"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

The Christmas Flower Painted Ornament

The Christmas Flower Painted Ornament

"Every year I paint a special, unique ornament for each member of my family. I never do the same one twice. I also paint one for the ornament exchange at our church. This was my ornament for last years contest, and ironically, my mom won it! This ornament is one of my favorites that I have painted. It is an exciting part of my year when I lock myself in my room every day for weeks, turn on the Christmas music, and start my ornament painting! Now, my ornaments are the first ones we put on the tree every Christmas."

This is beautiful. I have a friend who is a fabulous painter - she uses photographs to paint clients' pets and homes on glass ornaments. It's just a beautiful thing to do.

I love it! What a wonderful tradition you have! Do you take orders?

Very elegant!

Beautifully done!

This is beautiful! I love it!

For some reason they did not include my photo of the back of the ornament. So here it is.

Wow! Very impressive! This must have taken a lot of time and patience. Excellent job!

I totally adore your ornament. You are so talented!
