I blame Craft Stamper Magazine for this.

Last month I was living blissfully unaware of lots of 'things'. I recycle everything I possibly can - and have done before it was 'fashionable'. I grow my own food, keep chickens and quail, and potter about trying to do some arty crafty stuff.

Cardboard tubes were saved for seed planting, cardboard for composting. But not now!

Cereal, tissue, in fact any boxes are now cut up to use for art work - covered in paper or painted for book covers - and now this!

The Craft Stamper magazine full of art work using recycled 'waste'.

I found these at the back of a drawer. They would normally have just gone in the recycle bin. But never again. I tried to throw them away, I really did, but kept retrieving them - feeling totally guilty that I wasn't doing some thing arty crafty with them.

So if the weather is bad and I can't do anything productive - then you will know where I will be and what I will be doing.

In my garden 'studio shed' trying to do something with these boxes - or one of them.

Oh dear - life is never going to be the same again methinks.
