Happy Birthday If It's Groovy!
If you have arrived from Deb's blog your on the right track.
Hope you wished If It's Groovy a Happy Birthday!
Deb started us out with the letter "B"
I am following her with the Letter "I" and I have few projects for you!
So, If It's Groovy begins with an "I"! Here is a "Inchie" Birthday Card for you!
Since all 2 year old's have the "I Do" Statement down to a science, especially when you are in the middle of whatever task they would like to "I Do"!
I made my son a "I Do" Checklist
I seen this a while back in FamilyFun Magazine, but tweaked to suit our needs!
If you didn't know already my scrap space has been in a transition. I had a decently organized Scrappy Space of my own that I was able to close the door and walk away. It was great especially with the little ones, who love to investigate! Those little ones are now almost 5 years old and 2 years old. Both of course, love to craft too! But I had to pack it all up!
Then, between moving from New Jersey, USA to Newfoundland, Canada a great distance. Along with the gradualness of the movement of our belongings. Some of my scrappy things made the cut and others have yet to arrive! The main items and elements missing are the lack of ease that I was used to in my storage systems, as well as any units/bins/etc. and the shelving themselves.
So the next project came in play!
One cool thing about being in Newfoundland, Canada!
Not sure if this is across Canada, but "Ice Cream Containers" are made of plastic.
Something that I am having fun with for a number of reasons:
1. I like to re-purpose things and have a bit of a recycling issue here! OK, so when I lived in NJ too! I feel there is no reason why recycling can't be done. They heat up and melt plastics to make the bottles why not reuse them.
2. Where we are living they do not recycle anything that contain dairy products. Not a good thing for the environment, but great for re-purposing!
3. Clean them up and you end up with great storage containers. I used them for yarns, strings, ribbons that I had left behind when we were staying last Summer! Sorting the farm animals and "dinkies" called here (Matchbox/Hot Wheels)
When the kids super big Crayola box of crayons wore out. I just dumped them into one of those plastic Chinese take out boxes. But that box somehow leaped off the table and cracked. Plus, somehow the crayon supply accumulated others along way. So, they now have a new home!
Next, is the other Re-purposing item.
So, pretty much I am organized as best I can out of Plastic Storage Totes, Boxes, 2 Rolling Scrapbooking Totes, a few Paper File Totes and whatever else.
So, if I want to use some embellishments they are in a big group together: eyelets, brads, bling, flowers, staples, tags, pins, etc!
Using the "Icing Container" I created a pin storage that allows me to just have a few stuck in the cushion I made and have the rest still in the original packaging with the rest of those embellishments.
Hope you enjoyed what you have seen for the letter "I" from me!
