On Saturday my local artshop gave me permisson to freely take anything from a skip-full of stuff they were throwing away. (I wanted to buy some sheets of perspex and they were embarrassed that they'd thrown them all away that morning as they'd just relocated their picture framing business). So we spent the next hour sifting through a skip and salvaged some enormous pieces of mount board, as well as loads of sheets of perspex - clear and frosted! My mum kindly drove to collect us and pointed out I now have enough card for a lifetime!

Then on Sunday I picked up a massive tub of buttons from a Boot Sale for £1. I sorted them into different categories and put them in pretty saucers. They look like sweets.
