Piles of Scraps!

Wow!  Once in a while we need to step back from the creative process and sort through the piles of scraps that have accumulated.  LOL!  Where did they all come from!  Where to begin?

I decided to put on some fun music to keep me motivated and put all the scraps I had stashed here and there together.  Looking at the piles, I decided that my new 10-drawer rolling cart, which my wonderful husband bought me when I started my business, was ready to see its new purpose.

With sticky notes to temporarily identify the drawers, it was time to begin!  Some pieces were tossed, but the vast majority were kept and divided accordingly--Solid, Patterned, Muted, Textured, Sticky-Backed, Border Strips, Fabric/Felted, Photo, Bling, and Mulberry.

Now I am making "drawer-plates" to identify the contents of each drawer, using scraps, of course! I'll show you these later.  :-)  I think we will start a "Make it From Your Scraps!" challenge and share our creations with one another.

Sorting through the paper pieces was a trip down memory lane!  From pieces that formed scrapbook pages of family outings, visits, birthdays, new babies to dearly departed, hand crafted cards, home decor, etc., the papers all reminded me of the blessings God has bestowed upon me.

Have a wonderful day!  Thank you for visiting!
