OCC - Reuse your packaging Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to 'My Little Stampin' Spot! This week's challenge over at 'Our Creative Corner' is to reuse your packaging. Our hostess Rebecca Ednie - Eclectic Endeavors is challenging us to reuse your packaging! Use those boxes, cans, tins, bags, plastic clamshells or embellishment bubbles you might usually throw out to create a fabulous project! I gotta confess, it took me awhile to figure out what I was going to reuse. I have been trying to clean house and reduce my crafting supplies and I'm not very good at keeping a lot of extra 'things' around (you know the things I'm talking about, those things you look at and think 'someday I could use this for.....', things) so to come up with something to reuse was going to be tough! Lucky for me I still kept some metal containers and I also came across some of those sewing kits that you can pick up at hotels. This sewing kit just so happened to have a hard case that slid open and close with the name of the company on the front of it (boring!). So I decided to make my own traveling sewing kit, not that I do a lot of sewing, LOL. But you never know when you might need to sew a button or two back on. Here is what I came up with by reusing my leftover packaging! Hop on over to 'Our Creative Corner' to see what the rest of the design came up with!

This information has been forwarded to me, I thought I would share it with all of you in hopes to help make Max's wish of receiving 1 million cards come true. Please read his story and consider sending him a get well card.

Max Low is a 12 yr old from Neola, IA. He has been battling cancer for half of his life. His doctors recently told his parents to enjoy the time they have left with him. His wish is to get 1 million cards. If you would like to help Max get his wish, please send a get well card to the following address: 

Mighty Max Low,

Neola, IA 51559

This update on Max was posted on Facebook 3/9/11:


I wanted to update everyone on the most current update on Max Low - as of yesterday, he is still @ Childrens Hospital and will remain there until Max can get his white blood cell count up. Some time down the road will they proceed with the bone marrow transplant as long as his tests come back zero cancer cells - until then Max will remain in Childrens Hospital.In the last couple of weeks - Max has received over 600 cards from all over - It sure makes Max smile and gives him something to do and looks forward to opening his "FAN" Mail - Just to name one card Max received today is a card from President Bush Sr with a really nice note and well wishes !!!! How exciting that was for him - I thought how cool is that ... the President took time out of his day to read the story about Max and a little boy's wish to receive a Million cards and he wrote a note and mailed it to him - THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU and please keep them coming !!!! I know he enjoys reading all the well wishes, stories and everyday happenings instead of doing homework !!!! GOD BLESS you ALL and please keep the prayers coming and feel free to pass this info to your family & friends.
