I "struck" gold....

Here is the "re-purposed" matchbox I received...

 ...filled with wonderful goodies and treasures!

 from my sister Diane at Saturday Finds!

 A swap with "sparks" of fun!

It's a "re-match"...a re-purposed matchbox

There's a whole community of crafters out there that dress up ordinary matchboxes
for all kinds of occasions and themes, stuff their little drawers with bits of goodness + send 
them off to brighten others' mailboxes!

Here is the re-purposed matchbox I decorated and sent off to my sister, 
Diane at Saturday Finds...
who in turn has made some to send to her lucky recipients!

I filled it with all sorts of goodies that she could add to her crafting stash...
and use for her future crafting projects!

I had fun making this miniature "happy day" banner for her too!

Hope she likes it!

Saying Goodbye....

I am so sorry to have been away for a time, but after a long illness, 
my step father passed away and 
I traveled to California to be with my mom!
Hal was 83 and he and my mom had a wonderful marriage and a very full life!

While in California I was able to lunch with my mom and her girlfriends....
(aren't they beautiful?)

 Visit the local "Cupcake Wars" winning cupcake shop...

 ...and give my mom a mini-make-over!

And despite us all coming down with a terrible intestinal flu...(awful)
I truly cherished our time together (every minute)!

We love you, Hal, and miss you already!

I will post my "matchbox" challenge tomorrow!

Coffee & Crafting....

 Happy to have the day off to get in my craft room...
I am busy re-purposing a matchbox for a swap
 with my sister Diane in California...

What are you working on today!

Stay Cozy & Crafting,
