what's the opposite of hoarding? (Three Cool Chicks, PTI)



So is it dehoarding?  Or unhoarding?  Using up my hoard.  Whatever.

What a cool theme for a blog hop over at PTI.  "Felt and Fabric Wrap."  How cozy does that sound?  And do you know the Three Cool Chicks who are getting trendy this week?  These ladies rock.  And they are brave souls who admitted that they're hoarders.  (I usually wimp out and say I "recycle...")



Anyhoo, friend's birthday is coming up Friday.  Got her a Brothers Grimm book (whole nother story) - so figured it was time to give it a wrap.

I am thrilled to present:


Cuz I love me some polka dots.  And lots of "recycling".  Where, you ask?  Packing paper, lace curtain flower layer, wall tatoo flower stems, cookie packaging corrugated white cardboard die cuts.   And for me nothing is more signature PTI than those little die cuts...  They were part of my first PTI order this summer.

New items include the fabric (which my friend will certainly use again cuz she's good like that ;), felt and buttons.  And technically the red yarn, although I've had that for a bazillion years.

Thanks for hopping by.  Looking forward to seeing what you wrapped up.



Supplies gift wrap:
Paper: recycled packing paper, cardboard, wall tatoo

Other: fabric,  yarn, felt & buttons Sew Sweet
