Hey everyone I’m back, remember me? Sorry to completely disappear like that last week but I swear it was one headache after another (I’m a migraner for those of you who don’t know) and I barely had enough good hours to get my real work done, let alone think about posting here 😦
Good news is I seem to be feeling much better, at least temporarily, and that means I brought along a quick quick little post (even though it’s Tuesday!).
Besides apologizing for dropping off the grid (and offering a quick shout-out to how AMAZING Bones was last night! okay out of my system I promise) I decided that today would be a push for having a craft bin. No matter how cramped your space is, and trust me storage is at a premium in my room, a craft bin is essential in the life of anyone who is prone to spurts of creativity and DIYing.
Case in point I have had a lot of Birthday’s recently in my circle of friends, and I like to send homemade cards (especially to those I don’t see as often) to make the whole note more personal. This would be a lot harder to accomplish if I didn’t keep my craft bin well stocked.
I keep stacks of pretty paper, old cards and gift tags with really neat graphics (after I save the side with the note for myself of course!), stickers, ribbon, glitter/glue. You know all the stuff we stopped needing to have on hand back in like middle school, now I get to keep it on hand because I like it!
You never know what pieces are going to come together for a particular person that day, which is why it’s nice to have options. My mom calls me a hoarder for hanging onto scraps like this, but I figure if it fits in its little box neatly under my bed it can’t be too much of a problem 🙂
That’s it for today, but feel free to shout back, what’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten in the mail?
