Here We Go Again...

I am ready to re-start my blog.  A ton has changed since 2009.  I would like to start my blog again, but I do not want to limit it to just the Cricut  and paper crafting, so I am going to combine my other blog with this one.  This post and the next few posts will be the transferred posts from my other blog.

Hello Fellow Pinners and Crafters!  My first Pinterest Project is complete!  I created the ever so popular Teacher Toolbox.  Here is the  Pin  that inspired my creation. If you do a search on Pinterest for "Teacher Toolbox"  you will find several for Pinspiration.  

 I bought my box at Home Depot; it was around $17.  Since I have a little baby and I am all about the shortcuts, I decided not to repaint it like many people chose to do.  Plus I actually like grey. 

So here is a look at the front.

 I added some cheap vinyl decals that I bought at JoAnns last year on clearance.   I was going to use my Cricut, but I am trying to use the stuff I buy and hoard.

I created custom labels using Microsoft Word.  There are so many creative crafters out there that have labels  on their blogs as freebies and on Teachers pay Teachers but none of them matched what I wanted.

If I was to make another one...which I am not...but if I did I would try to match up the colors with decals.
