Exploding Box...

I thought this was an interesting subject for a post. Don't worry we didn't have a box explode as far as I know. The kids are at home with my sweetie and who knows what's happening there.

I just wanted to share with you the coolest thing my friend Nikk made. The exploding box. Check it out here . It's a great "inexpensive" Christmas gift. You can purchase directions here Now isn't that the most adorable thing you've seen in awhile.

I have to tell you a little about my friend Nikkole. I went to high school with her. She was the one with the car we would all hitch a ride to lunch. {We had an open campus back in the olden days} Later, I stayed with her for a little while in San Diego and learned there were more independent options for me. {Sorry Nikk that I wasn't a better room mate for the 2 weeks I stayed with you} I've always felt bad about that.

I took my first road trip with her and thought about jumping out the window if I heard one more country song. I survived however and now force that music on my munchkins. That road trip changed my young life in so many ways.
I remember her fingernails were always beautifully painted. They {her fingers} were of course her tools she used to create art and an ARTIST she was. I can see even now how carefully she would use a pen to address a letter just PERFECTLY. It's been great to see her still able to continue to develop her artistic talent as she mothers and wifes. {You know what I meant, right?} So check out here stuff. It's awesome.

Thanks for the shout out for my project.
This was a very sweet tribute.
Those two weeks you stayed with me in San Diego are actually some of my more fond memories!!
You will ALWAYS be one of my dearest friends.
