I've spoken to two people in the last 24 hours who's family have been affected by unemployment for 6 months or longer. I then read a post on a scrapbooking site i often visit where one woman had purchased her favorite kind of letter in so many styles and colors she had spent $350 just on that brand of letter.
Two extremes. I say it's easy to be creative when you have $350 worth of just one letter and who knows how much else. It's much trickier - and thus way more fulfilling to my way of thinking - when you have to work with what you have.
Some very talented ladies have done just that. Deb used bread ties (I read earlier today one company was selling blank twisty ties for $4 a package....without the bread!) Manda, Robin and Mardi used packaging that would have ended up in a landfil. Excellent - more play space for my great great grandkids! Finally Nellie use old fabric from old clothing. Since I am currently sorting through old baby clothes to make into quilts, I can appreciate this line of thinking.
So I applaud you all - Job well done! Won't you join me and take a look at the ladies creations and vote for your favorite?
