Sharing from Scraps
Happy Wednesday morning, I am in the middle of one of my big projects but thought I would share this idea with you. Anything bigger than 2"X2" is considered a scrap in my world, that size was determined many years ago by my Quickutz and the 2"X2" dies. LOL and I wonder why my scrap bin over flows! I digress - when I am doing a larger project I do all my prep work in a mass production fashion. These scraps are 2" by 5 3/4", instead of tossing into the garbage I take them to my binder, punch and bind them with scrap o-rings, I save my o-rings too even if there is only 1 but that is another project. I then keep them in a bin to use for notes by the TV, work table, etc. Some of them I embellish and throw in my purse to share with a favorite waiter or waitress, store clerk etc. In college I worked as a waitress/bartender and then for 7 years was a waitress in the sky, working as a flight attendant. There was nothing that brightened up my day more than someone who truly appreciated the little things I did. This tiny gesture costs me nothing but a few moments and some scraps but it reminds someone out there that what they are doing counts and that above and beyond does not go unseen or unrewarded. So, what's in your scrap bin, make someones day, share.
