The dreams box.

Hi there everyone! 
Yvonne here to share my altered cigar box for this months challenge or prompt. 
At first...I really had NO idea what I was going to do.
I mulled it over in my head and had several ideas after a bit, but decided to go with something totally different! hehehe. 
I wanted a box that I could use to put my hopes and dreams in.  
I've been reading and studying about making dreams come true..and one thing that I read over and over is to put it in writing...put it out in the universe.  
If you keep it all to yourself like a safely tucked away treasure, the universe doesn't hear that. 
So I am putting it out in the universe! wink. 
I think there is definitely something said to writing things down, it makes it more 'real' in a way...do you agree?   A lot of you know I am the 'PINK' girl..I love pink..it just makes my soul happy...my heart happy and it makes me feel almost giddy when I see it.  Might be strange...but I chalk it up to being a quirky girl! 
Anyway, I wanted the box to be something kind of romantic, something I could put in my bedroom on my nightstand.  I have a pretty shabby chic room...luckily hubby does not care! 
 I am doing a full post with a tutorial if you would like to join me over on my blog
We still have a bit of time for you to get yours in! I hope you will join in the fun...it only took me about 3 hours to do this one and I totally got lost in the process...it felt good to get lost in my art. 
If you want to see the tutorial click on over here
Thank you for stopping by today! 
Until next time!

    People tend to get caught up in the vision of what life would be if they had more of something, usually money, but they don't take action. Mindset is a huge component to achievement. Working towards building a better life for yourself while working a 9-5 will teach your time management, as well as stress management. You are doing more than one thing, and you will feel overwhelmed, but you will come out a stronger person with more confidence


  4. SO very pretty, and I love the texture on the top - I want to reach out and touch it!

  5. Gorgeous pink dream box! I love that lace!
