I got some great freebies from work the other day.  It was kind of like trash diving, but without the actual trash diving.  Our office administrator was doing a clear out and these two dictionaries were on the side to be thrown away. 


I asked if they were going to be garbage and when she said, “yes”, I asked if I could have them.  She did look at me funny until I told her that they are good to have on hand for doing craft projects.  I think I will have plenty of dictionary pages to last me for awhile now!


I love the cover of the blue one.  It has that old faded blue color to it.


The other item was the rolodex.  Never used and it has the alphabetical dividers, as well as some blank rolodex cards.  I had saved a rolodex craft some time ago with the thought that one day I might come across one and be able to play around with it.  Now I can!  This is the one that has inspired me.

It’s always nice to get some freebies and, although these are nothing major, they are things I can add to my craft supplies – without having spent any money! 


  I’m looking forward to using them in some craft projects!  Have you gotten any little freebies lately that have made you happy?

Hi Kathy, yes these are great freebies and that dictionary is a treasure. I have the same one in blue I used in collage. Love the Rolodex project.
Thanks for stopping by. It is good to be back and visiting again. Hope you had a nice summer.
Happy Creating.

Hi Kathy! Oh, lucky you! The dictionaries themselves are lovely. I've seen some Rolodex that are decorated and it's a great project! Thanks so much for popping in to see me and hope you're off to great week.
Be a sweetie,

Good for you! I never pass up an old dictionary. And I have two rolodexs sitting downstairs waiting for inspiration. I can't wait to see what you do with yours.

Ooh Kathy, these are great freebies! I have seen different ways people are repurposing Rolodexes and now it has me wanting one too. Have fun crafting with all the freebies.
