Changing things up a little.
Silver ink on black paper.
I like it. The stamping part is a little messy but not as bad a glue. Glue is my enemy. My previous cards were white with pink. I liked them but I think I like this better. I might not have chosen this time to start a change but I can't get the pink cards anymore.
This is tray one of four or five.
Earrings make me happy. They are perfect just about all the time.

This is where it starts to change. Add one more fold to this step.Unfold your second fold and take the flat side and fold it up to the line you just made.
You now have a lot more lines on your square when it is unfolded.
Your lines are going to be the same.
Fold that second flap down so your side walls are 1/2 as tall.
I am loving the mixture of a Short top and a tall bottom box.

Lightly draw lines from corner to corner. (Make a big x)
Next with the square tip at the center of the x fold the flat edge to the flat line from the x. Do this on all four sides.

I have been working on my holiday packaging for my stitch makers and jewelry. I have some fun new box modifications to share. I allways make tiny boxes and these are much larger. Perfect for shows this season.
There is something about folding paper. I know I complain sometimes but i really like folding the boxes and seeing how different each one comes out.
Kitten and I are out but hope to bring you are new boxes later this week. After we go to the book store.

I am having fun with book inspired stitch markers.
I love reading and never have enough time for it. Recently I have read some books and had to keep them alive a little longer. I always hate the ending its like loosing a friend.
If you have read Noel Streatfeild's novel Ballet Shoes . . . I heart you.
I am not sure who I am going to do next. I am still looking for the perfect pink pearls for Margaret from Sense and Sensibility.
With Halloween nearing it makes me want to do something spooky..... Maybe next year I will remember.
What have you read recently? Or what have you read many times over?
There are a few books I can reread over and over again.

Many many shoes. I could not find a bigger picture of all my shoes but here are my mini pics of them.
It was funny pulling out my photo book which is full of these. I must have spent my whole budget on film.
Some of them are so funny as I can remember the min and the laughter. Then on a couple I can't even remember who the picture is of.
So yeah a lot of shoes.

I got tagged by my friend Leah to tell seven wierd things about me. I thought this might be kind of fun.
1. I wore Converse sneakers all four years of hs. . . and College. The big joke was that I got up so early they were not always the same color. Moving out on my own I lugged around a laundry basket full of Converse for four years.
2. Given the time and a good book I can sit in a bathtub or a swimming pool and read a whole book. Front to back.
3. I have done a back handspring wearing a football uniform. I did it great in practice and landed on my helmeted head on stage.
4. I have not eaten an eggplant as an adult. My mother has always told me I was allergic and have steered clear of them my whole life.
5. I collect copies of Little Women.
6. Someday I want to live in a barn. A renovated barn...not just a barn.
7. If a group of people are wearing the same colors....I will say so out loud.
Ok I an so normal it is boring.
