Wrapping Things Up


I woke up with an idea in my head. Sometimes the ideas I wake up with in the AM are not that great, such as the time I woke up and decided I didn't need to work anymore. Half way into that day I realized the error of my way. Showed up to work around 1:00 and declared my temporary retirement was over. Luckily, no one had picked up the voice mail as that is normally my job. Sure I was still employed, but a bit sad no one knew I was living on the edge. Whatever. I digress. This morning's idea seemed safe enough, so off I went. The above used to be packaging that held Crate Paper chipboard letters. Covered it in some Fa La La paper and a poinsettia I received from Anne as a RAK and voila! There you have it...a covered container. So I'm new to this re-purposing thing. It started out as a container to hold a mini-Christmas tree. What was I thinking? That ended up looking like a palm tree in a thimble. Not one to give up. It is now a gift card holder. Tomorrow it may be something else. Yeah...living on the edge the Denise way can be pretty exciting....or not.

I LOVE this Denise! You crack me up, the way you think sometimes. It is your own unique creative process and it works! :-)

I love "hearing" you on your blog!!
Great repurposing! I might lift that because I've got some crystal light containers that I've been holding onto for something creative:)

You are hilarious! I think you must live on the edge of a mole hill...and that it's time to move to a bigger hill. Perhaps a sledding hill?

You did create a beautiful repurposed item, whatever it may become. :)

Well now, aren't you just the little creative genius! As far as living on the edge, I guess I will have to live vicariously through you!
