Scraps of paper give away

Gisteren toen ik aan het winkelen was vond ik twee laden die, hoopte ik, wel op mijn bureau zouden passen. En wat denk je? Ze zijn perfect!

Yesterday I was shopping here in my town and I found two drawers that, I hoped, would fit on my desk. Suprise, suprise, they fitted perfectly!
Het was gelijk de aanleiding om mijn kamer eens grondig op te ruimen. Ik wist niet meer dat ik zo'n GROOT bureau had!

And the drawers sent me into a cleaning frenzy! I did not remember my desk being so BIG!
Terwijl ik aan het opruimen was kwam ik mijn restpapier mandje tegen. Daar gooi ik alle kleine stukjes papier in die over zijn "omdat ik ze misschien nog eens kan gebruiken."

While I was cleaning I found my scrap basket. I throw the little scraps of paper in there because "I can, maybe, probably, use it sometime."
Dat was de aanleiding om een paar kaarten te maken met de restjes papier. Met de Tattered Florals and de Tattered Leaves snijmal van Tim Holtz heb ik wat bloemen en blaadjes uitgestansd en daar zijn deze kaarten mee gemaakt. Enkel de kaart zelf is een nieuw stuk papier. Niet slecht hmm?

That challenged me to make some cards using just pieces from the scrap basket. With the Tatered Florals and Tattered Leaves die I cut some flowers and leaves and assembled these cards. Only the card itself is a new piece of paper. Not bad, hmm?

Maar wat ik ook tegenkwam waren een paar zeer zielige papierboekjes. Ik heb ze niet of nauwelijks gebruikt. En deze boekjes zoeken een nieuw thuis! Dus mocht je op de foto hieronder nu een boekje zien die je graag zou willen adopteren, laat me dat dan weten in een comment (zet dan je e-mail erbij als volgt: xxx at xxx punt xxx en het nummer van het boekje die je graag zou willen hebben!) Of stuur me een e-mail (lindavanvliet at home punt nl) Dan neem ik contact met je op voor je postadres. Ik zou het erg leuk vinden om een kaart terug te ontvangen. Misschien een kaart die je gemaakt hebt met dit papier?
UPDATE: Het is klaar. Alle blokken hebben een nieuw thuis gevonden!

But I also found these poor, poor paper blocks. I have used almost nothing from these papers. And these paper blocks are looking for a new home! So If you see a block you would like to adopt let me know in a comment (put your e-mail in your comment like this: xxx at xxx dot xxx and the number of the block you like) Or send me an e-mail (lindavanvliet at home dot nl) I will contact you for your snailmail adress. I would very much like to receive a card in return. Maybe a card you made with these papers?
UPDATE: It's done. All the blocks have found new homes!



even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!
