The Project Box

Here it is, a cigar box filled with stuff......

Here is what is in the box, what a lot of junk eh?
I'll give you a closer look

There are 17 useless old CD's, you know the ones that come in the mail, and a few that are corrupted and a couple with scratches.

There is an old Kitchen Cupboard Handle

2 used Children Board Books

20 Disgarded Slides

An Empty Altoid Tin and 3 sealers from canning jars

Sorry no partridge in a pear tree, maybe it's in the next box....

These are my projects for the weekend.

I started making project boxes in an effort to clear away the piles of stuff from my work area that I was going to try someday.

I have about 30 boxes filled with weird stuff, recyclables, unfinished projects and doo dads.
I made a shelf in my studio that I piled these boxes on so that it looks neat and keeps everything tucked away.

The object of the project box is to choose a box and deal with it until it is done. I must deal with everything in the box including the box unless I can refill the box to clear off my table.

So this will be my first box to work with.

How convenient is it that I am going to a Scrappers Croppers Convention for a couple of days this weekend eh? 12 hours a day of creating!

So unlike the scrappers who take their lovely albums and beautiful children, pets, and holiday pictures, I am bringing this Project Box.

So do you think I am going to get a few raised eyebrows?

At the last convention I went to, I actually had women walking away from me backwards like I was evil or something. LOL

Anyway, I will post some new pics on Sunday or Monday to show you what I did with these items.

Don't forget to leave me a comment to be entered into my big draw box
This is Post # 97 only 3 more til I make my draw.

I am not going to revise the entry list this time, because I only had 2 more comments 1 from Donna and the other from
Kat (who is leading with entries)

Have a Very Creative Weekend Everyone!

Who ate all the Altoids?! Dang!

Guess Who!?

Mercedes said...

Wow, 30 tins!! I know Altoids tins are apreciated between european stitchers to do cover with some needlework, just the right size to keep needles , little scissors, or just for the pleasure to decorate it.
I mean the rectangle Altoids tins. No seen here in Spain

Scrapbooking with a box of junk! Are you nuts? I'd like to join you.

Sherry/Cherie said...

This is a great way to challenge yourself and stay on top of your "stuff"...sooooo how many raised eyebrows were there when you displayed your "project"!?

Simple Journeys said...

Your project box is very intriguing. That is my kind of art--only I use mostly paper 'junk' for my altered books. Can't wait to see all the finished projects!

Shari said...
