A Big Thank You

Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Thanks for being patient with me while I adjust to having a new baby, a family of 7 and putting my house back together after finishing the basement.  It's been a lot to take in the past 4 weeks, but the good news is my feet are now actually looking like feet instead of floaties, I actually have a craft room where all my goodies can live together in one place (finally), and the heartburn that comes with pregnancy is a thing of the past.  I can feel the creative juices flowing again, and as soon as I get more than 5 hours of sleep in one night (preferably in one stretch, but I"m not picky) I'm looking forward to getting things rolling again here.  In the mean time, I thought I'd share a couple of the thank you's I made to show my appreciation for all the help I received during my pregnancy and after. :)
I got these pillow boxes as swag from Pick Your Plum at a blogging event.  I knew I wanted to give some dear friends chocolate and I figured these would be a fun way to do it.  I used some left over supplies from some cards I had designed earlier, so they were pretty easy to put together.  I used Washi tape to make tabs on the insert so my friends could see which side to open it from and could pull out the little note inside.
These cards are pretty simple, but fun.  Sometimes it's nice to just see someone's take on something to spark your own creativity- so I hope this sparks something for you.  The best thing about these is the "thanks" is a rub on from American Crafts that has multiple sayings so you can create more than one and you don't use up all the letters in an alphabet pack. :)
Once again- thanks to all of you, for your visits, your readership and your congratulations.  We are really loving our darling girl.
I'll be back soon.

XOXO,
Amy
