You are my Sunshine!!!!

I have such fond memories of this song. Mama use to sing it to us when we were real little. Then when we were old enough we would all sing it together, in round or harmony. (kind of) ;-) I taught it to my boys too. It is a family song, now even Felix sings it with me. When I am down and having a hard time missing the boys or when I would miss mom I would sing this song and bring a smile to my face. (I know where else huh...)
I have a stack of paper I got years ago and never used. I finely decided to use some. I wanted to make the box from the earlier post but didn't want to use paper I really liked in case I messed up the first time. And I have a whole stack of this paper so.... And I love it!! I am keeping this one for myself. I am going to make my mom one with the Chrysanthemums from the previous post. Will post a pix when done.
Well enough chatter... here is the box.

Kind of cute if I do say so myself. 
Have a great weekend!~Nana

Paper Chrysanthemum

I told you last night I would share these, I just love the way they turned out. Will be great to use on lots of things too! Tutorial - Chrysanthemen aus Papier by Steffi Nitzpon  These ladies are so much fun to listen to too. I don't understand German, but they are having so much fun together, I smiled through the whole clip. Enjoy!!  Now here are a couple of pictures of mine.

If you make some, have fun. I sure did. I cheated a bit too. I used my Cricut to cut out the scalloped circles. I was able to get 9 flowers out of one 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch piece of card. Not bad...

Some more boxes

All-righty then.... Here is where I got the tutorial and instructions to make these lovely lovely gift boxes.

Too Cool of her to share huh! Well looky here at some pretties too  Lynn did a beautiful job on her boxes. Gave me a push to try and finish some of mine. Been half done since Felix was here last. And have yet to photo the first box which I claimed as my own. I'll share why when I get pictures of it.
On with the pictures....


I love making these boxes. Keeps my mind and hands doing some thing pretty and good.

I've really been fighting the blues lately. Not seen the sun in a few days and having a difficult time dealing with the deaths of more friends. Well it is almost 3 am and I need some sleep. Been working on some chrysanthemums for cards. Will get pictures of them and a link to the video of how to make them. 
Night Night! XOXO Nana
