a 2.99 bit of history....



So I found this a while back at Goodwill with the idea of using it for some type of storage for my stuff. I had been using it to hold my wood mounted stamps but because of the smaller size boxes (0nly like 1.5x2) it really left a lot of unused space. Then several months ago I saw a trash to treasure type of fine over on Ali Edwards blog. Well since redoing my space I had removed my stamps from this and thought of trying my hand with Ali's idea. I had so much fun making this today. Lots of pictures of us from the last year or so but also included one of my favorites of the boys way back when.....look at how lil' they were! So now I have to decide just how I am going to hang this on the wall that leads down our little hallway. If you look close you can see it in the picture to the left...the hall that is a rather short hall. And hey...lookie there, the floor to my room looks fairly clean. Guess the angle of this picture the pile of dirty laundry from two boys and me is hidden ;o) trust me though...it's there and I should have been working on it instead of this. Oh this was sooo much more fun and statisfying! Sooo now to decided how to hang this...ribbon, no ribbon....Suggestions anyone???
