🎶What Are You Doing New Years Eve?🎶

Twenty-seven years ago Chris and I had our first real date on New Years Eve. Somebody we knew had a party at the old Hotel Bentley in downtown Alexandria. Quite a few glasses of  champagne and a New Years Eve kiss and the rest is history! It’s been a long time since we celebrated New Years Eve outside our cozy little house. We’ve done the crazy partying…I’m just fine with some home cooking, a nice glass of wine or some egg nog, and a little guitar and ukulele around the fire pit. I may even dress for the occasion, but barefoot if it’s warm and comfy slippers if it’s cold. You never know what this crazy Louisiana weather will do!

I don’t have to decorate much for New Years Eve since I usually leave my tree up until after New Year’s Day. It’s festive and I can really enjoy it after the hubbub of Christmas! I did make a little conversation piece this year…


This little magical folding box was inspired by a Club Scrap®  project from 2010, The Magician’s Box. I adapted it to create a mini version using the ATC sized Imagine Crafts SHEET metal, Staz On ink, and Club Scrap’s After Five unmounted stamp collection.

I should set up a camera to film the curious who open it and try to tie it back together! To be continued…

  1. What a fun project Wendy, sort of like an explosion box. I love them in any form. Thank you for sharing, I’m sure folks will have fun discovering how to open and put it back together.

    1. Thank you Ruby! I love them too, I just don’t always get around to decorating them. I am going to set it out and see what happens. I’m going to try to catch some of the reactions on video for another post. This should be fun!😜
