I love your idea of keeping collected quotes on cards! Sure beats my c:my documents\quotes file where I have been recording the quotes that I have collected! I will add the proverb that you quoted - it's lovely. One of my favorites is by John Lennon: Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.


Carrie, I've been collecting quotes for years. Probably started back in high school days. I've written them all down in a journal. I love to go through and read the words of wisdom. Sometimes I include them in a letter to a friend, or as a word of encouragement to someone going through a hard time. They are precious and special words. Thanks for sharing your "box" idea.

You are amazingly creative! This would make a great gift for my 'word loving' friend. Thank you for the inspiration.


Love it!!!! Perfect!

What a wonderful idea. Your creativity is leaving quite an impression on me. Thank you for sharing these wonderful thoughts.


This is such a wonderful idea and so attractive as well.


OMG, this is so awesome! I've finally found another quote collector!!! This is such a great idea too. For years I've been collecting quotes in a Moleskine notebook tucked away in my bag. This is such a fun way to put them in full view. Love this!


I LOVE this idea. I am definitely going to be "borrowing" this......thanx for sharing.


Fantastic idea! I saw those berry baskets in Anthro and was wondering what use I could put one to. I will have to "borrow" your idea.


Your handwriting is wonderful. Better than any computer generated printing. You could box those up and sell them...although writer's cramp might be a real possibility! There you go, another business idea...handprint one set and then copy the other sets at a print shop, cool container; and you could charge as much as the wooden boxes! Love the quote idea. I've always loved them but could never seem to recall the right one when I wanted to.


I love quotes, also. I had been saving them for years on odd bits of paper. A couple of years ago I invested in a nice red leather journal and have slowly been writing them in there. I have been trying to group them by topic, which isn't always easy. I do not like my handwriting, especially my printing which is how I want to write them, so that takes a little bit of the pleasure out of the process. Your handwriting is wonderful.
I like your idea also, they are more accessible this way.

I love your quotation boxes! I love quotations but I never write them down and therefore never remember them. Shame on me! I went to the website but they are no longer selling the 365 Gathered Truths. I will have to make 2012 a year to write things down to remember!


I love your market basket quotes...I really love the Sanskrit quote! I needed that today...thank you!


What a cool idea Carrie. I have a journal to keep all my little bits of wisdom in but I must admit the icing on the cake is your writing, its is so cool.

What a cool idea! I have slips of paper all over my work surface, and bulletin board. Some are written in my 'commonplace' book, but they don't see the light of day very often. Your handwriting, and the variation in the way that you are writing is divine. Love it!

Carrie, this is a fantastic idea. I have a stash of these on scraps, emails, and yes, on Pinterest. I love the way you did this. I'll have to search for the perfect box.

You have such beautiful script that the quotes look fabulous. I love your box-
I have a note that came in a giveaway prize package from you that I kept- just because I admired your beautiful script.
Thanks for the inspiration.


I love this! I'm going to start looking for an appropriately decorative yet useful box...

Mary Ann

Oh my once again you have added to my project list, in a very good way. Now to find the perfect "box"
