Nugget Box

These are just the cutest things ever! I did make this one but cannot take credit for it, I will list the responsible parities in a bit. Mike's aunt is turning 90 in a few weeks and I think I will make these little cuties for party favors! I can think of so many different excuses to make them. Showers, Valentine's Day, birthdays and just for the heck of it. Original design came from a Stampin Up consultant named June. I do need to send her a comment & thank her for her creative geniusness (that's not a word is it??). Carlene saw it and sent it to Darlene who then sent it to me. I then sent it to Cheryl who created a cut file for the Cricut & sent it back to me. I however, get ALL the credit for copying it! I am so thankful for friends.

You open it up and have 6 Hershey's nuggets inside! I think I am going to add something to the inside lid to personalize them for Jeannie's birthday. I also, haven't decided on the color scheme. I used what I had on hand for this one & kinda like it. It's the little things that get me so excited!!

The gratitude dance

This is the video that got us started with the attitude of gratitude. You can't help but smile after doing it! It's not bad exercise either! Give it a try - you might get hooked!

I have made a conscious effort this week to find things to be grateful for. They are everywhere! When I concentrate on all I am grateful for, I don't think about the negative stuff. Life is so much more enjoyable with an attitude of gratitude!
