~Two little projects~

Sometimes when I go in my studio I just don't have any creative mojo  working for me....yesterday was one of those days....but I really wanted to make or re-do something. Ever have those moments? Yeah, I know you have....:)

This project was super easy, I had already ordered the label pulls a while ago, yesterday I went to Home Depot to get some wood screws....

I think they kinda look like a stack of miniature luggage, don't you think so? I adore old cigar boxes, the older the better I say.

It's hard to beat those beautiful graphics.

This box above is also an old cigar box, but cardboard, not wood. It wasn't nearly as cool so I covered it completely with old wallpaper.

The inside got a makeover as well from some old sheet music pages I had.
So even though I didn't have much creatively going on in my head I was still able to transform some ordinary boxes and that satisfied my "need" to make something.
In a few minutes I'll be making my dd some homemade chocolate chip cookies that she's been hankering for for quite awhile.
A perfect afternoon....hope yours is too..:)
