Another Post for Today
Hello again. I usually am not able to do a post every day of the week, and then - I am able to post twice in one day - go figure!! Anyway, I had to get this posted for the House Mouse Monday Blog Challenge . Today is the last day and I just finished. Not sure I really like it, but here it is anyway.
The challenge this week was to use "junk" in your project. You know what they say, "One man's junk is another man's(or woman's)treasure". That is so true in this case. This is one of my husband's cast offs - an empty cigar container destined to the garbage - but not anymore. I rescued it and made it into a gift container. Actually I started scavenging these a few years ago and I have a ton of them. I gave my daughter a whole bagful last year and I'm still overflowing - you just never know when you're going to need one - right?? Anyway - what to put into this tiny container - you could punch out all kinds of images - birds, bats, trees, reindeer, leaves, etc. etc. Another idea would be to make some of the paper clip bookmarks. Stick pin findings would be wonderful, and would allow your recipient to make their own decorative stick pins. You could punch out a ton of inchies for them to decorate or use as mats. Brads and eyelets would fit, and I'm sure you could come up with many more ideas as well.
Shortly I will have more House Mouse images and you will not be seeing the same image over and over and over again - lol!!
Take time today to tell someone how much you love them. Take care.
