Feel free to interpret this as you wish. I was inspired by some lovely Christmas wrapping paper I saw, but it can be objects made of paper, origami etc, or what you wish.

This is what happens to paper and packaging which I no longer need;
1. Shredded.
2. Mixed with straw for the floor and nest box in my chook-house.
3. Raked up after the chooks have contributed and put in the compost bin.
4. Eventually spread on the vegie garden.

Here's my 'stash' of scrapbooking paper, you never know when you're going to need a particular colour or design:

Sweet angel!

I can't resist buying "grab bags" of scrapbooking paper whenever I see them. I usually find something useful, and opening them is like getting a present smile

Your 'beige' grab bag looks like the same range of papers I have, only my lots are in pink and blue ...

I can't believe how little your grab bags cost, Over here on the second-hand market 40 sheets would cost around 15 euros, and new-in-the-shop around 30 euros!

Next two weeks' Theme suggestions anyone? Christmassy of course. In the past we have had Trees, Decs and Lights. We can use these again if you like.

Need more votes/suggestions before Sunday Thanks. Santana sent me a great idea for 25th onwards. So Santa is for one week only (if we decide this will be the theme) I really want to use Tonis for the 12 days of Christmas'.

Anything at all to do with Christmas is fine by me. My camera batteries are charged, just have to get off my butt and take some pictures LOL

A card I made recently for my friend's new baby, Nate. Sue, I used a Martha Stewart punch set to get the lacy effect.
