Rainy Thursday :)

Wow, it's raining here, finally!  I love it.  My plants love it.  My dogs do not like the thunder, going to be a long loud night if Diego does not stop barking at the thunder.  Lol.  Boomer and Tara are fine with the thunder now, but Diego is not use to the lighting and rain.  See he is only 11 months old and hasn't experienced much rain, lighting, or thunder in his 11 months of life.  He sees rain and chases it, yes, he runs outside and tries to catch it with his mouth.  Sigh, crazy little dog.  :)

Today is my Friday!  Yay.  Taking tomorrow off work because it is my mom's 84th birthday!  How awesome is that!  What a blessing it is to have her with us all.  We will take her out and pamper her for the day and the rest of the weekend.

Ok, now for the best part of blogging, sharing projects. 

I wanted to share this project I made.  I love to recycle.  My family does not like to, but I sort of encourage them to recycle.  I am all about 'save the Earth' and 'Go Green'.
What I don't put in the recycle bin, I recycle for projects.  Here is something I believe most of us have.
before
Do not throw these away, they make great containers for storing almost anything.  Pencils, buttons, ribbons, just about any emblishment you have, beads, you name it - you can store it.  Also the large and small Pringles packaging can be used to decorate for storing containers.

You can also decorate the container with almost any color and theme you want.  I used designer duck tape to coordinate with my scrap/craft room!
Just strip the plastic label off (that you can throw in the recycle bin) and you end up with a plain white plastic container.  Michael's sells a lot of colors and designs of duck tape.  I of course must stay within my color and room theme :)  so, I used the zebra duck tape.

Next step just cover the container with the duck tape (I went around it).  Then decorate with bling, flowers, stickers, vinyl, words, anything you like.  Keep in mind you can make it for kids schools, for teachers, for your office, for just about anything.

These are a couple of my final results.

How cool is that? I love these and decorate what I can and give as gifts and use many for storing my favorite embellishments. It makes it easy to take and pack with you when you are on the go also.

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope you enjoyed this simple but crafty project. Have a great evening and I would love to hear from you.

Until next time,
