12 Days of Christmas--Day 7

I am about twelve hours late on this post--but I told myself it was okay.  I got so many sweet comments and well wishes when I told you I was tired--thank you.  I have worked on 12 pieces of furniture this past week--all special orders and had waxed 9 of them on Wednesday, plus built 2 sofa tables.  I was happy to get so much accomplished, but wiped out.  A good night's sleep, a little quiet time Thursday morning and I was good to go.  I had to move my building and painting to the garage as it snowed and we are expecting more and below zero temps.  I love being able to work in the fresh outdoors with natural light, but thankful to have a garage to work in too.  Okay, enough about me--here is your "gift" for the day:

On the seventh day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave to me, a little crate that is sweet like candy.
Now lest you think I have started dovetailing my boxes, I have not.  This was rescued from the high school shop class bonfire pile (the rejected projects get saved for a bonfire).  Unfortunately, they were not able to have their usual homecoming bonfire because of a burn ban.  Luckily for me, I was able to rescue a few things, three of which were boxes that the kids had practiced dovetails on.  These "boxes" were just four sides, no top or bottom to them.  I used pallet wood to make a crate bottom.
I came up with this fun company name and tagline on my own and hand painted it on the box, after designing and printing it.  I rubbed chalk on the back of the paper to transfer it on the red paint.
I added my usual belt handles
to complete this fun box.
Now it is your turn to link up your Christmas ideas.  This linky party will remain open through Christmas.  I will be sharing it every day of my 12 Days of Christmas.  There will be no 12 days of Christmas posts on Sundays or Wednesdays, I will share my regular Sunday Verses and linky party on those days.  Please read the linky party rules, thanks!
