Crafting With Callie- Making Keepsake Box

Making  box out of popsickle sticks
[it is about 3-4 inches deep]
The box has dried, and has been painted. Now.
getting ready to modpodge some scrapbooking
paper to the inside.[Doesn't she look very intent
on this job?]
She added beads, sequins and lots of  decorations.
And LOTS of decorations.
Callie..happy with her finished peice.
Of course...after finishing the keepsake box, she had to make
her a necklace out of the left over beads.

Callie, sent me a letter [a real letter in the mail], a couple
weeks ago. I was so shocked to get it.. And really shocked
that she kept the secret , until the mail arrived to deliver it.,ha
She told me, she had found alot of beads and sequins and
that she and I ought to get together and  make something.
She just couldn't think of anything, we could do with
the stuff.. Well, Saturday ,she came and spent the night
with us. And we had so much fun crafting. Such wonderful
memories. [And yes Papa and I , are both missing her today!!]


  1. ...a lovely young lady, and blessed grandparents to have the time with her! D.

  2. Thank you Deedy.. We had lots of fun and enjoyed her being here.

  3. Such a sweet post. I love that my children know their grandparents (although I don't think they've done many craft projects with them - you are special that way!!).

    That's a cool box. My girl would love to make/decorate one of those.

    1. Thank you Margo, I SO enjoy crafting/sewing with my grandaughters.. They are so fun.
      The little popsickle stick box was fun and easy to make.. We glued them with elmers glue and it was dried in no time, so we could paint and decorate.. Such a fun treat..
