You know what that means. The box’s time has come. It was the hard part and the easy part.
On the one hand, I was itching to clear out the box because I didn’t need the stuff in it anymore. On the other hand, I spent hours hand making a lot of crafts in that box and am attached to them.
I had to keep reminding myself of the all important rule: what doesn’t make it into the scrapbook goes buh-bye. The important stuff is in the scrapbook – that’s the point of the scrapbook.
A lot of what I got rid of were duplicates of things already in the book – extra favors, programs, table decorations, etc. It was still hard but I did it! I kept the rest of our response cards so I can make them into notecards. I also kept extra invitation envelopes to use with other stationary.
It’s all gone. Thrown out, recycled, reused, repurposed. I’m really glad to see that empty box.
