M & M's Therapy

Not the candy, Melody and Michelle's. My BFF came over for the day. We usually plan on doing a project with not much follow through. Today however was productive and therapeutic.

We have had these paper mache' boxes for a while now. We considered covering them with fabric, decoupage or painting. We decided to draw our designs on with pigma pens and colored them in with My little ones pencils. It was both relaxing and fun. We have declared any imperfections as added charm.

Then we decided to make matching travel mugs. The cool thing about those is we can interchange the liners anytime.
Michelle brought those cute little hangers and we decided to color them too. They are to be used to display a future project.

We are going to use the boxes to carry around our stitchery projects. I have to say there is nothing like relaxing and crafting with My Pal. She brought some yummy brownies and some nice gifts for Me and My little one. Time flies and before we knew it, it was time for her to head home.

Those are cute boxes and hold memories of a fun day with your friend. I think your first quilts are cute and you should display them proudly!
