Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, rain….

A good thing to be sure, we needed the
drowning, but…

Dreary, dreary, dreary…

So, I took the time to gather up all sorts of
containers I have been saving and got to work
making them work for me.

When the canine grand dogs leave this
weekend, the studio is getting an over hall.
Less office, more studio.  So, in light – will
there be some soon???  I took some of those
containers and made them pretty for me to
look at and here is the result…

Keeping it contained…

Coffee tins and tin cans with a wrap of
this and that pretty up a place for pens and
weaving collage strips.  The box will hold
more snips and bits of paper. The colors make
me happy and the strips look like unruly flowers.

Unruly, just like me and my studio…

Happy rainy, maybe not,  hot, summer, winter
day depending on where you are from…

    love the recycling. I need to, dare I say, organize my supplies. I usually just say the O word (organize), my husband knows not to use that word around me.

    These turned out great; both pretty and useful. I'll save my next tins and make containers for grandson's pens and a few for myself.
