Contemplative and creative cleaning journey, thinking on the word “call.” In addition to cleaning I want to do some upcycling as a craft connected to making the home more functional. This pocket for take-out menus and coupons is made from one of those plastic zippered bags curtains come in. To stiffen it, I cut a plastic box from some battery powered votive candles down to size to line the bag, then placed the “original” art in between the clear plastic layers. The owl is copied from an owl on the tablecloth I got from Big Lots for $2. In the Tightwad Gazette books that were out in the early 90s, author Amy Dacyzyn (sp?) says “Frugality without creativity is deprivation.” I love that quote!
