DIY: Style Watch: Coffee Shop In a Box

June 23, 2013

Handcrafted Coffee Shop in a Box | Damask Love BlovIf you know me, you know that I have no business sipping a cup of coffee. Me drinking coffee is like giving a six-pack of Red Bull to the Tazmanian Devil. I’m already a pretty energetic person. No coffee needed.

I’ve had three cups of coffee in my entire life – and I downed all three of them in one night, while cramming for my biology final during my senior year in college. I made it through the final…and then couldn’t sleep for two more days. After that, I decided that I had to end my relationship with coffee.

I do realize that the majority of the human world drinks coffee. I mean…you can’t sneeze without hitting a Starbucks…and with that in mind, I put together today’s Style Watch post.

It’s been way to long since I did an “in a box” project – so today I’ve  taken all the charm of a coffee shop and assembled it into a gift package that features lots of goodies from Clear & Simple Stamps Collection 7.

  2. I am a coffee addict and I can tell you that I would LOVE to receive a box like that…. I also know a couple of friends that could be very happy if I make one for them… Wonderful idea!!!!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Your “In a box” projects are so fabulous and inspiring… and you’re not even a coffee drinker! Love your great energy! (PS– Last summer, there was a profile of Elizabeth Warren in the New Yorker. Like you, she also doesn’t do coffee: she was quoted as saying (something like) she’d had half a cup of coffee 20 years ago and she was still buzzing from it!)

  4. I’m not a coffee drinker either, but wow…some great projects. I have a lot of coffee drinking friends who would love these…better get working on that!

  5. Terrific gift set, love that pretty green with the neutrals! The projects are amazing! I’m coffee drinker but just one in the morning (and an occasional second *wink)!

  6. I hear you about the coffee. Caffeine does not agree with me at all. But I do LOVE the occassional latte or cappuccino (addicted to pumpkin spice!), so I just order decaf.
    Coffee does make a great gift though, especially for those you know are addicts!, so thanks for the inspiration.
