Crafty Stuff

I love the new line of Martha Stewart stuff at Michael's stores. The website of the related line will open in May, Martha Stewart: Crafts. Most of the stuff is scrapbooking-related items, but there are kits for children's parties, stationary, favors, invitations, photo albums, keepsake boxes, etc.

I tell ya, Martha (or at least her people) is one smart cookie. All of the stuff goes together. I didn't realize it until I kept looking at the different things. Then I realized one thing went with another thing which went with another thing. For example, all of the little bits and pieces, and tags, and tapes, and embellishments, etc. all come in packages that have holes punched in the bottom of them. Then I realized that the little free crafty idea pages that Michael's always have (the ones for this line of things) all have holes on the sides of them. Then I realized that there were storage binders that until I saw all the punched holes, I hadn't known what they were for! They have 6 rings, so that all the small, medium, and larger packages all can fit neatly into your very own little crafty binder!

Well, since I am not a big scrapbooker, a big chunk of it didn't apply to me. I did find some little matchbox-sized boxes to put together that are for favors. What I will use them for I have no idea! I also got a set of 3 paper journals in cute patterned covers. I am loving the keepsake collector's boxes too, but I didn't buy one since I can't think of what to use one for.
