I have been back and forth today from working on more ornaments...to laundry....to baking...I guess you could call it "multi-tasking"....I never get bored just doing one thing! It's been dismal...foggy...and misty outside...but I see the sun trying to peek through the clouds...I did have to take a quick break and run to get (still) more boxes for the little ornaments...but I wanted something a little bigger than a matchbox....finally I spotted them!!! Raisin boxes!!!! they work perfect!
