The Three R's

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - I'm not the best at it, but I sure try hard. I've been reading some of the blogs out here and, boy, are there some good ones with incredibly creative ideas for reusing and recycling! One of the things I ask myself before trying an idea is, "how useful is it?" It doesn't make sense to try all these cool ideas if I'm just adding clutter to my house. I found this and decided to give it a try when I had some down time between making market bags. Very cool, Meg! Thank you. I used smaller cans (from making black bean salsa) and cut the dimensions down accordingly. I already had the muslin and the embroidery floss. Soon I'll have the best looking craft room around, don't you think?


  1. they are awesome! you do have the most sylin' craft room around.

  2. Hi there,

    Thank for your comment. I didn't remember seeing any craft mags at the airport. But then I had two kids with me. So I've just checked with the other contributors of Japan craft journal. Sorry, but they didn't see any either! And with only 4 hours you won't have time to get into the city and back. What a shame, so close but so far...

  3. These are great. You've inspired me to make some.
