Can't stop.....

I have been on a Valentine crafting frenzy...I can't stop! Then I can't decide...should I keep it, give it as a gift, sell it, have a giveaway?????? I just don't know?

I love nut cups! I was so inspired by the cover of Country Living this month and just loved the idea of the mercury glass beads that I had to try it....and I love the way they came out! I already have some vintage beads that I've used before but when I was taking the decorations off my Christmas tree this year, one of the strings of beads that I love so much got caught on something and the beads went everywhere! I was crushed! Right away my husband said in a panic "don't worry, I'll restring them for you!" Then I thought, the heck with it, I'll find something to make with them. Then came Country Living...

The nut cups I listed here because I know I can make many more...and more...
Also had some little boxes that I started covering with some scraps. They are so tiny and cute! For now I think I may use them as storage for some of my little buttons, beads, etc.




Now I have to get to real work...food shop, bank, cleaners..so exciting! I do have the parent project of the month this afternoon at my sons class. At least that will be fun!

Those little boxes are just precious! The mother of pearl buttons are perfect in them. Love the look.
