I had to take the picture like this because when I stand the boxes up, they lean. It's as if they are mocking me for even attempting to craft!

Valentines Day Craft
Those who know me well know that crafting is not my thing. God did not bless me with the ability to craft. Whenever I see cute crafts on TV, in magazines, or on blogs, my first thought is usually "I wonder where I can buy something like that?" But, for some reason, when I saw this blog post last week, I had the crazy thought that I could actually do it. I don't know what possessed me to think that. I guess I just thought they were cute and looked easy. So other day I went and bought the supplies I didn't have on hand (which turned out to be everything but the glue gun!). Today I located my glue gun (it took me awhile to find it!), and decided to give the boxes a try. I wasn't surprised when it turned out to be harder than it looked. It took me about an hour to make two boxes, but I did it! And with minimal burns to my fingers. I didn't go all out like the blogger did; the hearts are from some leftover felt I had from my last crafting project...over a year ago! That's about as fancy as I got. I was satisfied that I was able to make the boxes. I didn't want to push my luck!
