Ode to Tin Boxes

             Oh, Tin Boxes how I love to decorate you!
In various colors...green, pink and blue.

With you I can create so many wonderful things.
A holder of recipes, or my necklaces & rings.

Or perhaps filled with treats for potty training,
or homemade greeting cards for relationship maintaining.

Or as an emergency kit in the back of my car,
Band aids and neosporin never be far!

The possibilities with you are endless.
You make my craft room a hot mess!
But none.the.less... 

Tin Boxes,

Enjoy crafting your tin boxes!!!



1. Have you ever broke a bone or anything on your body?
I got a slight fracture to my right hip in high school during a dance competition...It was humilitaing!
It was also a good thing because I learned that my bone density is that of a woman twice my age! 
Now I know how to make my body absorb calcium. 
Im lucky I havent had more breaks!

2. What is your favorite drink?
Ice cold water! Unless, Im eating mexican food {my fav!} Then, I HAVE to have a Pepsi:)

3. When is your birthday! You don't have to tell the year you were born!
April 23! This past birthday was special cuz I turned 23 on the 23rd!

4. Do you have an allergies?
YES! And they are fairly recent discoveries. I have Celiac disease {allergy to gluten} and a severe lactose intolerance.

5. What is one of your all time favorite movies?
I used to know all the lines in Sweet Home Alabama! 
I also LOVE The Little Mermaid...Ahh childhood memories:]

  1. So cute! Thanks for linking up to Mad Skills Monday!

  2. That's a great list of blog parties. Thanks for posting. Pepsi seems to be a popular beverage today. Too bad about celiac, although it isn't as difficult to live with as a decade ago. We have a grocery store only two blocks from our house dedicated solely to gluten free products. She's busy all the time, and her prices are not horrible. I think it's called Janelle's. She's online, if you're interested.

  3. Sweet Home Alabama made my list, too! LOVE that movie. :) Visiting from Hoo Are You!

  4. Great idea. Where do you get yours? I'd love to decorate some with my new Cricut. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday:)

  5. I love sweet home alabama too! I used to watch it in the middle of the night when my son was a newbie. Thanks for visiting over at my junk drawer. I am a new follower!

  6. Loved reading your blog today. The pinecone tree ring is something that is going to happen in my yard! I am going to place your button on my sight.
