Every time my family goes to the eye doctor we complain about the smell. Now that is not a statement usually associated with eye doctors, true. However, our eye doctor is right next door to a store that sells cigars and allows patrons to smoke in said store. Not being a smoking family we find the smell quite overpowering and offensive. That cigar smell permeates the very walls of the place. UCK.
Well, today I had to run to the eye doctors to pick up kid 1 glasses. Mentally preparing myself I held my breathe and walked past the cigar store and into the office. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed the cigar store door was being held open by a nice looking cigar box.
Hmm…as I picked up kid 1 glasses I kept thinking. Man. What a great box and they are using it to prop open a door. Hmmm…
Now I am an extremely shy person. (Just ask my social butterfly kid and hubby) So for the next step you should be impressed! I walked into that very manly stinky store and asked if they had any cigar boxes that they didn’t want. (How brave of me, eh?) Lo and behold there were 2, yes 2!!, cardboard boxes of empty cigar boxes they were going to throw away!! He said I could just take them both. So…Lookee Here!
This is what is left after kid1 and kid2 took the boxes they wanted. 16 wonderful boxes!! All are made of wood and smell wood-like. I am giddy with excitement. I know I can use them for something super duper cool!
So I am asking all of you crafty bloggy people…What would YOU do with all these great boxes??
