Mo's Challenge # 80


All Pink & Girly!

My daughter-in-law was so impressed with the Magic Box that I made for my granddaughter for her last birthday that she sold one to a customer at her store, sight-unseen! It is for a one year old girl's birthday, and the customer wanted a fairy theme.
I really don't like making them for sale because they are so labor-intensive and use a ton of materials, but she had already sold it, so I had to make it! Pricing something like this is difficult as there is no way I could make a profit on the time it took! No one would pay the that much! I'm just going to let my DIL set the price and then tell her NO MORE!


Anyway, here's the front view.


The back view...


The other two sides have flower clusters.



Here it is opened up.

The theme for this week is pink and girly...so easy for most!  I was never much of a fan of pink until our granddaughter was born.  Then for awhile I had pink on the brain, and there didn't seem to be any other color! Now I really like it, but still don't wear much pink.


I've used Mo's cute "Teacup Fairy" for my card. It's just such a sweet, whimsical image!
My mother used to collect teacups, and my younger sister got the lot of them when she passed. I appreciate the beauty in them, but my style is more towards the plain and simple look.
Give me a hand-made earthenware mug and I'm happy!

So, here's hoping this finds you in the pink, and that you're inspired to join us in Mo's Challenge this week, and show us your ultra-feminine side!

Love it when you stop by!
