I'm even putting them up on my blog to inspire others. (By the way, you'll all love the photo I took of a very funny sign recently...it's posted on my blog today!)
I just read some of your blog! It really hit home. Why can't I use what I have and make do. It reminds me of a short poem I heard once..."Make Do, Use it up, Make it last or go without" (or close to that!!)
I haven't been on SCS forever but stumbled across this post and I've been reading with earnest. I have to use what I have and make do with it to make almost like the new cattie and other things I see. It's really a simple concept. I did buy some stuff at the scrapbook store on Friday and then I bought some stuff at Michael's today but that's all I'm buying unless I run out of glue or card adhesive - creativity is going to be my middle name!
Love your blog. Very inspiring!!
