I wanted to have a quick play before bed last night/this am ..I have had these stamps sitting here staring at me LOL. I had an old paperback of hubby’s sat here on my desk for a while now too. He no longer wanted it and I didn’t want to waste it..so it was a toss up between upcycling it, or finding a new home for it. I am sure it was a fabulous story… but upcycling won.
I see this as a fitting tribute to the author who will now be enjoyed by a potential 322 people if I were to use the complete book to make bookmarks for Abandonment projects. That’s a pretty good audience, even if they only get to read snippets of it. Even if I had given it away complete….I doubt it would have ever reached that many people.
I may try that idea next….. like the old Where’s George site for $ bills. I could do a “WheresJim.com” and see how far a book travels; assuming of course the book is by an author called Jim, like this one. It might be fun to do it with a kids book… hmm, idea to tuck away for when I have some spare time 🙂
I have a bunch of stuff to take care of between now and tomorrow night. A new month is coming and that means Lots of projects and new challenges to be set up and winners to be picked.
