Holy COW!

I knew I had great friends, really I did, but after making two pick up's today...I'm floored! I'm so blessed with generous friends. I should have taken a picture of the back of my van...we had to put the seats down and we still had things all piled on top of each other. One awesome friend even "forced" me to take the awesome organizers you see everything in. I know these pictures aren't the best, but I had to at least give you some idea of the haul from today. Let the fun begin!

As a bonus my boys got in the crafting mood. One is making a popsicle stick box for his dum dum wrapper collection. The other is making a house...nice framing job, don't ya think. Notice the fence he's started too .
............ding dong! .........we interrupt this post for another donation....another generous friend just gave us a bunch of batting, fun fabric and felt. I seriously feel like it's Christmas!

Join us!

This weekend our goal is to get our "cleaned upon" and donated supplies organized. Yup, you read that right. I sent out an email to my local addicts and told them I'd be glad to take their dust collecting, guilt inducing, valuable space hogging, unused craft supplies off their hands. I'm shocked and thrilled at the responses. My goal is to make great, creative, fun, useful things for little or no money during our mother-daughter craft expedition. You could say I'm cheap or you could go with my version which is..." We all need to do our part to save the earth. If I can stop the senseless waste of craft supplies filling our nations landfills, I have to do it! Who am I to turn down donated buttons, fabric, glue etc. Just consider this my service to closets, homes, mankind and mother earth!"

So, if you want to get gathering from your friends and neighbors and join us, just leave us a comment and let us know. We'll add you to our "eco-crafters list". Wish us luck and creativity!

Cleaning out closets

Cleaning out your closets can lead to lots of thing but in our case it lead to thinking of crafts ideas with materials we "cleaned upon." We have to confess that our whole inspiration for this is Pink Christmas. We want to rock our sister's worlds with our amazing gifts. Our brains are still brewing the amazing crafts we will create and we'll open shop on the first of August. Check back then for crafts and fun announcements!
