A tag and WOYWW79
I'm supposed to be working on a couple of baby albums for a cousin (and if you've been following What's On Your Workspace Wednesday for a while, you might remember that I started working on them many moons ago. Lol). And I am... working on them..... I've been cutting 8x8 sheets of patterned paper and stamping alphabet letters and cutting die cuts.... but my mind wanted a little challenge. So I came up with:
Frugal tip #44: When you're working on an assembly-line project, take a break and create something with your scraps.
I read somewhere that it's fun to do this after you've finished a project. Use the scraps to make a quick card or tag for future use, but I say, why wait 'til your project is over? This may be too much to ask of someone who prefers a singular focus until a project is over. I'm just saying it's a boredom buster, that's all. It worked for me. I put together this tag for a challenge over at All Things Unity. It was fun and relaxing to punch out all those squares and do a little paper piecing. Now I'm ready to get back to the albums.

If you're not familiar with WOYWW and you're a little curious, click on the icon in my sidebar on Wednesday and tour around people's desks for a little inspiration.
I wish you warmth and coziness....
