Happy Monday! I hope all you fantabulous readers are having a wonderful beginning to a new week. Normally I hate Monday's because that means the hubby goes back to school all day for the rest of the week but this morning I woke up very happy! I hope you aall had the same morning and if not I hope this adorable idea will brighten up your day!
So yesterday my wonderful hubby let me have a few hours to myself as a sort of break after re-adjusting this past week to him being gone all day again. (He has been home for 5 months so it is definitly a re-adjustment!) I decided to shop my facvorite store JoAnns. Now let me tell all you non-Californians, I am so jealous! As much as I love JoAnns I wish we had a hobby lobby! I can only hope that all goes according to plan and in 5 years we will be in Colorado so I can finally have my Hobby Lobby to shop at! Ok, back to business, while browsing I found this adorable jewelry box for 2.99. The only problem was it had mesh on the top and as I was standing there an idea popped into my head! I could make the munchkin a bug box. Not just any bug box, but a doodle bug box. When my younger sister was little she had a bug box that she carried everywhere. Now her nickname was Doodle (don't know why) and I still call her that to this day which of course she hates being a 17 year old. So we would call her box the Doodle Bug Box. Then I thought what about making the munchkin a doodle bug box just like her Auntie. So I grabbed the box, some adorable butterfly paper and was off all for under 4.00!
