Scraps

I thought it would be fun to make something from the scraps that were left over from some of my previous projects.
So I grabbed my bag full of old ripped up paper and threw them all over my boring table.
I then put a clear plastic tablecloth over it, cut it to the size of my table, and then taped it to the sides. (Moo totally photo bombed my picture!)
All done! Now I have a super fun table that I can add to every time I have some left over scraps.

Let's eat cookies!

Dear Katie,

You know, I just found your blog, and I spent hours reading through every bit. I find myself amazed, inspired, and very very happy. What a great person you are! Spreading colour and love, and making people smile. I wish I had found your blog years ago, it would have inspired med to be a better person sooner. I sit here, asking myself: "how much fun am I to be with?", "what can I do for someone today?"- questions I should have asked myself every single day. Ok, I will stop now, I could go on forever. Bottom line: THANK YOU! And keep up the good work. :D

And last but not least, I love Moo! :)

Many warm hugs from Norway

That is an AWESOME idea!

I love a bright pop of a cheap and fun way to recycle scraps of paper against white walls

Style on a String ..because style has nothing to do with money.

Haha! I used old scraps of left-over coloured paper to cover my file like this when I was in highschool. Covering a table is awesome!!! You must have a lot of scrap paper
