has the tooth fairy come?

Although my kids are grown now I have great memories of when they lost their teeth and would wait for the tooth fairy to come. While I did a great job of making sure she came when my oldest two were little the tooth fairy was a little more forgetful when it came to Kyler loosing teeth. Here is something that would have totally made it so much easier! I made this tin for my friends little boy who is in 1st grade and has (or had...he may have lost it already) his first loose tooth. Isn't it cute? Inside will be some cotton on the bottom for the tooth/money to lay and then I think I'm going to try and put a small piece of lined paper on the inside top of the tin so that the dates of when the tooth was lost can be written down and, hopefully, never forgotten.

So, anyway, I used Melanie Muenchinger's What's in your tin? 1 to stamp the top part of this tin. The paper is from DCWV and the ribbon is from a ribbon share I was part of quite awhile back. There are several fun "sentiments" in both What's in your tin? 1 and What's in your tin? 2. As a matter of fact set 2 has a stamp that says "Survival Kit. In Case of Emergency Open Me." I'm going to use that to make a get well tin for my grandpa. I found a great website that lists lots of "survival kits" that you can make by just adding a couple of things from the list and then typing out the meaning of each item, packaging in a fun way, and then giving to the bride, mom-to-be, skier, chef, get well, etc, etc, etc...I told you there were lots of them! I may find something to make for my grandpa's wife to as I'm sure this whole ordeal is taking quite a toll on her too.

Well, I hope you all have a great Sunday! It is supposed to be cloudy here today BUT up to 70 degrees and virtually no wind so it will be a GREAT day! After church and Todd getting up we plan on going and getting 13 rose plants and planting them in our new rose garden. I'm so excited! Girl Giving RoseHave a great day!

This box is just the best ever. I got a chuckle out of it. If I were the tooth fairy I would hve to be quiet so as to not wake anyone up with my laughter. This is adorable.
