Gift Giving

How often do you guys make 3-D projects? They kind of intimidate me! Lots of planning and scoring and folding oh my. It gets intense. So I got really excited when I saw all the cool 3-D downloads on the Silhouette Store. I had to try some!

My Mom has a drawer in the laundry room full of little gifts so she's always prepared. I've gained that same habit and now love having cute packaging around too. These two projects would be great for quick and impressive gifts. Seriously, I will take anything wrapped in this lattice box!

embellishment: juliette ribbon

We always have gift cards lying around, and they make great thank you gifts. This box is the perfect size for them! It doesn't even need embellishing with that lovely lid, but I thought I would play a little anyway.

embellishments: on the coast borders, on the coast chiplet, juliette ribbon

Our giveaway today is absolutely fantastic! We have a Rhinestone Starter Kit for you! I know you all love a little bling, so don't be shy. To enter, leave a comment telling us what has been wonderful about your week! This giveaway ends Sunday at midnight. And don't forget to go to the Silhouette Blog for a free download of the shapes from my projects monday!

I'm on summer break from work, so everything is pretty much great right now.. but I've had some good times with my daughter the last couple of days. That's even better.

The wonderful thing about this week is that I got to see my family. We live a long way away from them so we drove 2 full days to see them. The kids are having fun!

Monika said...

I guess the cutest thing would be that my almost 7-year old said that she had to let go of her tooth fairy pillow and roll over (at 5am this morning...she had been holding tight to it ALL night) so that the tooth fairy could leave her a dollar!

My wonderful week started off with a family reunion on Sunday. I was reunited with cousins I have not seen in over 30 years, and some I had never met.
Monday was our 13th anniversary!!
Tuesday was the kids last day of school and we booked our summer vacation to Ohio!
Can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings!

my babe cooked me dinner tonight after work!

Janell said...

I got together with my aunt and cousin (who is home from college) and we got pedicures. It was fun to visit and relaxing. Now we have pretty toes and smooth feet. Woohoo!

Summer Braxton said...

This is beautiful! My fave thing this week SO FAR is my little girl sleeping well in her new big girl bed. It was a perfectly smooth transition.

My best thing for the week is that on Monday I went back to my local gym and have gone everyday so far this week. Yeah!!

Melinda AKA medialady said...

This has been my first week off from driving the school bus and I have been able to stay at home to catch up on lots of rest!

Christine said...

Everyday of every week is wonderful and a precious gift! Other than that, I have spent a lot of time creating this week!!! That is the thing I love most to do!

Blessings,
Christine

On Tuesday I got to spend a couple of hours with my 9 month old grandson. We went for a walk and then I read him some books. He is the highlight of my life!

The wonderful thing about this week is that my 18 year old finally got a call for an interview and has a second interview for next week! Looks like he finally might have a job!

Lillian Child said...

My week is especially good as I've had a chance to spend time with my 2-year old grandson this week. I just love watching him discover his world, and then try to tell us about it with his ever growing vocabulary. He just makes me smile out loud!!

Scrapycandy said...

I've got a cold but I have to say my soon to be graduate is really on top of things for his last week of school with tons of deadlines. I am sooo proud!

Stephen and Heather said...

My favorite thing this week has been watching my kids play baseball. I love summer and all the fun activities.

Denise said...

My hubby has been so sweet (because he's going away golfing this weekend) by cooking our family dinners two nights in a row!!

Stacey said...

The best thing about my week so far was having my daughters and their friends over for dinner and then we all went and hit golf balls to work off the meal - casual and fun!

Christine said...

I have started riding my bike to work this summer...and I am really enjoying it! So much so, that I have been getting up earlier than I need to because I am so excited about my ride to work! Crazy...but cool!

C said...

This week has had virtually no stress at work which makes it a wonderful week. I even have time to catch up on my SEI blog.

Benga said...

It's almost weekend and finally after 2 months we will be having a scrapmeet again with my scrappy friends tomorrow

The cool thing about this week is that I buy a new computer : A MAC!

Kissin' Krafts said...

I would say that the most wonderful thing about this week, is that all my kids are home from school...however, right now I have one pulling on my shirt crying about the other one :)

the mustik said...

This monday i cook a big cheesecake, so every day I eat some with my kids...yum

isabel scrap said...

The best thing for this week is that I have a hair cut... i'm so beautiful now ;-)

Tanya said...

Actually this week has been pretty rough for us. But I guess the best thing about it would have to be that even though my hubby is far away, the kids and I can still talk to him over the phone :) thank you

Scoobie said...

I have been feeling slightly dizzy for the last week. I guess I either have low blood pressure or am a little anemic. Anyway, the summer cold which hit me early this week, was just wonderful: I don't feel that little dizzything anymore: my mind is occupied with the feeling of having an exploding forehead, jaws and teeth hurting and making sure I have enough paper tissues around.

Thank you, summer cold. It even hurts to put foundation on my face!

Jennifer said...

This has been a great week, I've had a couple opportunities to craft, which is something I love doing to wind down from work and the busy evenings.

Lori McMurphy said...

I love bling! What a great giveaway. :) Spending time with my 2 year old son and getting some scrapbooking done has made my week wonderful.

Jen Clark said...

My week was wonderful because we rescued a baby bunny & then I won a contest on the Silhouette Blog!! :)

smahrty said...

My mom was able to come visit and see her grandaughter graduate from 5th grade. So fun to have mom/grandma around and happy she is healthy enough to travel.
