Decorative box for the mini and some happy mail :)

Can you believe I woke up to snow. Yup it covered the ground, wasn't that pleasant. It has all melted now, thankfully.
I know now where I get my energy from....POP.
Because I haven't been able to drink pop all day, I am drained.
I did make a video of my finished baby boy mini, but it takes to long to upload, so that will have to wait until tomorrow. I am off to bed after this post.

I searched high and low for a box to put this mini album in. Well I finally found one at Michael's. It is made out of paper mache. I didn't have a coupon, but wasn't about to drive all the way back home to get it to save $2.00. So when I got it home I covered it with pattern paper and decorated it.
I like how it turned out and it fits the mini and the card :)
              I did do a video though. Today I received some more happy mail. I can not believe how generous all these women are. I feel like I don't do enough in return.        
Boy I am so lucky.

Onto My Day:
Went for lunch with my friend Debbie.
Went looking for a box for the mini.
I bought 2 packs of diapers.....but have yet to start the diaper cake.
Took 2 tiny naps.
Made supper
Picked Kristy up from the movies.
Yup that's about it.
Now time to hit the hay. I have to wake up early for this appointment and I hate getting up early, never mind leaving the house :(

Hope you all had a creative day today.



  1. love the box, it looks flawless!
    can't wait to see the finished project.
    WOW you will be a coloring fool. Love my prisma pencils too. LOL New stamps are always nice.
    busy, busy girl.
    Have a wonderful day tomorrow.;)
    I did get my videos up finally. Have a lot to learn about editing yet!!

  2. Hope your appointment is not too stressing and gotta ask, what is a diaper cake?

  3. great companion box! and what fun mail! good luck today!

  4. Great gift box, and good luck with the diaper cake. I've heard they are easy, but they look like they could be really tough to make. Can't wait to see it! :)

  8. Very cute box! Have fun making the diaper cake! I've never made one myself but I've seen many and they are so cute.

  9. Yes, I can believe you had snow. It is in the forecast here, for tomorrow- my hubby's birthday. Only half of his birthday present has arrived in the mail--hopefully the other half will arrive today.
    Love the box you did for the baby album.
    Now on to the diaper cake.
    I need to check out your video, but I need to use my laptop that actually has sound on it.
    Good luck with your appointment today.
    I need to go to the grocery store, which I consider such a waste of time. Have the grandkids while their mama goes to derby practice tonight. My hubby will finally be home later today. And the kids did manage to share their cold with their nana.

  10. The box is so perfect, I love the baby carriage and banner! And Yay for happy mail!! Sounds like you had a good day, the 2 little naps sound really good to me about I sit here staring at the computer ALL day long, it makes me really sleepy.

    Have a great day Tracy! :)

  11. Happy mail is always fun. I've made two diaper cake and they were so much fun. I hope you have a great time.

  12. That box turned out great! I'm never so good at covering the paper mache ones :) I always love seeing your mail videos, they're so happy! Hope your appointment went okay today!

  13. I just watched the video on your mini and it came out so cute! I wish I could see it in person. You're probably only an 8 hour ride for me LOL. I love the box you made to go with it. I've been really into altering lately.

  14. your box is adorable, woman!

    Gotta love happy mail!! xoxox
