Hello everyone! I hope this finds you well! October already! Over at Shopping Our Stash this week we have two options: create something with GREEN (any shade of green) as the PRIMARY color. Small amounts of other colors are welcome, but the main color should be green. The other option is to RECYCLE something- you name it! So, to summarize: GREEN OR RECYCLE - or both!
I have developed a fondness of a particular brand of black bean soup, and it's a great lunch to take- I nuke it at work, add after it's all hot and bubbling, I add some grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream, with a side of cornbread or Tostitos. MMMmm. And it reminds me of David Soul- who's single Don't Give Up on Us Baby had this song as it's B side. On a 45 record. That's smaller than a 33 for you young'uns- and way before cd's.
Just sharing a bit- oh yeah, now the reason I did today's project is because I had several of these cans (washed and de-labeled of course) in my bin of things to alter (doesn't everyone keep a bin of stuff to alter?), and on one my many shopping forays into Dollarama, I found two spools of neon twine. So, I decided to combine the two. I used Sookwang tape on the can- and then used a lighter to melt the ends. I like to live on the edge. Then I found in my stash of homeless pieces the Unity sentiment, and decided I like the play on words that putting it on a can would produce. Get it, right where you should be- a can holds stuff right where it should be- hahahah.
Anyway, this is the finished product, and even though my husband says it's just a can with twine, but I beg to differ. NOT JUST A CAN- but the resting place for my cropodile, one of my SU wheely things which I hope I will actually USE soon, and my poky stick thingy I use to poke out the tiny bits on dies that are unruly. Actually, my poky stick is a cheap one of these from, yes, you guessed it, Dollarama. It works great, and also unclogs bottles of glue, glossy accents, etc.
So, that's it for my recycled project. Teaser- another can will be making an appearance on Sunday. Just sayin'.
