Saving the World one Craft at a Time

Meet our firstborn, Hiro...





He lives in our office...




Being on this craft kick, I've discovered that reusing and recycling plays into crafting a whole lot. It's pretty fun actually. Tonight Andrew asked me if there was anything we could make together. I was so excited that he was asking that I quickly said yes and found one of the crafts online I had been wanting to make. Unfortunately I jumped the gun so much that we only got about 1/4 of the way through the project when I realized we didn't have 3 vital ingredients! (I know ingredients isn't the right word since I'm not referring to food, but I can't think of that other word...what is it?) That project involved a phone book, of which only about 1% of Americans use anymore! So I was happy to be recycling it. But since that didn't happen, I was inspired to wrap some presents...


Matthew's birthday was at the beginning of August. I've had a gift for him since June, I think, but never sent it. So I wrapped it tonight to bring to him when I go to IL at the end of this month...



For anyone who knows Matthew, you know he'll get a kick out of the page from the phone book that I chose to be on the front of his gift. The little name tag is made out of one of the magnets that are always annoyingly placed on the front of phone books. I wrote on it with whiteout...when I messed up I used a Sharpie...how backwards is that?! ;)

Then I wrapped my dad's present (whose birthday is tomorrow). I used 2 tea boxes...




Another reuse I've put into play are these...



Old canisters tacked to the wall being used as pencil/whatever holders.


Oh, I decided to put my little cattail bundle in the olive oil bottle. I think it looks much better. Andrew just realized tonight that they were real...he thought I bought them from Hobby Lobby.




Time to edit some wedding photos for Zach and Jenn...
Over and Out.

You're adorable! You're making me want to be crafty... haha. If only there was a Hobby Lobby within walking distance of my house in Greenville... but alas, it is not to be. :( Your posts are putting me in the fall mood! :)
