My No Buy Challenge has me looking a little closer at items that I come across in my day. It is my yearning for something new in my stash that is motivating me. Am I sounding a bit desperate? ;) I do keep a little drawer in the studio where I put things that I figure I may be able to upcycle in a page at some time.
Yesterday, while driving in Rob's car I spied a map sitting in the console. Curiously, I opened it up to see what I can only describe as a Studio Calico kind of vibe. It was a free map given out by our community showing where all the bike paths are. I immediately asked if more were available and could I have this one. When we arrived home, this is what I created.
These are for a future Ikea LO. Scraplift idea from Sian.
Well I am happy to say that I am off to the LSS today. The girls gifted me with scrappy gift cards for Mother's Day!!! Historically they don't encourage or support my scrappy addiction but this year they must be seeing it differently since I am not buying. I am so excited to get to go and pick out some new items..... I mean sooooo excited!!! LOL Mother's Day and my Birthday this summer are the two occasions this year that will give me a bit of a break from the diet. These new items will motivate me to get through to 2014. I plan on using the certificates frugally and wisely. I'll be looking for the most bang for my buck but also looking for newer trends that will update my older supply. I will be sharing my finds and buying strategy at the end of the month in my update.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
