I am so glad that recycling has become vogue, because in my sorting out my craft room, I’ve discovered way too many special “I can reuse that” items I have – errrr – hoarded away.
I’ve also discovered things that I bought for card making, that I really don’t like. Its either because I’m not using them correctly, or that I had a preconceived idea of how they should work. Case in point… the current “mists” I’m using. They come out not as fine a mist as I think they should, and they do not dry as quickly either. I definitely am going back to an alcohol based product, or will learn how to make my own. Before I do that though, I’m going to try to use up all the things I don’t like first… Perhaps I’ll learn to like them LOL
Now I’m in a panic, because I know I have more cards I’ve saved to recycle bits from… so this is the time I will be working hard to organize it before gardening season starts! So, my main confession is to really warn you about some impromptu posts coming up on how to recycle old Christmas cards into new ones! I’ll try to limit my posts to three examples, and show you how I’ve managed to reduce my “treasures” and put them into good use again!
Now that you’ve been warned… Come back tomorrow for the first installment of Card Recycling-101!
