SCRAP valentines

Happy almost Valentine's Day! Always a great excuse to make things and let friends know that they're appreciated.

Last week, me and Hope ventured over to the SCRAP annex for a free valentines making workshop. They had all kinds of different patterned paper and images, fancy edged scissors, file folders to cut down as the base, and a die cut so you could make anything into a heart. It was lots of fun, even though we were some of the only adults there.

SCRAP, a donation-based creative reuse store, is a really great resource to have here in Portland. I can't help but wander through (maybe more often than needed) to discover inexpensive art supplies and office supplies, craft kits, lots of yarn, and tons of other things I didn't even know I wanted. I've got to keep on making to keep up with all the cool stuff I've found there!
