I recently did some summer cleaning in my office, largely because tackling the basement maker space is way too daunting. My drive to organize goes in fits and starts, with more of the former than the latter. I sifted though close to seven years of cards that I’d organized in a binder. Let’s just say over ten years of blogging events, national conferences, and trade shows I’ve met a lot of people! I kept close to 300 cards, people whose names and/or blogs at least rang a bell with me. But I even more. But before I swept them into my recycling bin, I noticed that Jen Fulda’s card had illustrated instructions for making cubes out of business cards.
“Here. Do this,” I directed The Young Maker Teen. He made cube. And then another and another. and the next thing I knew the markers were out and my dining room floor looked like this.
And then we (I like to think I had some influence here) decided to go all Angry Birds. Building towers and catapulting objects at them in the name of destruction. And fun!
But the weather was nice and friend summoned him to the park so my office floor continued to look like that for next 24 hours. I’m calm about stuff like this. My husband, however, gets all huffy when I create messes in the name of cleaning. That’s why my office has a door.
Entropy- it’s unavoidable!
Try this yourself with these instructions for building cubes out of business cards.
