On my work desk today is my first attempt at a smash book.. they appear to be the latest thing in the scrap booking world and have taken off like hot cakes... which makes me laugh, as they are exactly the sort of stuff I made before I started scrap booking and then got into making mini books!!
I'll let you know how it turns out...
Oh and I went to a garage sale at the weekend at my neighbours church... they snuck me in the afternoon before the garage sale was to start so I had a lovely time mooching about without the distraction of hoards of people looking for a bargain!! Look what I found!
I saw this box of beads... wooden beads and asked the lady how much the beads were... she looked at me oddly and said they were hoping to sell the entire box.... eeek, that's a lot of beads!! $3 for the box!
and these are hand made pottery beads... $2 for the entire biscuit tin!
and this tub of lovely coloured ones was $2 too!! I think I will be using beads on my next few projects.... lots of beads....
Curiosity and the cats.... don't worry, she got her head out fine!!
Any suggestions for using up beads??? Please?
Don't forget to go and check on Julia and her linky list of desks to be perused!!
