Be careful though guys, because there are side effects of coming here; seeing beauty in bits of rubbish and making collections with excuses like "I could make something with/out of that"! You can become cursed with so many collections and a resulting reduction of space. I love it, but don't tell anyone, shh, hehe!

We made trees out of paper today and in turn made cards or battery tea light covers with them. (oh, I've just noticed the irony in that, hehe. The books we cut up were destined for land fill, honestly. One item, I hasten to add (a Birmingham A-Z) was saved from the recycling bin. The trees looks fab, you can do it with any paper and card...... some more stuff you can save.
|Pattern for the trees can be found on Hattifant's website|
On a sad note, we said goodbye to Jo today. Jo has been on her work placement from Loughborough University and She has made a massive impact on the group, not only by her presence but for the phenominal contribution she's made to fundraising, designing and creating items, organising craft fairs and posters to making a drink for each of us. Additional to this, we calculated that Jo has contributed towards raising over £1400! Good luck for your future Jo and congratulations to your next placement, we'll miss you and they're very lucky to get you x
