Chocolate Anyone?


My husband lost his job a little over a month ago and for the first few days it was nice...Then a few weeks went by and I realized that WE REALLY don't get along that well when we're together 24/7 lol! Since it's been a little tense in the house we currently live in I decided that I would make him something to let him know that he still means a lot to me. This candy box is just a 4 oz metal tin that I bought from specialty bottle. I covered it with paper from SU's retired enchante line. The heart stamp is from papertrey's sweet love set. I added the brad (su's build a brad) to give it a little "umph"...lol..I guess I can be honest..I was trying to use my adhesive eraser but instead ended up taking a big chunk of paper off and needed to hide it :) The ribbon is mellow moss taffeta.

That ribbon looks silver! It's gorgeous. I can relate - My fiance and I are both home together all day every day and let me tell you - there are days when I just need to get away for a few hours :D

I always look so forward to vacations and holidays when Hubby has time off...after the first few days it gets.....interesting...by the last few days I am SO ready for things to go back to normal;) I like having "my" house to myself sometimes:)
