You remember this place. It's been so long since you were last here. But, the feeling is the same. That pull, that desire. All of a sudden you get the urge to do something crazy. Something
. You don't know what it is, but it takes a hold of you and won't let go. So,
. And that's when you see it.
That place you've never forgotten; all of it's oddities, eccentricities and downright strangeness. But there's no denying it. You're happy to be back.

As I stated from the get-go this summer, my comeback would unfortunately be short lived. I enjoyed every second of my temporary return but as the summer is coming to its end, I am getting more and more busy and will soon be off again into the wonderful world of college and simply have no time to continue making buttons.
As is usual with my hiatuses, I never shut down Box as I adore it too much to think I won't want to come back to it some day. I love this site world as much as always but, simply won't have time for it. I may return next summer, or maybe even sooner if I get the sudden craving for button-making but, rest assured, you will likely see my buttons popping up some time in the future.
I wish you all the best in your site building and that each of you continues doing awesome things both on neo and in the outside world.
And to those of you who still love Box, I thank you for standing by this now over two-year-old site. I'll be sure to return, just for you, my little circus freaks and spazoid geeks and Box collectors alike. Till then: stay bold my fellow sitemakers.

I apologize for my absence! I had to leave for Chicago and didn't have time to update beforehand. I'm getting a lot busier as summer draws to a close, so, we'll see how much I can handle with Box before I head back to school.

Closed them quickly because I'm not sure how many I'll be able to finish before leaving. They'll probably re-open again before then but, for now, I don't want to bite off more than I can chew.

I'm back! My trip was absolutely perfect, I did not want to come back. I'll be around for about a week before I leave for Chicago at the end of the month. I'm back doing some basic updates and checking up on things but I'm not sure if I'll be opening requests just yet.
Got some of the most awesome

Seriously guys, I apologize for my absences. I've been busy getting a bunch of stuff on track before my trip and, unfortunately, buttons weren't on the top of my list.
I will do my best to finish what I can before I leave in two days.
Phew! Cleared all waiting requests today! It's likely I won't be online tomorrow then so, this is goodbye for a week!

Sorry about my disappearance, some days I just can't come on. I will have to finish waiting requests quickly though because I'll be leaving for San Francisco in only a few days.

Requests are closed.July 7th, 2012Dudes,
I know I'm sort of out of the loop when it comes to review sites but, if you're a review site or have any interest in reviewing, you should definitely
check out Turnip's newest guide, How to Write Great Reviews
. I don't know how she does it but, Turnip has graced us with yet another extensive and hugely helpful guide, this time into the world of reviewing. SO CHECK IT, YO.
Requests are still open so, keep 'em coming.
I'm going through a white text stripe phase if you couldn't tell...

I'm super excited about this month because in two weeks I will be going to San Francisco to visit my boyfriend which will easily be the best 7 days of my summer. So, yay July!
I've had to get used to a new way of animating which I think was severely slowing down my button making as I grew accustomed to it. But now I've gotten in the groove of things and should be back up to speed and churning out buttons daily.

I apologize for how slowly I'm going through requests. I'll do my best to pick up the pace a bit.

I had to close requests -- I seem to have become a much slower button maker than I remember. I used to average 8 buttons a day, what's happened to me?

I have the day off today but I will be going to see Brave this morning - necessary day out, in my opinion. So, I won't be getting around to making buttons till late afternoon. I'll try to get through a lot today.
Box has four new affiliates, the wonderful sites Euphoric

Holy sudden bunch of requests, Batman. But, sweet! (I assume I have The Lunch Box's
shout-out and Plethora's
bulletin board to thank for that.) After the inactivity of the last two days I'm happy people are out there. And requests are still open so, keep 'em coming.

Wow, I chose a bad time to come back didn't I? The site world has really died down since I was last here. Ahh, well. Regardless, it's good to be back.

buttons.June 23rd, 2012Could it be? Has Box really come back after a ten month hiatus?
It is the truth my friends. BOX IS BACK! But, that good news is followed by the bad news that it will unfortunately be only a temporary return. My summer has slowed down and every day the prospect of re-opening Box has become more and more appealing, I just couldn't resist. I will be busy though with work, travelling and so on. And as soon as I'm back at school I will sadly close Box once again. But, hey, let's make it a good ride.
As you can see, there is a new layout to commemorate Box's return. My layout making was a little rusty but tell me what you think
. I did some cleaning up around the site; my affiliates have been cleared so get at me
if you want to be affies. The old portfolio is still up, two years of button making, I'd be too sad to see it go. I won't be undergoing an entire revamp, I'm both too lazy and too set in my old ways for that. Everything is probably just as you remember it (that is, if you remember it).
So, without any further ado, requests are open! Let's return Box to its former glory!
