Recycled Treasure Box

How was your weekend? Did you try out the sexy, smoky eye for a hot date Saturday night?

I loved my weekend. Friday night was a Relief Society Retreat at a ginormous mountain house in Dillon. (For the uninitiated, Relief Society is the name of the womens organization at my church.) During the retreat, we played a game where everyone writes a true, interesting story about themselves (one example was, "I won $6000 in Las Vegas from a slot machine."). Then, 3 people sit at the front of the room. One of the statements is read (the statement is true for one of the 3 people at the front, but the other two have never heard it before). Then the audience gets to ask questions of the 3 people to try to determine who this event really happened to. One person answers the questions truthfully, and the other two have to make up their stories on the spot.

Personal discovery: turns out I'm a really good liar.

Another fun thing from the weekend. This rad box (pictured at top) made from old rulers came in the mail. It's maybe the coolest office accessory ever. It was an unexpected gift from our friends, the Rathers (pictured here when they stopped by last month for an afternoon visit — they were driving home from a Rocky Mountain vacation to their home in Kansas).

We love the Rathers! They were some of our closest friends in New York before we both moved. We love their 6 beautiful boys. And we loved getting to spend a couple of hours with them — we only wished it was longer. Thank you, for the fun gift, Rathers!

Love that box! Is this something they made or bought? If bought, where did they buy it? If they made it, is it possible to get a how to?

Does the box smell like old rulers? Weird question, I know, but when I saw the box I got a scent in my head from when I was little. Love it!
