Day 2 Report

I got some grief from a friend that I was showing my "first day of craft month" on March 2. Then she marveled that I am doing this craft-a-day thing in real time. I may have gathered the ideas and some of the materials already, but each day I sit down to make a new craft--start to finish. And then I try to find the time to blog about it. It gets a little busy. But it's fun!


Yesterday, I made something that you cannot take on an airplane...an exploding box! (Okay, take it but call it a photobox or something.)

Once you take the top off, you have four sections of three pages each that you can use to display (very very small) photos. I made this in Christmas papers because I figured it would get the most use that way. I was thinking of putting photos from a variety of Christmases in there and giving it to a deserving relative. Cute, right?

Tutorial here; she starts out in inches, but ends up in centimeters. Don't be afraid, you can figure it out. That is what Google is for.

Tomorrow: A sagaciousness of owls.

That is SUPER cute! I love the idea of doing it for a wedding, using papers / colors that match the wedding theme.
