Year End Shredding...
It was time to shred all those year end files and papers that have our personal information on them. Yes, we do have one of those "shredding machines" that do a really good job. In fact we have a very professional shredder that actually works quite well. However, Mr. C decided it was time to do it a much better way. This is how Real Men Shred Papers!
Messy is best for He-Man Shredders!
Pulp all drying out and ready to be put in the recycle bin. Several hours and many piles of papers later Mr. C had shred all the files and then some. He truly enjoyed this project. Who can argue with a man and his power tools?!! This was not my type of crafty project. All I could think of was all that wonderful pulp going into the recycle without making lovely artful paper with it. I used to make paper with Arnold Grummer's Papermill supplies and my kitchen blender...now dedicated to gardening. Those were my type of paper shredding projects. Have you ever made paper for art?
We are having a Noah's Ark rainstorm. The weather man predicted 5 inches for us in about 24 hours. I think we just might come close. When you hear of a "whiteout" in a snowstorm this is definitely a "greyout" in a rainstorm. At times it is raining so hard I cannot see anything but grey for all the rain...and we are not in the clouds! We are staying indoors dry and warm. Mr. C is not allowed outside because he is very sick with the Winter Crud. He finally went to the doctor yesterday and came home with most of the pharmacy. Lots of meds and potions to help him get well. The local hospital is calling this the 100 day cough. I am doing my very best to stay well. After all I have a busy February coming right around the corner as January winds to a close.
Lets share Happy Hearts and enjoy Valentine Creative Bliss...
