Welcome to the Thinking Outside the Box Design Team Blog Hop!  Whether this is your first stop, or you have just joined from the amazingly talented, Sharlene's Blog, I am so excited to have you stop by!  This Month our theme is Basket with Handle!  I will admit, I did not have a lot of time to put together an off the charts amazing project–I am right in the middle of completely redoing my office! So, about 3/4 of my office is already gone and literally as soon as I finish this post, the rest will be gone and the new office will start to be installed!  It is a JOB! WOW!  I had no idea how much stuff I have accumulated over the last 19 years!!
