making the world more beautiful one tissue box at a time
My latest project tasteful tissue box covers. No, there is a really no room in my schedule for a new project, but my child life recertification professional development hours (50 hours every five years) are due next month. So I'm wrapping up by listening to an entire conference on children's play. So why am listening to thoughtful discussion in this on the future of children's play or the role of creativity in children's outcomes I need a project to keep my hands busy productive. You should know me well enough to know-- It's all about the multitasking,baby. (Which I am doing at present feeding my baby and dictating this blog entry with my voice recognition software Mother's Day gift. It works so well). I have always despised the ugliness of tissue boxes. I know, I know the solution is simple. Go buy a tissue box cover-- trouble is it's very hard to find covers in a large rectangle shape and I for one refuse to resign myself to buying the more expensive square boxes of Kleenex . So after looking long and hard. I was able to find these inexpensive, plain tissue box covers that cover the big family sized boxes I ordered them in bulk and I'm working on them for all the rooms in our house with Kleenex boxes (and if you're on my Christmas list watch out because some will be coming to you also). They are perfect for paint, decoupage, trim and other embellishment. I may start selling custom ones, as well because hey, I have found a great niche market, and world deserves, no the world needs better looking tissue boxes. Maybe my true calling is not in painting but in tissue box covers. so if you'd like cool plain or fancy Made to match tissue boxes covers you know who to call) What person could walk away from such an opportunity to make the world more beautiful. Especially the worlds of us too thrifty to buy the square boxes. No more ugly tissue boxes for this family, no sir!! I be sure to post the full cadre of when I am done!

As a mom busy growing up 3 little boys, I want to teach them to be smart! And by that I mean to think, to make wise choices, to care about the important things, to help make the world better, and use up their lives on the things that really matter.
