Case Study 121 - Goodwill

 I don't know about you but these holidays are a real work out!   We are still in the middle of so many home renovations and we keep getting side tracked.  I just convinced my hubby it would be cheaper to buy more of those stackable wood storage crates from Michael's to add to my craft room vs. building something from scratch.  Boxes purchased... by oh my goodness... the assembly!  Probably takes just as long as building it yourself - upside is that everything is cut and ready to be screwed in place.  If you could see my desk... I mean if I could see my desk.  It is a mountain of all sorts of things that I will sort out once we get all these boxes slapped together :) 
Well today I have a sweet treat... more CASE Study goodness from our December muse  .... Windy Robinson from the Ribbon and Bling Blog!  You know I love a big fancy bow and some bling - what's not to love here for a fussy girl like me?  I added some shimmery pine cones and moved things around a bit but I stuck with the red, green and white color scheme , and of course the bow and gems.  This one was really fun and is all dressed up ready for the giving!
If you'd like to see what the rest of the CASE Design Team came up with just click on their names..

When I saw Windy's inspiration card, I knew that you'd be having fun!!! Your card is so much blingy fun! That bow with the silvery things is GORGEOUS! (I stared at that first picture for at least a minute drooling over them:) Hope you're having a great week!
