How was Week 2 for me? Did I use all my paper?
Not even close!

While I didn’t use all my paper, I did use lots of strips of pretty papers which had been collecting, and some old copy and notebook paper, some glue sticks. It was a beautiful day, so I headed to my screened porch for some serious stash bashing.

Scroll down to learn more about making these – isn’t this pretty? But, as Billy Mays would have said, “That’s not all!”

And the strips became sheets, and the sheets became cards. The cards will become gifts to a nursing home which will become smiles.

Budget

Except for black and white card stock I need for work on FUNN University and for card bases, I have given myself a $50 – $100 budget from September 1st to December 31st, 2020.
Haven’t used any of my $50 – $100. In the “old days” of last winter, I would have spent that much a month.

My Take Away So Far

Stash: Didn’t make a dent in my supplies
Limiting Purchases: I am loving what I have in my shelves and enjoying them!
Using What I Have: I’ll be giving these cards to a senior home, and I know I will love that moment when I hand off kindness instead of keeping it to myself.

This is FUNN! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you will try some strip cards like these and give them to some friends you don’t know.
