A few altered items for my niece!

Here are a few little altered items I made for my niece. I was going to give them to her for Valentines Day, but didn't get them ready in time. I am also going to cover a journal and a clipboard for her too! But that's another day!

The mailbox is from Target of course, and the other container is from a Krista Light container I think. (This one is for her pens/pencils!) I used DCWV Pocket Full of Posies paper for both of these. (BTW, has anyone seen the new DCWN Blossoms and Butterflies line?? SO CUTE-gotta have it!) They already had glitter on them, but I did add quite a bit of Stickles! The ribbon I used is great, isn't it? It is some sort of specialty ribbon that was sold at Target, but I got it at our ribbon outlet at a Christmas sale and got it for a penny!! ONE CENT! (I also got it in orange and purple!) On the side of the mail box I put her name in chipboard and added some bling! The flowers were Primas and some flowers from a $1 bag at Michaels! The bling is from Walmart! The whole pack was $2! The only thing I need to do is tie ribbon around the flag, but I have SO much ribbon I just couldn't bear to look through it! Maybe later! Sorry for the bad pics, it is just so dark in here today. I honestly took 20-30 pictures of both of these and this was the only one that worked. Do you think a girly little 6 year old will like these for her new "adult" desk?!
I've had another sick, sick week. One day I even had to have my grandma to take Aaron for the day because I couldn't even pick him up. And if you know me, you know I NEVER ask anyone to watch him, because I'm selfish and don't like to share him! :) I am feeling ok so far today. Unloaded the dishwasher and swept the kitchen and dining room before 6am! Later on Aaron and I will be making maracas out of water bottles with macaroni noodles and buttons and such! I need to start his crafting now while he is still young!! May even drive to Michaels or ACMoore later. I haven't left the house for more than a week. So maybe I will have something new to show you tomorrow-even if it is water bottle maracas! Have a great day! :)
