Down to just four letters left in the 10th Annual A to Z Challenge and I struggled with a topic for today. You would think that W would be an easy letter to find something for and at first I was going to use Wedding and show some cards I’d made that you could use for a wedding like this one:
But that didn’t seem so very exciting. Then I thought about Washi tape. I certainly have a lot of that:
But that didn’t seem very exciting either. Finally I thought of Weeding as in weeding out supplies that I’ve had around for years and years and actually decided I’m not going to use so I should just let them go. Like spools and spools of thread. If I am getting rid of the sewing machine, I certainly don’t need all the thread. Fortunately I have some friends who took them.
Or piles of yarn. Not going to make anything out of this any time soon. I really wanted to make something with the rainbow yarn but no matter how many times I tried nothing came out right.
Even the pieces of yarn for latch hook rugs. I’ve made some but what the heck was I keeping all this for?
I even have some old Monopoly game pieces. Some of these are collectors items since they are no longer made for the game but I’m gonna let someone else collect them!
So now I have a lot of empty containers and I’m going to weed through those as well and keep the ones I like and give the rest to the second hand stores. I guess you could say for the letter “W” I’m just gonna “Wing” it. Thank goodness I have X, Y and Z (maybe) under control! See you tomorrow.
