Today I am in the right most cupboard above my work table. I have four cupboards on this wall and this is the one that has been the hardest to get to because I have my other video making light attached to one of the door handles.
Oh, look at this! A clean work surface. This photo was taken in October. I needed to see that! There is still hope for a clean work table.
Are you ready for this? Seriously! Are you ready. I’m not. There are a couple of sad stories about to be told with this cupboard.
The cardboard box to the right on the bottom shelf. I hang my head in shame. This is the box I received from my friend, Lynn, who lives in the UK. She sent this to me for Christmas of 2010. The bag of chocolate candy Maltesers are still unopened. Don’t think I will be opening them now. Lynn was so sweet to send them to me. They are similar to the “Whopper” candy malt balls in the US.
The little box to the side of the candy is one hand made by Lynn. A gorgeous box that holds delightful sparkly bits inside.
Lynn also included some very interesting photo frames that I have been wanting to use but could never remember where I had put them
Now you know my shameful secret *sigh*.
Moving along. In this cupboard are numerous empty tin cans. Don’t have a clue why I have saved them. One of them I think will work for my embossing powders.
The next crazy tale is a box over flowing with motel room keys. While doing my truck driving job we spent about 250 nights a year away from home. Someone told us our private information was put on the magnetic strip of the hotel key. Of course….we panicked and kept all of the keys.
I had a brilliant idea. Alter the motel keys and make Christmas themed tags from them. That is still an idea I am going to work on. Make them everyday tags as well.
Working at getting my floor cleared so I don’t kill myself in this mess of a room. I decided this cupboard would be the right place to hold all of my book binding supplies. Chipboard, lined note pads, Post-It-Notes, scrap chipboard, scrap pieces of cardboard, scrap pieces of Foam Core board, and other similar items. So the first item to get up off the floor is my stash of chipboard.
Now I can say that my book binding supplies are all in one place. I even found a home for the beautiful cardboard boxes I made back in October.
Oh and I will be keeping this giant postage stamp from the UK. See. Christmas of 2010
Do you have any dirty little secrets hiding in your cupboards? I don’t know about you but mine seem to be chalk full of them
