girl boxmaker

I stumbled across Rae's blog awhile ago......girl boxmaker.....I think she left me a comment and I ALWAYS check out the blog a comment comes from...........hint hint......

She makes boxes. BOXES! She is a bona fide ( I had first spelled it bonafide......but one of my trusted regular readers has my back and set me straight...thank you!.........when is blogger going to get the spell check fixed?) artist with all kinds of papers.........and I don't mean patterned paper. I mean college type papers that say you spent a ton of money and learned a lot of cool stuff. Doesn't look like she wasted a bit of that dough. Amazing stuff.
Her blog is new and her etsy shop is new. Really, I'm not trying to hock goods........but so many of my featured bloggers have etsy shops and well?............they should. Seriously, if I could make something that someone would buy, I'd be opening up shop too. But don't worry.........My mojo is no where to be found........I really need to get scrapping again. And as much as you all would love to buy a layout with my son plastered all over.......some things are just not for sale. :)
But her nice little journal accordion books are...............This paper above looks like some of the paper that Melanie Gray sent me from Japan. Kimono Reincarnate.
She was a past feature.

Rae is the mother of 3 little darlings and has the most amazing sketches she did while they were sleeping........who needs a camera if you can draw like that? Speaking of a camera.......no, I'm not going to mention my fancypants camera again........even though I LOVE IT!........but her camera died recently and if we ever want to see another photo on her blog........we better buy some of those boxes. She didn't say that..........I did.One of the most fascinating things I learned, was HOW she makes these boxes. She did a little tutorial. mmmm, mmm.

Like I mentioned, Rae is new to the blogging world.........so go give her a big big bloggy hug. Tell her I said hi. :)
