Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter C. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their C element will be featured in their post.
If you came from Linda Norman at Scrappy Therapy then you’re on the right track!
My project for today’s hop is related to what I am calling the “crafter’s curse”. There’s my letter C tie in . I recently discovered this curse while cleaning my craft room…..again, can you relate? It seemed that in each cupboard, drawer and basket I found some little “treasure” that I had squirreled away. You know what I mean, those packaging items and left over things that most people would throw in the trash or recycling bin, (I’ve actually had to force myself to throw away the cute little ”envelopes” that tea bags sometimes come in). We crafters keep these things…..why? Because they might come in handy to make something wonderful!……someday. Here are a few examples of what I found while cleaning:
Remember those cd’s that AOL used to send in the mail to get you to try their internet service? (This shows just how long I’ve been cursed!) Well, they come in this great little box with a magnetic flap closure. For today’s project (I really did create something for the Blog Hop ) I used the box from Vonage, because it’s orange and would work with the new Buzz & Bumble paper, and it’s a little smaller so it will fit in my purse more easily. I made this cute little accordion album to keep photos of my grands in. The photos I used are already out of date (they grow so fast!)…..I’d better get out the camera and take some new ones!
