Happy Monday! How's the weather where you are? It's been terribly cold here, like 2 degrees Fahrenheit cold! There's no other way to survive but to bundle up and think happy thoughts.
My happy thoughts? An island getaway, picnic in the park, a backyard barbecue, a bouquet of sunflowers, banana pudding, and sweet tea.
Clearly these are all things I associate with warm, sunny days.
Here's a box that was once home for chocolate covered raisins.
It's made of birch veneer, raw and unfinished.
I think a little painting is in order.
I put on several layers of this cheerful yellow, allowing the paint to dry in between coats.
I also painted the inside of the box.
I'm using it to wrap a present. Instead of a ribbon, a colorful strip of fabric scrap.
Then I top it off with this laser cut bird. I'm still undecided whether to paint the bird or not. What do you think?
A whole new look for an old blah box. TADA!
