Laura Denison at Following the Paper Trail came up with this cute mini idea and showed it on her June 17th Ustream show. I think this paint can is just adorable. These minis use one of the gift card holders found at Home Depot. Our store didn't have much of a selection. My first choice would have been the barbeque grill but they didn't have it, so I think I was lucky they had this little paint tin. I think it's really cute. Tell me what you think. (But keep it a secret. I haven't mailed it to my dad yet.) ;) I was going to actually include a gift card but I'm not sure if he has a Home Depot close to him. Since the tags are so small I cut the pictures to cover the entire back. They're the same size as a gift card.

This is a mini version of the a Junk Journal that I made to carry in my purse. I use it to hold my coupons, make lists of the things I "need" and "want" when I go craft shopping. In the "want" section I make a list of the item, who has it, and how much it costs. I also have a list going for things I want to order from Scrapadabadoo. ;) You can't see it well in the video, but the pocket holding the coupon is made from the bottom of the packaging that the covers came in. I left this book pretty flat and plain because it will just get messed up in my purse anyway. I got the tag bookmark idea from Kathryn's Ustream class here Travel Journal.

May 5, 2011. Three of my grandchildren and I walked in Chisholm Creek Park. It's a park with nature trails of various distances. We started on the paved paths but Gabby wanted to explore the dirt paths through the trees.

|We suddenly came upon a deer (circled). It's hard to see her|
because I only had my phone camera so I couldn't zoom in.
She wasn't as as anxious to see us as we were her. She
was frightened away we when tried to get closer.
|The girls find a 'fort' that someone built and left behind.|

It was a lot of fun on a beautiful, although a little hot, day. There are still some fun things to do that don't cost anything. ; )
