Yesterday’s prompt was about family favorites — which books have we shared as a family? There are quite a few we’ve shared, but the one that was the most recent is the Harry Potter series.
I started reading the series when I worked in a book store. I shared them with my then boyfriend, and then after we married and had kids, we shared them with our boys as they got old enough. My husband did most of the reading aloud, because well, he’s just better at it than I am, but I’m always up for a discussion involving Harry.
So of course, yesterday’s page was all about Harry.
You may notice that the papers and embellishments are all Halloween themed. I don’t know about you, but I don’t do many pages about Halloween, so finding other uses for what I have on hand just makes me happy. I even managed to finish up an embellishment pack with this page! Woo hoo!
This is a big reason why I recommend going easy on the heavily themed papers and embellishments. While they are lovely and fun, you don’t need a lot of them to tell your stories, so they frequently end up just taking up space in your stash. By choosing supplies that have multiple uses, you can make your stash much more versatile.
You’ve seen me use Halloween and Christmas themed papers for multiple pages this month. What are some ways you would suggest using your themed stash?
