Isn't this originally from MartiGraw site 2002?

Now that is just my style, classy and in silver which is this years theme.

You have some really neat things here. It would be great if your photos were bigger. You really can't see the projects very well.

These craft ideas aqre such a hoot! I have been playing with "left-overs" my entire life, and I pity the women who'se work is so serious that they don't have time for these whimsical light-hearted crafts. My own daughter-in-law puts these wonderful things into a covered trash can immediately and indiscriminately so that her dog won't get into it. What a shame these is no trash stream from her, and she connot appreciate the creativity involved in snipping and glueing, coloring and taping, much less displayng home made things on the mantle or coffee table. My sister framed her family candid photos and hung them in her bathroom, saying anyone who stays an hour will go in there! God bless her. DB in Connecticut

Outdoordrapery: Some people are not creative, maybe she isn't. Ever think of that side, just because you are doesn't make her that. My mil is not.
