Happy 4th of July!

It is the strangest thing...I'm not in the good old USA, and today is just another day! It's sad....but I haven't even thought much about what today really is...I hope you are all having a great time at your BBQ's and fireworks-enjoy some for me too!:)
So, I'm back. You know how sometimes, as un-fun as it is, stamping just doesn't come? Its sad but true. I've gotten to my desk today and it feels so good!!:) It really does something to me to sit down and just start! I was very excited!

I've been contemplating making a coaster box for quite a while...I was browsing on SCS and found that there was even a Coaster Box Tutorial so I decided to make one for my tools that I keep on my desk. I did mine a little different than the tutorial said, I used Stampin' Up's Anywhere Glue stick to adhere my paper to my coasters. Then for the bottom, I just punched some holes in it and tied it with ribbon, just like I did for the sides. I am happy with how it turned out...I have about 3 packages of the Au Chocolate paper...I love it so much! I'm glad that the new catty has similar paper.

Oh, I completely forgot!! I got my new catalog yesterday! My mom had it expressed to me and it only took 5 days to get to me!:) Can we say happy dance!? I have been through it "just a few times" already!! And let's just say I have a very HEALTHY wish list! I just had to laugh when I took my first total...only about 1200$$...but I can wish right?! For those of you that have your catalogs, I'd love to know what your favorite new set and accessory are....?

SO, there is my new coaster box! It makes me so's fun to have things that make me happy where I can see them!
Have a great day! And thanks for stopping by!:)
