Last year while at the grocery store, I was approached about getting the Sunday Paper. I could think of a hundred reasons why I should not have subscribed…I don’t read the news, I google it:). The coupons thing did not interest me, because they never apply to the foods we eat and it is exhausting to keep up with. But this man offered a $10 gift card to the grocery store and a free subscription for a month!!! $10…do you know the damage I can do at the grocery store with $10 (with a dripping hint of sarcasm)!
Yes I am a sucker for free gifts:)
So I signed up and surprise, surprise…I did not cancel the paper until a year later! So I scoured the craft websites and pinterest, for ideas on minimizing and ridding my closet of my stack of newspaper, still in it’s plastic wrap!
No…I am not a hoarder! Although somedays I wonder:)
The newspaper, is definitely a dying (if not already dead) purchase! So much so, that I am still getting the paper with no charge…every Sunday!!! I keep calling and telling them that I have cancelled…”yes ma’am, it shows you cancelled and you will not be billed!”…
I have now accepted my lot in life…I will have a newspaper on my door and I will not be able to throw it away!
So instead, I craft:) Which is very easy to find useful crafts, since we are gift wrapping:)
I made gift bags…I will put up a tutorial tomorrow!
I am making wrapping paper…here are some of the examples!
I used acrylic paint, mostly diluted with water. One tutorial says to iron it…I just used it right when it was dry. I just browsed christmas categories on Pinterest, and this is what I was inspired to create:)
