the beginning

When I saw how much paper are wasted in a regular office everyday, I felt a heavy tug inside. Gotta start doing something... so, for beginners, I am posting a recycled folder. Any standard folder, but the textured ones will do best so there won't be a need to cover it up or paint. As for the downloadable pdf pattern ready-to-print on your used-throw-away folders, please be patient as I am still perfecting it with the instructions...

Then, I'd let you know if my also-recycled embellishments (or scrapbooking / craft decors) would soon be ready for online orders... I'd like to hear comments, 'tho. I might be starting to give away some samples I'd post here (if you guys would care to receive some, although am afraid you'd have to handle postal fees, as I am still trying to figure out how these materials could actually reach their destination using Philippine Postal system. The last time I tried, I was advised by the the post office staff not to register my mail anymore -going to Texas-, but judging by the lack of response from my recipient, it seemed the small packet I sent by mail never reached its destination. Darn! I feel like wringing and wasting some flesh right now.) do let me know.

Anyway, here's the finished product.





So, next time you'd see a used folder around, think twice before throwing it away. Give a little time for mother earth. Frame a letter from a good friend, a favorite quote, an interesting magazine photo, or anything you'd want to hang and see from time to time...

Hey, I wasn't sure which of your blogs you wanted me to check, so I looked at all of them.

1)I too love Rock Lobster, and whoever said you would be a bad DJ obviously doesn't know how to get down.

2)I like what you did to that folder. Looks sturdy, and those flowers look cool.

3)I'll definitely swing by your blogs in the future.
