Cleaning: A New Kind of Treasure Map….

And you don’t have to follow some tricky trail to get to where “X” marks the spot either!  Just clean or organize something from your past….

A week ago I found myself going through an extra-large rubbermaid storage tote. It housed a number of my favored arts and crafts as a kid. I had so many boxes of beads it was a bit crazy and of course most of them had spilled onto the bottom of the tote.

While fishing in the Bead Sea, I found an old board book and immediately new I wanted to alter its pages. (Thank you Pinterest, LOL)!

Side Note: Most of the time when I keep things they get used a lot later on or worse forgotten about! So this is a personal broken record, LOL!
Hmmm, hoarder…well maybe?!

I came back to my current dwelling place and immediately began to alter the board book. So far I’ve added a denim book cover and belt closure. I used denim deco tape to adhere the denim.

I have 10 or eleven more pages to fill before its contents are truly altered.

Update: I am almost done with my board book and will do a couple follow up posts to this post over the next couple of weeks. 😀
