Peanuts...Costco Sized!

If you don't live in the states, Costco is a warehouse type of shopping store where you tend to have to buy in bulk - or, very large sizes! Somehow, a bag of peanuts that you have to shell made their way home with me. I was convinced that the kids would just love sitting there and cracking them open, munching on them as an afternoon snack. After all, as a young adult, I loved sitting in "establishments" where I could do that and throw the shells on the floor!

Long story short - I still have lots and lots of peanuts. So, I turned to Tracy Harp's animal cracker box tutorial ... I couldn't wait to use my little squirrel again from The Angel Company's August Stamp of the Month.

Don't gnash your teeth if you missed buying this really cute set - I found that you can still buy it online! That means I can order it for you if you missed out, just email me!

And I just love how great this big, blue eyelet looks on the's from the Mia's Cottage Hardware collection. And the felt flower comes from the In Bloom Buttons and Blossoms collection ... all from The Angel Company.

I think I may just send this little box in with my hubby to work...I hope it'll put a smile on his face. Probably he'll just think I'm strange! Have a great day - it's the middle of the week!!
