make use of what you have

I think this will be my mantra for 2016: make use of what you have.
Still in the midst of getting a handle on "stuff." Getting to know just what's in my pantry, sewing cabinet, desk. Promising myself to make use of it all, the large, the small. Keep or give away.
This is a big job and to do it right will take a while. So it's satisfying to take a time out and give yourself a gift of time to tackle a mini project.
Last year's sewing room calendar, twelve quilts illustrated in perfect squares, gave me today's happy diversion.

On the back side of the calendar there were miniatures of each quilt which made the perfect little gift tags for each box.
Gosh, I've forgotten just how much I love to play with paper.


  1. Yeah, you know I always have a lot of thing, part and details for crafting that are always left after some projects. When a lot are gathering I try to use them to do something.

  2. That is a very sweet little card Sharon. I do love a paper project too!
