I’m a selective hoarder. I selectively hoard things like wine bottles, greeting cards, ticket stubs… If it has a memory to it, I keep it. Thankfully, in the world of Pinterest I can feel like it’s been for beautiful crafting! I got my ideas from the pins below. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/114560384245054345/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/114560384242217470/ I simply picked up […]
