The Crafter's Devotional: Days 39, 40, 41, & 42

Catalog Clippings
How many catalogs do you receive, peruse, and toss? I get at least 3 a month. That's a lot of wasted paper if you think about how many catalogs go to other homes and end up in the garbage. Imagine what you could do with all of that "waste". Perhaps try using some Mod Podge. Cut out your favorite images in the catalogs and make inspiration boards with them.
 Or maybe make a homemade birthday card.
 If you can't find anything else to use it for, recycle it, don't trash it...or simply unsubscribe.

The Sound of Horse's Hooves
"The horse symbolizes freedom and the power that comes with being free". Get inspired by them.

Playing Hooky: Crafty Field Trip
Simple: Take a day off and roadtrip to a new destination. Scour the local niches and let your creative mind take it all in.

Alex and I went to Waynesville, NC a few weekends ago. It wasn't a place we would have chosen, but there happened to be a great deal at a resort and we jumped on it. We stayed at the pictured above, Waynesville Inn and our room overlooked the green. It was fun to watch the golfers.
 There was a cute downtown in which we shopped wandered. Great deals in this town!
Why do people sell these fakittys?
Waynesville even had a fancy Walmart
All in all, the trip was inspirational if not utterly relaxing.
