Altered Valentine Candy Box

Well I just got "You need to be posting more you know!!!!" from my dear friend Lesley. My main excuse is "Well I can get my memory stick from my new camera to upload on my computer and without showing the photos of my crafts, what else can I do?" And I have so many new projects I want to show you!!!!! So until then, I will show you an old craft project that I did for Valentine's Day.

This was made from a candy box that the little heart candies come in, you know the ones with the little messages on them. You see I can't throw anything away, I've always had that issue! However in some ways it has paid off, because I've found a way to use my treasures in my art. It's call altered art. I've had that plastic heart with the love banner across it for years and it was perfect for this piece!!! So when little Hannah said that " Miss Donna has thousands of things in her craft cottage", she was right. And even if Billy (my dear husband) did roll his eyes up when Hannah said that, I will find some use for each item, eventually. A course I keep adding to my collection, with the help of garage sales and friends who clean out their junk jewelry, their children's toy boxes, etc... Well anyway with all that said, I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day this year!!!!

I love what you made with the box! I keep everything too! Just today I cut the front out of my two favorite cereal boxes..tee,hee! My goal this year is to use everything I have before buying any more supplies. Thanks so much for asking how I'm doing :) It will be a while 'til I go for my MRI so until then I am not going to worry about it.

Happy crafting!
