Snickers Boxes

My favorite box to make is the cute and simple Snickers Box made with the Envelope Punch Board.  When I was making Display samples for the Kansas City Stampin’ Up! convention, I couldn’t resist including this box.

At the Thanksgiving Dinner at our house, my nephew’s wife saw my Stamping Studio and was excited to make something.  Allie ended up making Christmas Snickers boxes for her entire fifth grade class in Manhattan, Kansas.  I know the kids are going to love them!  I wish I would’ve taken a picture of her boxes.

These beautiful Christmas Snickers boxes were Margaret Coffey’s 3-D Swap at the Kansas City On Stage event.  I was blessed to meet her as she shared her boxes with me, and told me she used my directions to make them..  Here’s the link to the directions.

Here’s other Snickers boxes I’ve made the last couple of years.

If you make a Snickers Box, please send me a picture and I’ll share it with everyone!  As Pat Knight taught me, you can fill them with a full size Snickers or four mini Snickers.

So I got my very tall son, Keegan, to help me with the lights on my tallest tree last night.  Unfortunately  only a short string was still working.  He thought we should put them at the very top so when I bought the replacement lights, I wouldn’t need his help.  That boy is always thinking!

Here’s my nativity set which I absolutely love!  It was hand made in Australia by one of our camp counselors from Okoboji, Paul.  Did you notice anything different about this nativity set?  Typically in the USA our nativity sets don’t include kangaroos.  Sadly my kangaroo got his feet broke off during our construction project.  I’m hoping I (ie Superman) can glue him back together.

Ruth Sollberger, I thought you would especially appreciate my kangaroo.  Ruth is my sweet friend who is a Bible Study Fellowship group leader and Stampin’ Up! Demo in Australia.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

 

 

 

Rose Wonder Card Set

I’ll be sharing ten projects that you can find at Craft Project Central this month.  Here’s Regina’s beautiful ensemble.

Treat yourself to some relaxing watercolor “therapy” and, at the same time, create a gorgeous set of greeting cards, complete with a very easy-to-make packaging.  Since this card set has a relatively thin profile, why not create several gift sets to have on hand going into the new year?  They certainly won’t take much storage space, and you’ll be so glad to have them when you need a lovely gift.

Superman and Abby got a tree put up in the Sunroom, but the lights and decorations are still not up.

These birthday gift tags and coordinating box were so much fun to make!  I got the idea for the box of tags from Kadie Labadie. Here’s the link to Kadie’s instructions for the box.

Abby and Keegan spent a couple hours this afternoon at a local senior living facility helping senior citizens with their technology.  I can’t remember if I’ve told you that for Abby’s Senior Honors project she started an organization called Tech Support for Seniors.  She’s recruited high school students and most every Saturday they visit a senior facility and give free help to the residents.  Some Saturdays they go one place in the morning and another place in the afternoon.  The most common request they get is, “How do I connect to the wifi?”  The high school students earn “silver cord hours” or volunteer hours.  The senior citizens get to meet some really neat kids and get help with their cell phones, ipads etc.  Abby has gotten some really sweet emails from people who appreciated the help they received.

While Abby and Keegan were gone, Superman and I tackled putting together our very tall Christmas tree.  After the entire tree was in place, Steve decided it wasn’t stable, so we ended up picking the whole tree up out of the stand.  It was going to be my job to hold the tree while he fixed the stand.  However, the “tree trunk” is in two pieces and came apart unexpectedly.  I believe if we had been filming this ordeal you would be laughing hysterically right now.  Some how after much maneuvering the tree is back in the stand and pretty much standing up straight.  I’ll let you know if it falls over during the night.  Our next step is lights and ornaments.  I wanted to mention to Superman that I would like to also put a tree up in the new Sun room, but after 30 years of marriage I decided timing is everything and I’ll wait to make that request at a later date.

Hope you’re having a good weekend.  Please comment at the top of this post and let me know what Christmas preparations you have done.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂
