Beautiful Rubbish! Trash to Treasure.





You get a 2 for 1 today! I came back into the Living Room to take a drink of my water, only to find it filled with the crayons my 2 year old had been coloring with. Well, at least she didn't color on the wall, I thought to myself. It is so like a 2 year old to think to do something with an everyday thing you may not have thought of before. So, I decided to do the same thing myself. I got out my rub-ons, which sat undisturbed in their beautiful package since receiving them for my Sale-A-Bration bonus. I hesitantly pulled them from the package, and then, like a Band Aid, tore them from my list of things to look at and never touch-and actually put them on something!!!!! To make things even more difficult,(anxious breathing now) I pulled out the trash can from underneath my craft table, which I had lovingly adorned with one of those hair-tie flowers I don't wear anymore but couldn't get rid of, and Slice!, cut them up and started sticking them on. Once I started I couldn't stop. How about a flower here, a fleurish there, a Butterfly! It was addictive, and fun! It even matched my Black and White theme (punctuated by hot pink, not seen here). Oh the satisfaction, the adrenaline, the sheer pleasure of the freedom. Enters my 2 year old "OOOOOOOooooooooooohhhhhh!!!" (Squeal of girly delight). Need I say more? Take yours out, rub them on something. Squeal a little bit-everybody needs a little Beautiful Rubbish in their life.
