2015 Memory Box



2014 has come to an end and it's time for a fresh start.  This is the perfect time to make new goals, memories, and resolutions.  In July of 2014,  I started this blog on a whim and wasn't sure whether or not I would stick with it long term.  It's easy to start a project: as all of us know, it's even easier to give up and quit.  Don't get me wrong, I sometimes find myself tired of trying to edit the perfect photo or write the perfect sentence and want to throw my computer at the wall.  But you know what I'm not going to quit this blog... not this year anyway;)  Blogging gives me something to look forward to and it allows me to learn new things like HTML coding and how to paint furniture.  Even if I feel like nobody is reading I must push on... My new years resolution is to continue to grow TexMex Crafting.  I want to become more social, gain more readers, and most importantly write better content.  I hope you continue this journey with me or at least send me some good vibes.

Now on to this weeks project.  I have an awful memory and I forget things a lot.  I started having to write down notes in my phone to remind me of project ideas or the books I want to read.  While going through pintrest I saw the idea of making a memory box.  This memory box will be dedicated to me and Matt's events/memories of 2015.  We can stick movie stubs from date nights, cork screws from dinners, or even notes to one another.  On New Years Day 2016 we plan to open this box to look back on all the fun memories/events that happened over the year.





I used an old birchbox and scrapbook paper to create this. 



Sealed till next year with washi tape.


Hope that 2015 brings you love, laughter, and many happy memories!
