HAPPY FRIDAY!! I am so happy to have today off. My to do list is long, and all I really want to do is retire to my stamp cave and PLAY. However, I better tackle my list first. Before I do though, I wanted to share a quick post featuring an item I repurposed.
Last summer I found a few tins that originally contained "snuff" while hitting a few rummage sales with the girls. I knew I would eventually find a way to alter them. I threw a few sponge daubers in one and it has been on my stamping desk. I recently decided to organize the daubers a bit more so I would designate a certain one for my favorite ink colors. This is where using the tin comes in. This is what the tin looked like to start with:
I know the pic is BAD! However, I simply put as many as would fit in the tin...they snap magnettically to the bottom really well...and put the labelled daubers over the top of the "pegs"! Pretty nifty huh? The daubers stay put and I have a color for each ink pad I use alot. Another fun thing about this was I found out that the whole tin magnetically snaps to another tin when stacked, so I can add tins with more items in them, and they stay together for easy storage. This is what the tin looked like all altered:
Hope you enjoyed the little tip.....Have a wonderful Friday...and a Blessed Mothers Day to all you mom's out there. I will be back soon, with a canvas or two I have been playing with!
