Looking beyond things.


Scrappers are sooo gifted.
We have a pair of powerful eyes.
And that special eyes 
can see beyond things.
If you are not realizing it yet,
don't fret.
It's inside you,
just waiting patiently
to be out and trained.


Yesterday 
we bought more shirts
that my husband loved,
simple shirts from Giordano.
They had new packaging,
yet nothing is struck me 
until I opened them at home
and let the shirts out
to be washed.
Then something happen.
Looking at these empty 
packagings & cool 'essentials' 
print on the side
really made my eyes smile.
My special old trained eyes.



Do you?
Do you see what I see?
Yup. Potential.
Potential things to reuse.
So I fill in the plastic
with buttons, and more buttons,
which I haven't put in jars yet
since it will take too much 
space on the shelves.
And I covered the hanging
with left over papers.



I am happy.
My buttons are happy.
They safely tuck in 
the shelves now,
(plan to hang these 
somewhere soon)
waving to me 
every time I pass by.


Can you see them smiling?

About me

  • I am a woman who fell in love with papers and words long enough before with boys. Therefore, scrapbooking, writing, reading, and art journaling are just things that complete me.
