Hello Sharon!
Great article, as always. I wanted to share a recycled seed catalog gift I got from my oldest son last year for Christmas. I kept saying I needed a new seed box. I knew he was up to something, but when Christmas came. He really out did himself. My new seed box.

Hi George, I remember your great seed box from last year, it still looks great and I see you are still using it!

Thanks for reading the article, I am hoping we'll get lots of new ideas from it.

And thanks for sharing your seed box with us, too.
It's always nice to hear from you.

I made a start (and then left alone for months) several projects on making gazing balls using decoupage technique. I think you have just inspired me to get back to them.
Thanks for a great article.

Hi Bugme...
Thanks for writing. Be sure to let us know what you use your catalogs for!

Dutchlady..
Gazingballs are something I have never tried, so I would love to see yours when you get it finished.

Angie..
As always it is so nice to hear from you, thank you.

Hi Janet,
Good to hear from you too, thank you.

Booplants was a great subject for the article.

I've already begun cutting out pretties Sharran and saving them for when I can get to making these wonderful gifts. Right now the weather and caring for Mom are keeping me inside so there is some time to cut them out. One thing I've learned about cutting out pics is using the manicure scissors and, if you can picture this, sort of holding them at an angle and turning the paper...not the pictures. I can't explain it but it sort of gives the finished product a beveled edge rather than looking so cut out(or flat) ...does that make sense? Sorry if not, but for those who are new to this it really does work.

Oh yes, very clear, and I can see how it would give it that beveled edge. I have been cutting out, too, and have a very untidy pile on my table now, but how fun it is, and how pretty it's going to be.

Bugme, I cut exactly like that but it is too difficult to explain...as you just found out! I have so many pairs of manicure scissors and get them sharpened every so often.

Well, now I'm glad I've held onto all of those craft things for years...turned one craft room into a "crap" room...LOL. DH has asked many times why I don't just get rid of it all. My response "I might need it one day". When first starting out with MP and cutting out pics I think he feared I would cover him too!!
