Circle garland with leftover scraps.

 I have this OCD thing, that when I receive a Citrus Twist kit that I use up just about everything in there before I move onto the next kit. Yes, that means pesky little scraps too. My scraps container is overflowing that even the kids have free rein to use them and it pile doesn't look it has moved. Sigh. 

Emma had these super cute tutorial for a circle garland. I cut out a hundred or so circles from the scraps of the Citrus twist kit.  Yes, I hand cut the circles, because I didnt have a circle punch the right size. I didnt mind sitting on the couch with a coffee cutting circles. I always find fussy cutting therapeutic.

Now my daughter has new garland in her bedroom. Think I need to make another one for my craft area! There so pretty and super easy and fun to make.
Garland addiction maybe?

Pop over to Emma Instagram or blog to see her tutorial.

Remembering today.

Happy New Year! The year may bring tough times. But we should remember there is still always, always, something to be thankful for. We should be grateful because it teaches us and helps us grow. We must never judge others, because we don't know whats going inside there heart. Perhaps the lady at the coffee shop just had a miscarriage and the man who ran rudely through the shopping centre is grabbing flowers to take to his dyeing mother.

We need to find love, strength and kindness to others and to ourselves. Teach our children to be thankful for each day.

I am beyond grateful to  have been invited to join the team at In the Scrap and share my first project.  I need to share my creativity and memory keeping in other lands where there is not as much inspiration in that land as to here in Australia. I want to be kind and teach to them the art of memory keeping.
