Visit my creative tribe members right here at Ms. Julia's very cool blog party.
I was, of course, in a hurry. Pulling out the pieces I need to put together a card for a friend while I'm on the go. Believe me, I'd much rather be camped out in my cozy crafty corner all day...but thems the breaks.
Here is part of my pile of cardboard packaging I've been cutting. The plan: make zillions of diecuts, emboss them, and paint them! All from perfectly good packaging cardboard. Upcycling at its best! I'll post about it. I love the idea of creating a nice stash of diecut embellishments.
Isn't this hemp cord cute? I'm going to crochet necklace cords with it. I found it, of all places, at Wal-mart. (or, Wally World as my friends and I call it) Sometimes you can find a treasure in their short craft aisle. Every time I go to Wal-Mart, there is a "theme." Sometimes it's babies-crying-in-every-aisle day. Sometimes it's women-inappropriately-dressed day. When I was there the other day it was let's-just-block-the-whole-aisle-with-our-shopping-cart-and-kids day. I swear, in every aisle, someone had their shopping cart completely blocking it with out-of-control children flailing about! You gotta love Wally World. Rant over.
So now, I think I've earned my favorite breakfast from Panera. Woo hoo! And happy Wednesday lovelies.
