Recycling history

It really is amazing how connections are made in the crafty world. For example, Cathy from Peg and Kate saw that Nicole from Hot Toffee had one of my recycled wallets and she contacted me about using the pages of a Queensland Times newspaper from September 1930 to create some customised wallets. Whilst a very delicate paper to work worth given its age, the pages were so interesting to read and the advertisements have such lovely drawings even though some of their claims seem a little outlandish with the benefit of hindsight. I love to work with customers to create something special. Thanks Cathy for passing on such a fun project!
