Craft Boxes Unleashed...

It's a Michelle Palmer snowman...

These are artist samples I received a few
years back from one of our manufacturers.
Our design was on a few different products...
but never became all that popular.


The design would have been more successful
had I surrounded my snow fella with
snowflakes instead of fall leaves!
After all... who builds a snowman when
leaves are still on the ground?

We do!
Expecting lake effect snow showers...
And we are still raking leaves...
Several of our trees haven't gotten the word
that it is "fall" and they need to drop!


Throughout the year I find Christmas
craft materials and toss them in one of
the boxes... and quickly forget what treasures
I have found until late Sept. early Oct.~

As I look through at some of the "stuff"
I try to remember why I bought it...
What cool craft/gift idea I may have had?
I think this summer I will add a
quick sketch & a few notes with the treasures...
My creative memory needs a little jump start!

Hope your day is sunny & sweet!

I love boxes, have them full of all my nature finds plus all my sewing treasures. Then the boxes full of art materials. Better stop there. How lovely to have your own design on boxes. I am just painting Autumn leaves.
We would make good neighbours.
Best wishes Millyx

In your beautiful,leafy snowman's defense I have pictures of my kids building a full-sized snowman the day after Thanksgiving. Maybe, 4 years ago???

I like your boxes and the fall colours give warmth and as Peggy has already said, you can't have too many stacking boxes!
