DREAMS COME TRUE & another Giveaway

Since I moved to Utah 3 years ago and found out about MY CRAFT CHANNEL 
I’ve been hooked.  
DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE!
Lucky for me I attended a fun weekend full of crafting and met some of the most wonderful, funny ladies EVER who happened to host on My Craft Channel!  We became fast friends and I literally felt like they were my long lost sisters.  Lori and Tausha are the best.  Later they called me and asked me to appear on a show hosted by the multi-talented Kristine McKay.  I jumped at the chance to hang out with these awesome ladies again.  Literally, it was the most fun time I’ve had in a while.  We laughed, chatted, and I even sang Italian opera to Lori who recently took a trip to Italy!  That’s not on this episode…haha.  That was special just for her.  She deserved a little serenade.  She’s just that awesome.  🙂  Anyway, check out their channel and of course, my episode. 
 You can always find something awesome to create through MY CRAFT CHANNEL.

    but washi tape is a close second.
    Love this idea and will be making one this week for a birthday gift. Thank you for inspiring me to be creative.

      Ohh that's good. Great place for those special love notes. 😉 Do one that matches your bedroom and put in on a dresser or night stand. Oh the ideas!

    Totally love this idea! I have made balsa boxes for friends, but they are so small. I would love to give them something to inspire their creativity too. I would put inspirational craft ideas and quotes in their altered mixed media boxes. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks! It means the world to me…you are an amazing lady! I think notes are perfect. Maybe weekly notes the whole family could put in the box secretly then open on Sunday's and read?? We do that in our home for Valentines month, but yearly box would be awesome too to inspire "love at home". Thanks for your support! – Laurie

      The reason I love mixed media is because it's so forgiving and easy. Just get started and BUILD. That's the beauty of it. Best of luck!

      My girls LOVED making their own boxes. One of my daughters did a Disney themed one to save all her memorabilia from our Disney World trips. These boxes really do work for anything! Good luck! – Laurie
