Yep, I Haven't Posted in Two Whole Years but I am Back!

We have all gotten to a point in our lives that something had to give and for me, back in 2019, it was this blog.  I have continued my small stamping business but had to step away from the computer and blogging.  I am not a real Chatty Cathy so blogging is a challenge for me.  So I stepped back for awhile and then Covid hit and my business suffered tremendously.  I am finally ready to get back to stamping and teaching so I am going to begin blogging again.

Feedburner who was sending my blog posts to subscribers is going away as of July so I had to do a few things even if I wasn't blogging.  One of them is to get set up with a new service to send out the emails and I have decided to use Follow.it.  Email subscribers will see they have some new options that they never had before.  Let me know what you think about it.

So I hope you are looking forward to seeing posts from me in the future.  I am looking forward to getting back to it!  Here's my first for you.  Something a little different but I hope you like it.

You will find this little crate at the Dollar Tree for just $1.  I thought it would be a great adhesive and tool caddy.  However, everything kept falling over.  Solution:  Section off portions for the various items.


Here are the cut sizes for the sections that I created.  A couple of tips if you are making one - First, cut along the score lines so that the tabs will be glued to the largest sides.  Second, trim the tabs so they are half the width of the tab you will be gluing them to - that way they do not overlap.  Third, glue the tabs on the outside so the insides are smooth.

Now you can decorate the crate however you wish - paint it, cover it with Designer Series Paper, or leave it as is!
