I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Well......I'm reallllly tired today.  Prissy and I were asked if we would help decorate planter boxes for her grandson's,Tristan, boyscout troupe.  They are holding a fundraiser for a trip to Washington D.C.  When we arrived at the greenhouse we didn't realize we were the decorating committee.  They told us the sky was the limit and we could do anything we wanted on the boxes.  After taking a look at some of the great attempts the boys made at decorating I told Prissy about the idea of adding a metal front.  We ran this though the creatopia machine for embossing and added to the fronts.  We also had seen an idea of using soda cans for flowers...perfect time to try.  We cut up some cans and ran them thru the cuttlebug, embossed a few and I think they added a great accent to the boxes.  After a really long day we finished 26 boxes.  We can't wait to see them put plants in them to see what great gifts this will make for any special mom, aunt, grandmother or another special lady in your life....Happy Mother's Day!

Just in case some one reading Freddie's blog wants to go buy one - it's Troupe 80 on Plains Blvd.

Great job Freddie and Prissy!
