Strawberries for Maggie

Okay, so it's not Spring anymore, but I went with the stamp anyways. :) This is a little strawberry garden that I made for one of my bestest friends, Mimi's daughter, Maggie. She just had a birthday, and loves to grow things, so I thought that she would like this.

The PP is from K&Company, and the stamp set is from PTI, as is the Egg Box. Ribbon is from May Arts, and I used my Marvy punches for the label. Rhinestones are from the $1 Store.

This is the inside of the box. (Sometimes I like to state the obvious. ;)) I covered the insert with some coordinating PP, but you can't really see that. Just know that it's prettier IRL. :)

Target had some little pots a month or so ago in their Dollar Spot that I had to grab up for this purpose. Well, they were a little too big for them all to fit in this box, so I grabbed up some smaller ones at Michael's to put the soil in.

The seed packets are underneath the pots and I included the directions for her in the gift bag that I decorated with the little strawberries and pretty ribbon. And lastly, to make sure she remembers what she planted, I added a little strawberry sign, made with a toothpick and two little 3/4 in. squares.

In quilting news, I finished my quilt top and now I just need to grab up some batting at the quilt store, and make my quilt sandwich! I'm really liking how it's turning out! I'll post a pic (or seven:)) when I finally get it finished.

And in conclusion, I would like to thank a few ladies who thought that this blog was worthy of an award. Thank you so much, and I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to post some of these!!!

Tammy, from Dream, Create, and Share, awarded me the Arte Y Pico. The badge is on my sidebar.

Chelle, from The Many Adventures of a Painter Girl, tagged me with this badge. I'll get to that one later...

Babs, from My Pink Pajamas...Late Night Stampin' and Scrappin', tagged me with the same above badge.

Katie, from Just Me, tagged me with this badge (below).

Thanks again, Ladies, for thinking of me with these tags! I'll have to think up some more for the 7 weird facts one, since I've done it a few times already. I'm not sure that there's THAT much weird about me! (Wait a minute... who have you girls been talking to??? ;))

Well, my friends, that's about it for today. I'll post some more CHA pix soon!

xox, Kirsten
