Sweet Inspiration Boxes


Heather of Speckled Egg hosted the Second Annual Inspiration Box Swap last month. Each of us were to fill a large matchbox with things to inspire our partners to create something for Valentine's Day. You'd be surprised how much you can fit into these small boxes! The old saying, "Good things come in small packages" certainly applies here. The photos above show the box (and contents) that I created for my 3 swap partners - Sarah, Marian and Andrea. And pictured below are the beautiful boxes these ladies created for me!

Then my friend Cerri and I were having so much fun creating these boxes for our swap partners that we decided to do a private swap with each other and this is the sweet box that she made for me:
And this is the box I sent to Cerri:

The boxes you made and the ones you received are just precious. So many sweet little things to wrap up and send to a friend...lovely. Your blog has the best music of any that I visit. Sometimes I stay a long time just to listen. Very soothing! Joyce
