Everyone keeps random objects for future crafting don't they?
A few years ago, we transferred all our music from CDs onto the computer and mp3 players. Of course, I didn't throw out the CDs seeing far too much potential in them as a craft supply!
Over the years, I've added to my craft CD collection with DVDS and CDs as my girls have grown out of various song and movie choices.
Now look at what I have...
At a rough count, about 250 CDs!
I like that they're shiny and was thinking of some kind of outdoor shiny mosaic project. A couple of years ago on a family holiday to Bali - I saw large statues covered like glitter balls - and in my mind, I kind of imagined I could perhaps create something similar to stand proud and glittery in our backyard..
Tacky? maybe - but I'm a sucker for anything shiny and glittery!!
However - here's the dilemma.
My daughter's school is putting on a production of 'At the Bandstand' and the art teacher who is working on the production set, has asked for donations of old CDs - and lots of them!
I'm in the midst of a challenge which involves using up my stash. I want to clear our house out and really should just donate these CDs to the school.
But there's a part of me doesn't want to part with all that shiny potential!
If I keep them, I need to USE them - either way this stash is going to get used up!
What would you do??
