Flowers in a Can

Here are a few things about me that you may not know:

1. I love crafts.  With that being said, it brings me to my number 2.
2. Bright, fun patterns attract me (Great marketing strategy for stores, geez!  AKA Target)
3. Since I love fun funky patterns, this sometimes leads me to paper hoarding.  Now let me clarify on this one!  Hoarding is a strong word, so I will say that every thing is nicely organized and in stacks, grouped by color.  This sometimes would lead to a head ache due to the over whelming appearance of color.  I look at this as being more of holding on to inspirations or future projects that I see in magazines.
4. I love flipping through magazines and ripping out pages of fun ideas or images I find.
5.  I love DIY projects.

This leads me to my DIY project for today.  I was doing my usual searching for inspiration and came across Wabi-Sabi Wanderings blog that had the cutest idea for re-using any old can's that you were about to throw away and recycle.  Sometimes I wonder where these people get these ideas... so jealous.  You can read the step by step details by checking them out at


  1. I have some cans I am going to work on this weekend. Great ideas!!

  2. Oh! Thank you for the mention. Did you ever make one? If so, I'd love to see it.
