Let your keyboard do the walking!

I have had it with multiple phone books showing up on our doorsteps at home and at the studio. They make a good surface for drilling and pounding things, but one is plenty for this purpose! I am signing up on Yellow Pages Goes Green to stop these unsolicited deliveries. -- Beth

Here here! or is it Hear hear! ?

Thank you for this post! I dont have that problem in France, but I remember it! Maybe in these economic times someone could make some dough coming up with creative things to do while we wait for the tide of phone books to retreat. What do you think, Madame la Créative?

I have been an under-achiever in phone book repurposing! So far I've only used them for pressing leaves and flowers between the pages, and using sections of them for a protective surface while drilling. Oh my goodness - I could use the pages in lieu of tissue paper for creating paper flowers, garlands, gift wraps. Thanks for the nudge!

I TOTALLY agree! I recycled SIX of these monsters over the weekend! Maybe cracked them open 4 or 5 times in a year. What a waste of paper! Thanks so much for the link!
