I'm losing my mind

I remember posting this, but I don't know where it went, so here it is again. I heard the other day that my Merry Unbirthday Cake Box partner received her cake, so here's what I sent to her:
 I had the hardest time figuring out what I was going to do with the box. I started out by painting it white and then covering it with green tissue paper. For the top I painted some dragonfly buttons with alcohol inks, and because my partner said she liked flowers, I covered it with flowers. There are tons of different flowers on her, paper, fabric, buttons, gems. I layered them with pretty much anything flower shaped.
Here's the side:
 I traced the line of where the lid would rest and then added three lines of trim with gems adorning them.

Here's what I sent inside the box:
She said she liked flowers, so I got her some flower pins, a present topper, and a magnet flower. She also said she liked whimsical doo dads, I wasn't entirely sure how to interpret that, I got her some F tags (her name is Fran), some ribbon, gems, and canvas tags.

Let's hope this one doesn't get lost. To see what I got from here, go here.

Last week

On our way home from Chicago, we stopped off at a Hobby Lobby, but unlike some other stores I feel all Hobby Lobby's have the same stuf...
