Thought for the day -

Good Morning! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Our weather this weekend was fabuous!! I wish I had spent more time outside....before it's too late. haha

I did spend a great Saturday evening with some friends crafting.  Sonia organized this little gathering to get a jump start on our Christmas cards. How many did I get done....not a one!  I am working on gift bag holders for Jordan's class for his Christmas party.  Last year I purchased a box of coasters - a box of 800! So I have to find ways to use some of these.  Splitcoast has a great tutorial for these little gift boxes.

Each little box uses 5 coasters so I counted out 110 coasters (22 students) and managed to get all 110 covered with dp- both sides! Now it is on to the assembly process.  I was able to get 1 assembled last night for this weeks
Sunshine Monday project.

These are the cutest boxes once assembled!  I used ric-rac ribbon on this one with the fun snowman paper(don't know who it is by). My image is called Hang On! from the current Christmas/Winter line at Sunshine & Giggles.  This line is perfect for this project.

I will be back later, hopefully before Christmas, (hahaha) with a picture of all 22 assembled with their little goody bags.  I think this will keep me busy over the next couple of weekends.

Sunshine and Giggles has also gone digital! The whole Christmas/Winter line is now available as digitals as well as in rubber.  I had always said I prefer my rubber but since I started using digi's I am hooked. I love being able to resize them for various projects. Don't have that versatility with rubber, do ya!
Be sure to visit Sunshine's Design Team to see what they have to offer this week.
