I am working on a few things, but nothing is ready for sharing just yet. I wanted to show you one thing that I do though to get the most bang for a buck lately. I use the Cosmo cricket Elements for everything. I use my favorite designs for scrapbooking and card making, but what to do with the ones left over? I cut them all up following the lines on the paper. Then I leave a stack near my office stuff. I use them for Tags on gifts-baby gifts, birthday gifts (great if you forgot or don't have time for a card). I use them for cute notes to dh when we are at the park when he comes home, or any notes really. I'm less likely to forget the doctor's appt if it is on pretty paper. I think it's how papercrafters are wired.
I use them for tags on baked goodies-This one is for my new neighbor who just moved into the neighborhood. I feel a little dishonest, misrepresenting the neighborhood. This place is neither social nor environmentally friendly, but I felt like "Welcome to the urban jungle, here's a coffee cake, don't run over my kid with your SUV" was a little too blunt. It just said "Welcome to the neighborhood." :)I also think it would be neat to exchange recipes at a coffee or tea. Everything is just a little bit more special on pretty paper, and that's really why we do this isn't it? To make things just a little bit better for our family and friends. And a piece of Elements paper is very inexpensive for the number of tags you get, I love them. Off to go search for my mojo, maybe I wrote it down somewhere? Happy Wednesday! Until tomorrow.
