New & Thrifted Goodies

I found the black muffin cooking tray for $.25 at a thrift store. I spray painted it with primer first and then black to put my crafting goodies in it. I could have done a better job with the painting but I figured it would get beat up during usage so no big deal.

I found the blue star for my washi tape at the thrift store too. It was $4 and it's pretty heavy. I didn't know what I would use it for until I brought it home. I'm a big fan of stars so I knew I'd find a home for it fast.

Added the Studio Calico wood veneers to my collection along with Project Life Maggie Holmes Flea Market edition and some sweet clear stamps. A couple of months ago I started doing Project Life in a 6x6 binder instead of a 12x12 binder. I did this because I wasn't sure if I would like the idea and using the Simple Stories collection instead of the Becky Higgins Project Life collection was way cheaper. I tried that for a couple of weeks and found myself really enjoying it. I went ahead and purchased the Simple Stories 12x12 binder in Teal and I've finished my cover page, still working on finishing week one. I'm pretty excited to see my progress after a month or two. It doesn't take much to put it all together. You don't have to be "creative" or know what you're doing.. you kind of just go with the flow. Some folks do it in order, some skip around.. that's the beauty of it. You can do whatever you want to it. Hope to share that with you as soon as I get more progress done.

Hope you had a good weekend!
