Wow. This has been a great weekend. Saturday my youngest received his First Holy Communion. What a wonderful day. He has been so excited for the last month. I think the whole day lived up to his expectations. And did I mention that my parents arrived Friday? Well, that was the best way to start a weekend if you ask me! I just love having them here. Thankfully they will be here for a whole month!
I thought I would share a little secret today. Some of you may already know this and some of you may have this little secret too. I cannot throw away my "small" scraps of paper when I make an album. I have this amazing file for all my little pieces. I save paper, ribbons, beads,....all sorts of stuff. But, I do make things with them. Really. For the last 2 weeks I made cards. Lots and lots of cards. I participated in a market show all day Thursday and decided to make my primary product cards. The show went well but I still have some cards left. (I'm actually ok with having leftover cards because now I have cards for when I need them!) I think it's a wonderful thing to reuse something on a card. Below are 2 of my favorite ones from the show.
I hope this inspires you. It amazes me that you can create something from scraps that would normally end up in the wastebin. I did not cut a single piece of paper larger than 6 x 6 for this. All the pieces were tiny bits as was the ribbons and lace. Think out of the box ladies.
Have a great day and check back this week. I took lots of pics at the market show so I have some great cards to post this week.
