shera's border

woohoo!!! feels so warm and fuzzy when some little thing you did, inspired someone else to do some other little things :))

remember my recycle paper tutorial? i am so delighted that shera of shera's border took on the challenge and made some herself... and i can tell you it looks totally awesome!! this was the comment she left in my comment box on the 15 july :

"hey, i started collecting papers which i normally throw into the trash... thanks for the idea...hope can make smthing nice out of the papers :)"

and today i got this from her :)

"hey there.... i tried out my 1st batch.. oh it was so fun.. check it out in my blog ^^ thanks for the idea and inspiration :)"

of course i went straight to her blog to take a look ... :D and i was utterly delighted at what i saw. she had a picture of the "cold cuts" all lying to dry on the floor!! and even more than that ... shera created 2 lovely cards out of the recycle paper she made :) and they are beautiful!!

ahhh... it felt so good and i was so touched that something i did just inspired something so lovely out of another artist, and in a small way ... we did a little something for mother earth. when there was just 1, now there are 2 people in malaysia who wouldn't throw away scrap paper ... but recycle and reuse them AND make pretty things out of 'trash' :)

please go to shera's blog and take a look. not only is she a wonderful and creative young lady, she's enterprising and she cares :) shera makes lovely handmade cards, and now i know at least 2 of her cards, were made by recycling old paper!! woohoo!!!! here's the link :)

that's one of them cards :))

thank you shera :) for inspiring me !!

happy pimping! :)
