Wow, I've got new followers!!! Welcome!!! And I'm so very happy to see you!!! I hope you've already made yourselves at home because you are. I'll be dropping by, wen/if I find you, to say hello personally as soon as I can get to you. Thank you so much for joining my family!!!
I received a few emails regarding where to purchase the 12x24 paper for the Cricut. If you're having a difficult time locating the paper and Cricut.com does not have it available, I have had great luck at:
I have ordered the paper from both these places on a few occassions (when our Michaels was out of it) and had no problem at these on-line stores. If you still have a difficult time, please let me know and maybe we can work out some arrangement of getting it for you; okay?
Well, now I'll share a little something I put together with you. It's another recycled ice cream container. For some reason, I think I'm beginning to fixate on every box I see ... lol!!! I was even looking at an empty butter box until I caught myself and said to myself... "Audrey, it's just a plain ordinary shaped box you can easily do". Am I terrible or what?!!! My hubby said I almost blew his head off when I caught him getting ready to throw the box away and screamed not to do it; well, don't you agree he should always check with me before throwing anything away?! LOL!! Anyway the name, Such a "Newsy" Little Thing, comes from my using newspaper in the background; the leather paper I've had for a long time and the company that makes it is no longer in business so I use the paper I have left very sparingly. Here's the box:
I hand-strung the beads onto 12 guage wire for the handle and I used Vintage Photo color Distress Ink to age the box and the crumbled newspaper; the closure embellishment is an old earring I found and attached a bead to. Two of my little cousins alreadys wants it to use as a small purse. Of course, to prevent an argument, I'll have to make another one because I won't even try to decide which of them to give it to!!! So, they'll both wait until hubby buys himself another pint of his favorite icecream, then they'll both have one.
Well, I'm still working my way around to visiting while I'm crafting, so I'll be back again soon. In the meantime, don't forget about the "Pay It Forward" previous post!
Hope you like my box!!!
I'll be seeing you!
