i had asked lizzyjoan if she could include some containers that would be good for organizing things into, cos i am trying to get more organized. and she totally delivered!
i am fascinated with the surfaces of these absolutely sturdy (important for a klutz like me) nesting boxes that are coordinated but not too
matching (it bothers me when things are too matchy-matchy, but these are just right!)
i like the strange texts and mysterious photos on the sides, too!
closeup on the coasters:
i always looked at some items made like these in catalogs, and never could convince myself to buy them.
yet i also never would get around to making some!
closeup on the pincushion (cool textures!):
i am SO set for pincushions now. previously i was keeping my pins in all the wrong containers and now that will not happen. i have recently received pincushions in 3 swaps and now i can have several in different places, and i will have no excuse for ever losing pins or sticking them in the couch or stuff like that.
i forgot to take a closeup of the great and colorful coin purse made from juice containers (but you can see it in the first pic). i always wanted something out of those, and again something i would not have managed to make on my own! i'd not trust my skills to put that through my sewing machine, for one thing.
thank you, lizzyjoan!! i love it all and i hope i can get yours out to you in a reasonable time!
oh by the way, i do like both kinds that were discussed in the discussion thread, but for some reason i was kinda hoping to get some of the "loud and proud" obviously recycled things and i was so pleased to see those!
