The month of November is the perfect time to express our appreciation for the people in our lives, whether they be friends, neighbors, teachers or family. I made this easy "french fry" box of Kit Kat's for one of my sons sweet teachers:
There are so many people that do so much for me and my family. It's nice to find a way to say thanks, even if it is just in the form of a simple handmade treat. I made the french fry box using a free template that I had gotten years ago, (I believe you can find them online for free). I used my bone folder to make the edges and glued the box together, then embellished it by inking the edges, putting the scrap paper band on it and then adding the stamped "Thanks A Bunch". I threw in a couple broken up Kit-Kat bars for the "french fries" , wrapped it in cellophane and tied the cute ribbon around it. The possibilities are endless with this one. It just doesn't get any easier than this!
I am married to the love of my life, who I affectionately refer to
as WHUB. I have been blessed with the two most amazing children;
McKadee who is 21 (eek!) and constantly leaves me in awe of the
beautiful person that she is, and Hunter who is 14 and keeps me laughing
nonstop with his creativity and never fails to surprise me with his
huge tender heart! Last but not least, I have my furbabies; Max who is
half chihuahua half maltese and Mia who is a long haired chihuahua. Our
latest addition to the fam is our grandfurbaby Lou who is short haired
chihuahua. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and
I try to enjoy every minute that I'm blessed with them.
I love to craft, refinish old furniture and scrapbook..... So many
ideas, so little time!
