S'more Please

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you are staying cool as so many are in some hot areas. We get hot, then cool down 20 to 25 degrees. So I can't complain! Plus it is nice to not have the AC running 24/7 all summer long. Of course I guess it isn't quite summer yet. My back is doing much better and I'm back to mowing the grass...slowly. With the cost of gas, I needed to be back at it as Bret is three towns (20 min) over from me so it was a lot of running on him. Although he is in town often, still made me feel guilty with all the running he was doing. But so thankful for him!

I have a birthday gift that I made to share today. My late husband's cousin loves chocolate and I do mean LOVES chocolate! She also loves S'mores. So I made her a caddy to carry her "supplies" out to the fire pit. I did a stencil with my Cricut and painted it on, then sanded to distress it as you know it will get bunged up and dirty as it is toted around. So I thought it would be better distressed as you wouldn't notice as much. I tucked in all the S'mores makings, extra chocolate because she babysits Monday through Friday and could use some chocolate on some challenging days, some cute kitchen towels and a red/white and blue beaded garland. It was well received thankfully!

Here is the front side with her name on it. Filled of course.

                      Other side of the tote/tool box.          

Each side looks like this. 

As always thank you for stopping by to visit with me for a spell because I know how busy everyone is. I always enjoy your company as you always bring much joy and sunshine to my life. If I haven't been by to visit, I will be soon. 

Crafty Hugs,
