I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

recycling formula cans into cute storage containers

Formula can turned into storage for wipes.  Lately, while I am sitting around watching a movie I have started covering formula cans with twine and then embellishing them with a design using the twine.  Basically I glue and cover with twine, glue and cover with twine until its completely covered.  I tried to do a tight roll around the can but you can still see some gaps in between.  Once that is done I glue circles w/ the twine and then have the string come out to get a connected swirly effect. I also covered some to store diapers, pencils, etc....  I did have to stick the wipes in plastic bag inside so they don't rust the can.
