This month I thought we cold alter a Kleenex box cover
with at least one Maggie image and covered complexly on all sides.
You can buy a chipboard one at M's or you can shop the resale shops
for one. I have found two at resale shops myself and also have one from M's
I bought. Also you should make a wish list of 5 different Magnolia stamps or something
in the $15 range. ( before shipping)
You only buy your partner one of them but this gives them some alternatives.
Ship date will be September 28th. No flakers please.
If you click on the link you can see the second one made with some paper I bought
from Barb. The lavender one has a gorgeous butterfly KM made for my bfly swap awhile
back.

So who would like to play?

Like I said Michaels sells these for $5 in chipboard that you can
cover or check out resale shops, I got the purple one at one of those.

Oh and don't forget to stop in and chat with me otherwise I get soooo lonely!

Just snooping around.....sorry I missed this one. I am a little over-whelmed at the moment. I love making stuff like this, even if I am actually "Tilda" challenged. She is a cutie but I don't buy many of them...and it is not my decor of choice...but real cute for gifts !

Have fun you two ! I will check in once in a while BigGrin

Ok Kathy -- I ordered the Kleenex box, the Maggie stamp and I already had the colors of paper you wanted. So, I am ready to go. Now, just to see what I can come up with that will knock your socks off. I am caught up on my swaps and I really want to do this one up because it is a challenge.

Now, let's see what you're up to. I see you love to chat and you get lonely on here. Everyone gets after me about not sticking around much. I do well for awhile and then I stop. But I find when I don't bog myself down is when I do well. That's why I am watching what I sign up for. No more overloading myself.

So -- what's up for the next couple of days, lady! Are we going to see who gets their box first? Or --- who comes up with their idea first? Or --- who falls off the wagon first by not posting a little note at least every other day? Challenge, we need a challenge! LOL.

Take care and by the way, hi to you all that didn't get to join us. Hope you'll come join us next month. Kathy has great ideas and this swap is really great.

Now that I placed my order, I am just having fits for it to get here. I want to get started on my box so bad. I think I have a good idea to do for you and I am being held up by a silly order. Oh well, I'll just keep busy with getting things ready so I won't have to be looking for everything.

Hope you're having a good weekend. Take care.

Yay, Evelyn is getting chatty!LOL
And Barb even stopped in to say hi!

A challenge huh, hmmm well my box is ordered too, I
did color one Maggie image but can't decide if I will
use that one or several or a totally different one.
I forget where that box is coming from, is the store
closer to your house or mine? LOL
I have already received your stamp I ordered so
I am good there.
I found out recently that since they closed a sorting plant here
that we don't even have a usps overnight option here anymore.Blink
Two days is about the quickest they can offer unless you go with FED EX
express like where my dh worked.
Ah well, I am chatted out for now, insurance companies are driving
me totally crazy here.... the good news is I am planning to drive
to Janice's crop with my ds for Saturday of her crop, later this month
then drive back home. She only lives a few hrs away from me.
Evelyn too bad you won't be there....
Well ttfn & have a good evening

Sure wish I could be at the crop too. Sounds like a good time. Have fun and get lots done. Sure, right!

My box still hasn't arrived. I think I'm starting to have fits. I have your paper ready, all the things I want to do AND NO BOX! Crying

But the good news is I am starting to work on Christmas. Barb has some Christmas stuff that is out of this world and I just couldn't resist. So, I am excited about that.

Well, I made a complete mess in my craft room. I now have to clean it up. My dog, Max refuses to help. His philosophy is you did it, you clean it up. I ask him does that apply to your back yard when we have to go out and clean it up. No answer! So, I am cleaning up my room, starting on some new projects and I think I'll even turn on some happy music so me and Max don't start arguing about the back yard again.

Have a great day.

Hello Evelyn,
Sounds like that Max is a real trouble makerLOL
What kind of dog is he? I have my own trouble maker here too,
her name is Daisy Mae and she is a mostly basset hound party beagle
pound puppy.
I got an email today that my box shipped but it's in Spokane Wa so
it has a ways to go yet to get to me. I am working on something else for
you though in the meantimeWub
Well I gotta run, hugs and happy crafting to you!

Well Evelyn,
I am now finished with your Kleenex box.
I hope you will like what I created for you.
I am having some issues with my digi camera right now
so I may need you to post pics of yours and mine, if you
don't mind?
Are you getting close to shipping or should I hold off
a little bit?
Have a great day

Wow Kathy -- You really did move fast on this one. I received my box last Saturday and got started on it right away. It is really a nice little project though. I didn't think it was going to be this easy. The fun was when I started putting everything on it. Then, I really started to enjoy the box. I am so glad we did this. I know it was well worth my time.

So, you will be getting your box soon. I will mail on Thursday. I might be able to get it mailed tomorrow but I need some boxes so, we'll have to get those and then get it ready for mailing. I can't believe I don't have a small box. Ugh---

Have a nice week and take care. Oh by the way, Max is a black lab. He is so precious. Max is now 15 1/2 years old and spoiled rotten. Pets are so comforting.

Well, I will post again with my DC# and thanks so much for hosting.

Yay Evelyn. It looks like we are both on our A game this monthBigGrin
I am ready to ship also, I just have to get it all packaged and to the PO.
My garage is full of boxes so that shouldn't be a problem here.
It was fun creating for you, I hope and pray that you like the way
I went with thisUnsure But I like it so I hope you will too, and I
know I'll love yours as well cause I always love your crafting creations.
Hugs to you,

Oh Evelyn, I hope and pray you get a good test result too!
Dh is going to therapy now to get stronger and better balance, and that
is helping somewhat. His feet are still swollen and sore and he has very little
feeling in them ( neuropathy) I am hoping it won't be permanent.
I just need to get my stuff for you boxed up and to the PO. We really got these
done quickly this month didn't we?
I'll try and get yours out tomorrow if I can.
Oh and I am fine with the stationary idea if you want to try that.
Another idea I had was for some gift tags, maybe some Christmas ones or
a mix of Christmas and all occasion? Either way I am fine.
Hugs to you
Kathy

Kathy -- We are saying extra prayers for you and hubby. It works, I am a good example of it.

Also, for next month the gift tags sound really good. Would we use the mini Magnolias or how would that work? I thought of another idea too -- how about a dishwasher magnet (DIRTY OR CLEAN)with our Magnolia stamps? can be a refrigerator magnet as well. Just have to state the size. But one more idea I thought of that might be fun is a set of coasters (4) for the holidays. I thought of a bunch more things to do but they may be better to do after Christmas.

Can't wait for you to let us know what's up for next month.

Hi Evelyn, thanks for all he ideas, I had dh mail your box today.
He isn't back yet from his errands yet but later today or soon I will
post your dc#
Re ideas: I haven't heard of dishwasher magnets, do you have a link to share for those?
Also I would love to see the links for the stationery set as well. Coasters
sound awesome too, do we just alter coasters we already have? How do you keep
the papers from getting ruined if you use it as a coaster?
I haven't decided for sure yet about next month, I think we would want to make
the tags big enough to hold a reg sized Maggie tho. I only have a couple minis
and none of them are Christmassy and I really don't want to buy any more of those.
I just prefer to have projects we can use for some purpose. I have also been wondering
about doing something with cloth, I remember someone posted a material project with
Maggies on them too, not sure f they used copics or what. Anyway, I am just thinking out loud.
