Look What I Dug Out Of The Trash! Okay, maybe I wasn't digging in the dumpsters but I did turn other people's trash into my treasure. We recently moved to a new building at work and I heard a co-worker ask someone else on her team if they needed a stamp that said Received. No one took the bait so she chunked it. I ran over and said I'd take it so she took it out of her trash. As I looked at it I saw that it was a "Dial-A-Phrase Dater". The dates only go up to 2000 but I can work the year into another area of my layout or I can just use the phrases. I was so happy with that find but the day got even better when my work (HP) hosted a moving celebration. It was a low cost way to welcome us to the new building and they offered light snacks and beverages. Since HP products were highlighted in Sex & the City 2 they gave away 3 sets of tickets. They did the giveaway using old style ticket stubs. Sadly I didn't win ( I was 1 number away) and ironically, only men won the tickets. Regardless, after the drawing was over I wanted the used ticket stubs. I asked our Admin and she got them out of the trash! I just couldn't let them go to waste. I figure I can use them as is, paint them, mist them, the possibilities are endless. I've been re-purposing a lot of things recently, including a tissue box my mom was about to throw away 2 weeks ago. I can't wait to play with all these goodies. Check them out.
