All boxed in and loving it

Hello! Welcome to my blog! Today I have been cleaning and fixing up a new tabletop flat drawer box I got at an estate sale yesterday. I put it in my craft room and filled it full of goodies--one drawer for stamps I am currently playing with, one drawer for Ancient Page ink pads (my favorite!) and one for Tombow markers, also one of my favorites. I put the box onto one of the tops of my L-shaped desks for easy access.
I can't resist boxes! No matter what the size, the possibilities of what they can hold sets my mind reeling. I hold on to tiny gift/jewelry boxes forever, thinking of what I can do with them. If a gadget or toy is packaged in an interesting box, I'm going to buy it! Of course, I'll even buy decorative boxes empty, especially nesting boxes. I even enjoy making boxes--here is a picture of one I made several years ago, filled with--you guessed it--buttons!
Well, I'm having trouble getting the picture up. I'll put it in the next post.
