Yesterday I dug my Fimo out from my stash,  I haven't played with it for ages and had forgotten quite how addictive it is.  I haven't baked these yet as I plan to make a few more tomorrow.  The veggies are pieces I made a few years ago.

Cherie--you have made me rethink everything before I put it in the trash!  I noticed today that hubby had washed out a few jars and bottles and placed them in my craft room... Grin

It is a lovely and unique card! (now putting tins on my list of "do not throw out"... )

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin   I have been teaching recycled crafts to a lovely group of ladies for the past few weeks.  They all smile and say that they can't throw anything away now... mwahahahahahahahahahahahha..... and so the addiction spreads.

This is what i would be tempted to do but it won't help you to destash.  :-)

Wrap the fimo in some wax paper and tuck into your bra.  The warmth from your body should soften it.  The wooden jigsaw pieces are great as bases for decoupage/paint projects and make quirky jewellery.  The cracked plates might make great  mosaic projects.... save the prettiest bits.  Paint then decoupage the picture frames.  Use the the polystyrene chunks to make bodies for little santa ornaments (i have one on my blog somewhere that I made last year). Old blankets make great wadding for quilts  (the middle layer).  Pad out the wooden coat hangers and cover them in pretty fabric

My lovely neighbours Joan and Bryan bring me little parcels of  ' recycled things you might be able to use'. They choose their bleach bottles with me in mind.  Joan was telling me that they stand in front of the bleach display and say ' I wonder if Cherie has that colour'  :-)   Foil packaging has been a recent addition to the parcels. It is Bryan's 80th birthday on Sunday so of course the card I made him has to be made from upcycled things doesn't it?Huh?    The letters and tools are all die cut from a foil pie dish. I cut the tools from card too so that I could stick the 'metal bits' onto the card die cuts to make them look realistic.  I know it will make Bryan smile and Joan shake her head....... we aim to please   :-)

19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Box Card on: October 30, 2014 09:54:19 AM
This morning I attended a craft session at the local library.  It felt a little strange to be a 'learner' as it is usually me that teaches at the session but I am so glad that I went.  We all made a really pretty 'box card'.  They fold flat and will easily fit into a standard envelope though you would need a 'large' stamp due to the thickness of the card.  I can see this becoming a favourite card design for me. We also made a Christmas card and the second picture shows the one that I made.  It is a very simple design but looks very effective. It was amazing to see all the different variations of both cards.

I have been tumbling some of my sea glass collection in my rock tumbler. I love to pick up the chalky smudgy coloured glass off the beach whenever we take a seaside holiday. There is quite a large collection in my stash so I have been playing with it all these past few days. Yesterday I put some of the pieces into my rock tumbler to see how well they would polish. I dont want to make them too shiny as I love the chalkiness of the colours. I put a milk carton lid in the picture to give you an idea of size. I would love to know what kind of glass the opal one is though. Pity it doesnt show too well in the photo as it is gorgeous.
