Mailbox and Greeting Card

Craft Project Central, Stampin' Up!, Valentine's Day

Here’s the first February project from Craft Project Central designed by Monika.  It’s an adorable treat box resembling a mailbox for your sweetheart. Fill it with some yummy treats and some special notes. This little mail box will look great on any desk.  The project is great for a stamp camp, or as a class project.

This looks like another gift I can make and give Mike to fill and give back to me!  I love gifts like that.  Not only do I get to create them – which is a gift in itself, but because the “giver” didn’t have to buy packaging or a card, he has more money to spend on things to fill it.  It’s a win-win-win.  (Two wins for me; one win for him.  Except if he fills it with something especially nice, he’ll get a double win, too.)

What can I say?  I’ve never been one of those wives who waits to see if her husband will remember her birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day or other special holidays.  I love my husband, but sometimes he has the attention span and memory of a gnat.  It’s not his fault; he’s just a man.  He thinks about the mortgage, whether we have enough firewood to get through this cold snap, how to juggle two businesses and a family…stuff like that.  So I really don’t mind starting to remind him of my September birthday in, oh, June.   He has enough on his mind.  I know he loves me, and I want presents, so why should I try to test him and make both of us feel bad if he forgets?  It’s not worth it.  And I’m happy to say that in over 31 years, he has never forgotten my birthday or our anniversary.  (It was close one year; we both forgot our anniversary until it was almost over!  Busy month.)

Head over to Craft Project Central and subscribe to February for only $10, and you’ll get tutorials for all of February’s projects.  And be sure to play along with the “Creating Pretty Cards” sketch challenge for February when it’s posted.  You may win a month’s subscription if your card is chosen at the end of the month.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful, treat-filled day!
