Cute curvy keepsake box

Hi all!  Pardon my silence...I've been off the grid and enjoying some great family time :)  I did however manage to create this cute little Curvy Keepsake box while getting some R&R.  I LOVE this new frame lit!  It's an adorable little box, and I placed the plumeria next to it so you have a sense of the size.  It's great to hold some sweet treats or fun trinkets.  The packaging alone will bring a smile to someone's face.  Here's another look:
This sweet purse box is from the Stampin'Up! Holiday Catalog.  Here's more info for you:

Hope you liked this little project!  Let me leave you with a pic of one of the sunsets we saw the other day.  So beautiful! 
Aloha for now!

Happy September!

Hi all! Can you believe it's already September?!  Things have been pretty hectic on the home and work front for me, but in a good way.  Alas, my blog suffered as a result.  Lots of stuff going on at the Diehl household.  For the last month or so, it's been a combination of home improvement projects and general work business.  But, August was also a momentous month for our little man.  He started Pre-School!  Time has been going by quickly here, so while it may have seemed quite here on my blog, it has been quite a busy time in the background.

Now, let me share a few things:

First of all, one of the home improvements that has been a work in progress has been my craft studio. Here's a glimpse of my new storage holders from Stamp-n-Storage - I love the stamp pad holder and my new punch holder, too! They fit the Stampin' Up! stamp pads and punches perfectly.

Here's a look at the full wall:

The room just got a fresh coat of paint, too! It went from an egg shell color to this new Lemon Sorbet color, which I just love!

Here's a closer look at my framelits and embossing folder holders, too.  LOVE these!

I'm so pleased with how my stamp room is coming along.  But I'm going to have to leave you hanging for the rest.  It's still a work in progress, so stay tuned!  I'll share the rest when it's ready for showtime! :)

In the meantime, here's my little guy on his first day of school:


This is a picture of a happy moment.  He was not the biggest fan leading up to this, but as you can see behind him, he found a new fun toy....numbers and pegs that he put together, in order, from 1-10!  This is his cute little proud face.  I love him!

And lastly, here's a pic from our weekend at the beach...such a beautiful way to spend Labor Day!
The weather was gorgeous and the day was fabulous!


Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  I'm looking forward to reconnecting with you all this month and share more of the goings on in my life and of course, more crafting, which just has a way of sprinkling a little bit of happiness on everything ;)

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
