Blogiversary Giveaway #2: Cigar Box Full of Goodies to Alter It With

Anniversary Banner-001

Don't forget I have a giveaway from My Memories Suite going here.  

This giveaway is sponsored by : ME. My readers know that I love to alter things. I'm also really lucky to have a husband who gets that, and does things like bring  home cigar boxes for me to play with. I have seen them for sale at up to 10 times what he's gotten them for. SO ...I want to give one away to one lucky reader. 

I think I read somewhere( or just made up in my head) that it's bad luck to give away an empty box. What fun would it be to have a cigar box to alter without anything to alter it with anyway?  One reader will get a box filled with some of my favorite goodies to play with. Want to see? 


There are rub-ons and embellishments and washi tape oh my! Couldn't resist including a mini paper mache dress form too. 


Here's the top of the box (some places I've found cigar boxes rip off the lid but this lid is fully in tact which makes this a great place to store bits and pieces) You can use as is, cover it, or incorporate the design into your altered vision. 


And the box itself is a nice cedar ( I think ..but it's some kind of wood!). So in keeping with my history of "craftsplaining" um no, I don't smoke cigars but I sure do love the boxes they come in! Who wants it? (Gonna have to limit this to US only because ....postage)

Happy Blogiversery. I am a whopper fan. I love that malted milk flavor. Sometimes I even buy the malted milk powder for drink mixes.

Milk Duds just haven't lived up to the way I remember them from childhood, so I'm going to have to go with Whoppers - especially in a milkshake!

Me, me, me! I want to win this :)
I prefer milk duds because of the ooey gooey caramel middle. Not a fan of malt flavoring at all. Hugs,
