RAK from Lexy, Another Use for Papertrey Boxes, and Bellas for Sale

Wow, that's a long title! I just thought I'd make sure to grab your attention whatever your interest. ;) First up is the birthday card my friend Lexy sent to my son whose birthday is tomorrow. I can't believe he's going to be two! Where has the time gone? He's so much fun to play with now, saying new words every day and even stringing two and three words together at a time! I guess I really need to watch what I say now. LOL I'm not sure if Lexy meant for these to be gift boxes but I love the shape of them. When my son saw the card, he smiled and called them buckets because he loves playing with his, whether on dry land or in the water. Thanks so much, Lexy!

I mentioned in this post that I found the Papertrey Ink packing boxes perfect for storing Unity's Kits of the Month. Today I discovered another use for them: storing my Copic Refills! The refills fit perfectly so now I can find them when I need them and they won't fall over and get lost. You'll have to excuse the dust. I'm not much of a housekeeper. I'd much prefer to stamp. :Þ I have a pile of these boxes and refuse to throw them out. They don't appear to be recyclable which really irks me, especially since they're probably the reason why shipping costs so much to those outside of the U.S. This is why I've kept them and need to find new uses for them since they literally cost me a fortune! Insert eye roll here.

Last but not least, I've added five Stamping Bella stamps to my For Sale page. Stamping Bella was my first love when I seriously started stamping but some of these haven't seen ink more than a year. I really doubt I'd ever use them again and they deserve to be loved!

Thanks to everyone who left lovely comments this week! It makes me so happy to see your comments arrive in my inbox every day. I promise to find some time soon to visit your blogs in return. Have a wonderful evening! I'm off to enjoy a cranberry martini and watch some TV. See you tomorrow for a Pink Cat Studio digi release!! :)

Smart use for those boxes! I don't have any copic refills, but I'm sure gonna try out storing my Unity in 'em!

what a great idea to reuse pti packing box for the copic refills. I hope I didn't throw away the boxes. I only have two refills now, but can't wait to store mine like yours.
