I got rid of my paper scraps...oh my
Yes you read that title correctly.
I got rid of my scraps. And it is so freeing :)
If you remember this was one of my goals for the new year.
I have so many scraps (not only my scraps but my SIL's are here as well) and I feel guilty cutting into my new papers until I use up my scraps.
If you also remember I made two gift sets of 12 cards each with my scraps.
Scrap card set 1
Scrap card set 2
Here is how I store my scraps.
I store them in this hanging legal sized file folder.
Each colour has its own coordinating file folder, as well as a tag in the matching colour for even an easier view of the colours.
This is the perfect way I store my scraps...but the only thing I don't like is the little metal tabs on the hanging files, I snag my ol' lady sweater or even my pant leg.
And when that happens...its not a pretty sight or sound....as it makes me say things that shouldn't come out of a lady's mouth ;)
I have seen the file folder holders that are encased...but only for the standard paper sizes not the legal sizes, and I want the legal sizes as they fit a 12" strip of paper.
I though of putting the file case in a box...but couldn't find the perfect box.
Then a brilliant idea came to me...yes I get a few of them.
If it fits in a bag, then not only will that solve my problem, but it will also be portable :)
I take my scraps everywhere, and encourage everyone who scraps with me to use them.
So I am very happy with this...plus I had the bag already so it was free...which is also great :)
I had a few requests for my Taco Salad recipe.
So being lazy as I am, I took a picture of it ;)
I do change a few things...
1. I don't use a full package of taco seasoning.
2. You have to mix the first 3 ingredients.
3. I don't use the celery as my family doesn't care for it.
4. I also don't use a whole head of lettuce...maybe a quarter of it.
5. We use a big bottle of salsa.
Tip...if you don't eat it all in one day, then when you put it in the fridge, put it on a bit of a slant so the liquids pool away from the dip and you can scoop the liquids out the next day.
Tip #2 I chop all the veggie very fine. When I do the tomatoes I blot them with a paper towel.
Onto My Day:
My day consisted of the Walking Dead, computer and sitting on my arse all day, lol.
So excited for the new show tonight :)
Oh one more thing...I haven't been resizing my photos.
Last year they had stated that I had ran out of space on my Picasa, so I had to re-size them under 800 pixels.
I forgot to re-size them one day and they still went up..so I haven't re-sized any for the last few days...just thought I would share :)
I hope you had all had a creative Sunday :)
