Love Letter Mailbox by Jing-Jing


I got this little red mailbox from Target many moons ago and finally I have found the most perfect Valentine's collection: sweet cake that match the red exactly. This will make a sweet little gift for someone, so I thought.

 Of course, one never has any peace while working on important projects.  Second Born just couldn't stay in her room long enough to let me finish my work.  She kept on coming over and playing with my box of Doodlebug sweet collection. Not that I can blame her, the colors are so vibrant and design completely adorable.  I tried to pacify her by offering up several pieces of scraps which she gladly accepted, nothing bigger than 2x2 inches of course! However, she continue to linger and pester me to find out who is getting this little mailbox.  Finally in exasperation, I told her that she can have it if only she would just leave me to finish it!  She squealed with delight and immediately returned the scraps I gave her earlier back to me.  "Now that I'm getting the mailbox, you can have these back!" LOL.  So much for making a gift for someone else, I guess this one is going to Second Child's room!  :)
Supply list:  Boutique buttons: cupcake assortment; Sweet cake collection: heart to heart, lots of love, baby cakes, cute cuts, fancy frills; Doodle twine: valentines assortment; Doodle-pops: baby cake

  24. This is just so super sweet! I love your story about trying to create it and having to bribe your DD to have enough peace to complete it! I'm sure it was finished with extra love added! I'm following your blog and left some love for you there (oddly from my #1 DD who I bribed with "maybe I can win this awesome collection you're drooling over if you leave me alone so I can write a comment!"LOL!!!!) Kids! Life would certainly be dull without them!!! TFS! rgauss at sbcglobal dot net.
