Scrap For Joy

I received a box of treasures from Joyce at Scrap for Joy a few weeks ago.  It was her special way of saying "get well" to me.  The wrapped packages were enough to brighten my day!  Then when I looked inside....oh my goodness!!  Treasures galore!  All kinds of scrap booking goodies and a wonderful original sketch by Michelle Palmer.  Isn't it the sweetest little bunny you ever saw?!

Joyce also included this AMAZING Somerset Studio publication....GreenCraft.  It's full of really wonderful ideas for repurposed, upcycled, trash to treasures kind of projects.  I took photos of some of my favorites.

Brown Paper Bag Ruffles ~ I LOVE these!!

A "paper" chain made out of old quilt pieces.  How pretty is this!

A very clever gift box made out of a ribbon spool....oh, how many of these I've thrown away!

Measuring tape pretty and so clever too!

Joyce also made the cutest little card for me.  Fully "RE-COVERED"!  Get it!!
Joyce makes some of the most awesome cards and she's an awesome friend too ~ thanks so much for all the wonderful things that blessed my heart in a very special way!

Joyce has been having some of her own medical issues lately...she hasn't posted on her blog for a few weeks.  I'm hoping and praying that's she'll be "re-covered" soon too!
Get well my friend!!

How sweet of her to send that. Wonderful little package of treasures you got there. I bet you're going to have fun with all of that. I really like those boxes made from the ribbon spools and I think I even have a few of those....hmmm :)

What a great package! And what a sweet thought to send it to you. I've never really looked at the Green Craft magazine. Thought it's be cheesy crafts, but those are pretty cool! And brown paper ruffles? I really like them too. Now if we can figure out what to do with them.....
