I love coffee and I am addicted to the ease of use of the Keurig. I was introduced to the one-cup wonder by my boyfriend and I have worshipped its convenience ever since.
I also have a love affair with hazelnut creamer, and pairing it with my coffee brings the need for coffee stirrers. Did you know these things are terribly cheap and abundant?
You can get 10,000 for about 30 bucks from an office supply store. No, I did not buy 10,000 coffee stirrers. I jacked a box of 1000 from my employer (with his blessing of course) because I had a fantastic idea on how I could use the stirrers in my painting.
I also saved a cardboard box that used to contain a cord or whatever, and it was the perfect size for my idea. Some other scraps of cardboard from my recycling pile were useful as well.
I used tacky glue to attach cut straws to the bits of cardboard, and now I have some fun stamps to use with my paints.
I encourage you to look around your house and see what useful bits you can turn into printing material.
Happy crafting, my lovelies!
