"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Party Favors
Boxes & Rosette Magnets

Although recovery from my back surgery is not going as planned (does it ever?), I have been able to get into my craft room for some fun. 

The minister's wife asked for help and I said yes!  She has a daughter's wedding in a few months, a Women's Ministry meeting in April, and a girls' group luncheon in May, all requiring "something!"  Wedding invitations: Done!  Party favors for dinner: Done!  Next project: 35 mini albums for the girls.

Below are the little boxes and rosette magnets I made as party favors (100 of each!).  Original box designed by Carin Curtis.  I stamped and hand cut 300 cowboy boots to fit into the theme of the meeting.  Details are below the pictures. (Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures.)
