junk: noun

 Discarded material, such as glass, rags, paper, or metal, some of which may be reused in some form
So I joined Pink by Designs 2 year anniversary challenge yesterday, couldn't finish all the challenges, 13 in all...whew! But I did finish 9, so not too bad. Their last challenge of the night was to use items found in our junk drawer, ick! My drawer is a mess...Here it is in all it's glory!
And after watching the Olympics and cleaning out the drawer, here it is:
wonder how long it will last? At least I can find a pen in here now!
Wrapping Barbara's birthday present using some scrap booking supplies, something I don't do often enough! I covered the cute little box with scrapbook paper, tied it up with Really Reasonable Ribbon's shimmer satin, and finished it off with a Prima flower.

pretty :)

Don't forget, you still have time to enter Project Pinterest for July!

I just went back and read your Pink Anniversary Party entries. All you had posted when I looked yesterday was ONE. I would NEVER have made even half the challenges. It would have taken me an hour to contemplate what I was going to make. Then I would have to find that PERFECT embellishment, especially since I don't have all those cool dies you have. Your pieces are adorable, and your junk drawer looked better than mine does (and I mean the pre-clean photo).

BTW, why is it in the 60s where you are, and the 80s where I am? Want to trade?

Hi Sandee, I think your junk drawer looked pretty tidy - but it does look better now. Love how you wrapped Barbara's gift, lovely ribbon and flower. Watching the swimming qualifying heats at the moment, very exciting! Crafty hugs, Anne x

Love the packaging of the.. uh... package. I'd never want to open it and just admire it as-is.
