Whenever I have an empty jar, either plastic or glass, I despise throwing it away. I then go through three stages…
1. Oh just throw it away.
2. No, I can use it for something with the kids
3. Just put it here on the counter for WEEKS to decided (I typically end up throwing it away)
Well, not today! I have ended my streak and have decided that I will do something with my jars either in a creative manner or in a bag in the garage to take to my local recycling center.
This afternoon I had a spaghetti jar cleaned and ready to go. What did I do with that jar you ask, I made a place for my extra buttons. An amazing idea, I know! However, allow me to take a moment and explain the reasoning for buttons. Part of my “growth” in becoming more homegrown is to learn how to sew and I have a type of sewing tin that has an odd assortment of items. I am now separating that tin in order to gain some control for the day when I actually get a sewing machine….
Anyways, here is the end product. It’s not too much but it’s my first jar
Scrapbook paper, decoupage, and some puffy paint
