What can you do with recycling??


I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today was a beautiful sunny day here in the PNW which definitely was a very nice change from all the rain.  I have been taking it pretty easy so far this weekend as it was a very emotional week for me.  Still having some harder days and missing Dad on those days but just taking it one day at a time.  I am keeping occupied doing a little organizing at a time and I'm making progress.  One large trash bag of GW items and one large trash bag of garbage lol.  Have to start somewhere huh :)

I had a post a few days ago about something I was going to do with some recycled items that I cleaned up.  If you remember, this was what I've collected.

So with some hot glue and twine, it now is looks like this :)  This one is the tin can in case you couldn't tell lol.

Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!!

Today's quote:  If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or whispers a word of encouragement, or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen.

Good morning Laura, although you won't every stop missing your dad, it will get easier as time goes by.

The little pen holder is cute. I especially like the checkered ribbon. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Folgers can. Have a great Sunday.

How adorable is that... thanks for telling me what it was... I kept flipping up to see... lol.

You have me on the Folgers can too... I can't even hazard a guess on that one. I am peeled to the screen waiting... hahaha

Hugs, Deb

You are always doing something crafty. I can't tear myself away from the computer long enough to do anything.
I can't wait to see what you do with the Folger's can. I have a bunch of them!

Very cute pen holder. Isn't it fun to make something so fun and functional for all free?

I know you miss your dad and some days are easier than others. My dad passed away almost six years ago and I still have days when I want to just sit and visit with him again. Hugs to you this day.
