A Gift For a Friend

I recently saw this idea and just had to copy it. It's a stationary box filled with cards, envelopes, gift tags, a note pad, stamps and a pen. It is sooooo cute and not nearly as difficult to make as I thought it would be. A little time consuming and careful following of directions, but not difficult. I love that Robert has his light tent now and can get some really great shots of my projects! Anyway, I sent this to my friend Karly in Arizona (hence the "k" in the center). From the message she left, I think she liked it.;o)

We went blueberry picking again today, and this time we filled 3 containers whereas last time we only filled one. There were just tons of them! Lily ended up eating pretty much all of the ones she picked. It reminded me very much of the book Blueberries for Sal, one of my favorites as a kid. Afterwards we came home and made blueberry pancakes for lunch. Yummy! I'll post pictures of that soon. In the meantime, here are the pictures of the stationary box.

It's gorgeous. You do such an amazing job on all of your crafts. It's so hard to imagine that you have the time to do these time consuming crafts with Princess Lily being nearly two (is that even possible?), and being on the go. You are quite a mom!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I LOVE this gift, it is so dear to me!

I cherish our friendship, Julianne! And I love your creativity! :)

That is so beautiful! Did you make all of this from scratch? If so, are you willing to share the pattern? I'd love to come learn from you, but it's a little too far. :D
