just lying around…

A little while ago, whilst on another pretend to tidy my desk mission (I am the worlds most chaotic scrappy crafty journaller evidenced by the state of my desk – never to be seen on WOYWW for that very reason) I dedicated a jar to “bits”.  Stuff that hangs around my desk with no special home, off cuts of lace, odd buttons and keys, things that basically I can’t be bothered to put away. 
The idea of this jar was when I did do some sort of crafting I had to include something from the jar in whatever I was working on.
A few days ago I was sat at my desk – yep, pretending to “tidy it up” and found a Jenni Bowlin mini bingo card.  I, as always, couldn’t be bothered to put it away, so I dipped into my jar and challenged myself to do something with it.  And here’s the result…. a little hanging with a few words to keep me going while I do battle with day to day life.

Tomorrow should bring me a sewing machine, fingers crossed, and I already have a project started in readiness using up more “stuff” lying around my desk, *rubs hands together*.  Until then, thanks for stopping by.  I really do appreciate it.

Ha ..I do the same thing ..sort of..only I ADD to mine..I do intend to use them and I try, then end up cutting a frame or making a flower and adding it to one of the tubs ( yes i have more than one!) and use something else!! Good luck and hope your machine arrives.

That jar is a great idea, I think I need one too. Love the creation too.

What a neat idea to use up those odds and ends. I had a pot like that until it grew to two and I realised it just wasn't working
