From Trash to Treasure



I have problems throwing things away. I’m a bit of a hoarder and all you crafty people out there can probably understand why. I do end up using the things that I have (if I can find them). I heard the six-month rule before. It goes something along the lines of “if you haven’t used it in the last six months you probably won’t ever use it, so throw it away.” Well I disprove this thinking all of the time. This box, taken from a child’s stamp set, is a good example of something that I saved from the landfill. I’ve had it for about a year now and came across it when I was cleaning out a closet. I didn’t know what I would use it for but decided to turn it into a shadow box for the upcoming “feather her nest” baby shower a friend and I are throwing. It looks great hanging out on my book shelf and it gives me hope to think spring is just around the corner. Come on spring! Anytime now!!!
