I altered this box for my niece, Mairen. Cute, yes?!
I absolutely HATE these alpha stickers (they were free with purchase one day at Archiver's). HATE them! LOL. I'm sorry... I do. Not sure why. I see them on lots of pages, so I know they're loved out there, but for some strange reason, they bug me.
But... they look SO cute on this box with these Basic Grey chip stickers! So... I'm glad I had them in my stash.
Now... for the quick story behind said box.
My sister, Shaina, decided to ask her daughters about their favorite hobbies and/or sports. This is how the conversation went...
Shaina: "Girls, I want to ask you about your favorite hobbies and sports! Alaura, what hobby or sport do you like best?"
Alaura (age 7.5): "Art! Definitely art! I love art!"
Shaina: "Awesome! And Brenna, what's your favorite?"
Brenna (age 7.5): "Umm... running! And... swimming! Oh! And basketball! I love all those!"
Shaina: "All good sports! And Mairen, what is *your* favorite hobby or sport?!"
Mairen (age 4.5): "Collecting dirty toenails!!!"
Apparently she said this quite emphatically. I laughed SO hard when I heard this. My sister says she goes around the house picking up toenail clippings, and she puts them in one of her drawers. I asked my sister if she had a box in which to keep them, and it turns out, she doesn't. And of course...
... being me... working at The Container Store and all, I suggested I get her one. And do you know what my sister said?!
"Reyanna! Don't encourage this! It's gross!"
Tee hee. But being the cool and fun aunt that I am.... * insert devilish laugh here * ... I marched my butt over to The Container Store to find her a small box for said toenails. And I altered it for her using yellow, black and green... her favorite colors. :D The box is big enough for her to also store nail clippers and even nail polish should she so choose. :)
Mairen LOVES it. :D
My sister hopes it turns more into a pedicure kit... LOL. We shall see...
