, I covered a unique candy box that had been setting in my craft room just waiting to be used!  My plan is to  print all the wonderful words of encouragement, cut them apart and choose one to read on days that I feel down or just want to be reminded of all the great people out there.  I then plan on saying a little prayer for that person. This candy box was soooo cool.  The top brown flaps have magnets that keep the box closed. 


 Hope what I have made inspires others to "think outside the box" Debbie

I'm not in the sorority, but I just have to say that is a neat project! Love what you did with this, and that's neat, too, that you're Ann's sister. :-)

Not only have I LOVED seeing your wedding pictures and those of your beautiful family but I am in awe of your lovely box. Simply beautiful my talented friend.

Love to you SEEZSTA!

Rebecca PS: Reading your story of how you met your beloved in church warmed my heart. I met my hubbs of almost 32 years at a Christian College and he was my best friend. Who knew... Oh yeah...God did! xo

Hi, Debbie- so glad to meet you! Love your box but I bet my "box" was easier. Hee-hee! Yeah, it's a miracle that I could find the tape! ♥

Hi Terri,

I really love your vintage altered box I especially love what your going to use it for, everyone always feels better reading words of encouragement....
And to have a whole box of lovely comments from sisters all across the globe I think that's just priceless......

Great transformation of the candy box into a Sorority treasure box. I like what you have planned for it as well.

Hi Debbie, I am happy to meet you! My weekend has been really busy and I am running behind... well with almost everything:) Thank you for visiting me and leaving your sweet comment. I LOVE your creation. How beautiful and I am thinking that nobody else used a box, quite creative my friend! Have a most blessed Sunday! Big hugs from Ganky!

Charlene said...

Love what you did with the box! I'm a "box" person, I hate to get rid of a good box, now I'm inspired to make something pretty out of the next good box I find!

It's so nice to meet you, Debbie! Your rush project is definitely one of my favourites. Your box is beautiful, and how clever to think of filling it with lovely comments!

I've only been blogging for six months myself and am still learning the ropes. If you get a chance, perhaps you might pop over to my page. It's good to have you as a sister...
