Sorry I've been silent of here lately. I got sick earlier this week and was dead to the world. I feel great now though! If it stops raining here tomorrow I may go to our town's 4th of July parade just to get out of the house. It's a huge thing here - they even bring in port-a-potties for the event! Luckily the route goes down the street right outside my apartment so I only have to walk about 200 meters.
Anywho, I'm loving the boxes - it's so fun to see what we all get. It reminds me of the old addage: One man's trash is another man's treasure. Except for us it's: One craftster's extras/overyardages/unused is another Craftster's creativity pile!
I received from TerraBella01 a couple of days ago, so here's my goodie pile! I absolutely adored the stuff!
The first things I saw were the large stash of paper goodness and a length of fabric. Most of the paper will go into cards and scrapbooks. I'm going to use the fabric to make more quiet bags for our children at church (bags with crayons and color books for worship service). They will love the bright colors and print - especially the boys who always complain about the "girlie" fabric on some of the bags!
Then there were the four cross stitch mini-kits. They were the cutest patterns. I passed them along to my best friend who is on her back after surgery. She's nearly got them all done!
This photo also shows more paper. I love the metallic paper (on the right side). And the Mickey Mouse paper is PERFECT for my Disney scrapbooks I'm working on.
I told TerraBella01 that I had to laugh because I passed on a very similar object in this photo to one of my partners in their box! (Won't tell what here to not spoil the surprise!)
Thanks! I love everything and will use it all!
