when life gives you scraps

If you sew you have scraps.

Some keep them all organised in colour
or size and sometimes range.
Some sort them and iron them.
Some make beautiful strippy quilts from them.

I just tied thousands onto a coat hanger
and bent it into the shape of a heart.

I'm crazy like that.

now it's even cooler

In a bid to be a little more organised this year
I thought I'd make myself a business card/note holder.

I began with a daggy cooling tray

gave it a quick spray with paint that was
 left over from another project

added a few bits of broken bling and

ta da! new card holder!

these are a few of my favourite pins

It's no secret I love pinterest

As this is the beginning of the new year I thought I'd start a weekly thing where I would show you my 3 favourite pins of the week.
I'll put them into categories for you and add the direct link to the source.
Sometimes the links on pinterest are broken so I won't be using those .

Without further adieu I give you my 3 favourite craft pins!

Kindle Holder from a hardcover book ~ Come Together Kids

Key to flow ~ Yarn Balls 
Tulle pom pom balls from Chintzy Couture
Next week I'll be featuring pins from my papery board
so I hope you will enjoy that too.
Follow me on pinterest , I find some really good stuff.
when the dog bites , when the bee stings , when I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite pins get it !
