Hey there.....check out my nifty toolbox!!!!!

Hello everyone!!! I finally got some time for crafting this week. Unfortunately, we've had a lot going on with our family. We found out on August 12th that my husband's middle child (Janice is 46) has lung cancer. She is now taking chemo once a week and radiation everyday during the week with the weekends off. Please be sure and keep Janice in your prayers! Also during this time my youngest son (Chad..age 36) had a really bad intestinal infection and lost a lot weight. He had cancer (Wilms Tumor) when he was 3 1/2 years this really scared me. He is better now...thank God!

This past Sunday, I attended one of Klo Oxford's online classes for the Pazzles Inspiration Creative Cutter (last year I served on their design team) and she presented a toolbox template designed by Wendy @ Poppy Hill Designs (you can find her here). Wendy was kind enough to give those of us that attended the class the cutter files for it...thanks Wendy! Here is what I came up craft room is mostly black, white and grey:

And here is a photo of inside. I added some strips of self adhesive magnetic tape to add weight and stability. For the handle on top, I used another one of the Spellbinders "Fancy Tags". Thanks for looking.....I just love my little toolbox!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Pam,
Thanks for your comment on my blog!!
Love your toolbox too!!

I didn't use a tutorial for the Christmaslight. I read, I could find one on this site;

but I just couldn't find it , so I just tried it myself.
Take a piece of card stock from 10,5 by 6 inch. Scor at long side at 0,5 inch, 3 inch, 5,5 inch and
8 inch. Then on short side score at 2,5. And from then it's up to you ;-)
