Have I mentioned my hate of waste? I hate waste. But above all things, I hate pretty waste the most.
I can get rid of egg shells and cardboard tubes, but when they come in pretty packages, I can’t do it, I can’t. Eggshells end up in the garden and cardboard boxes end up ask desk caddies and I end up spending half the night thinking about all the cat food cans sitting in the recycling bin.
It’s a problem.
My least favorite thing to waste is craft supplies. As a craft blogger, I am lucky to get samples of a lot of products sent to me (most of which I give away) but on the occasion that I should use the product, it feels like a gift and thereby I have to use alllllllllll of it. It’s like if someone gave you a concert or theater ticket and you left at intermission. Not cool.
My recent work with ILoveToCreate has prompted me to do a lot of tie dye projects lately, which is all kinds of rad, however, it prompts me to have these plastic bottles with little droplets of dye on the inside. Something must be done!
I could rinse them off and chuck them in the recycling bin, orrrrrr, I could add water and mail tags for an overnight jacuzzi rendezvous for two.
Make that an overnight jacuzzi rendezvous for 500.
And at the end of the night it would look like this.
My long term plan is to keep a ready stash of tags for gifts down the line, but my selfish plan is to use them as hang tags on some of the baskets in my workroom. I have a lot of baskets. They require a lot of taggage.
