Getting the Hang of ThingsSaturday, April 28, 2012
Often times as I cruise around Pinterest and my favorite blogs I am constantly saying to myself, "Why couldn't I have thought of that?" It just seems like some people are inherently creative and can think of 1001 ways to use a mason jar at the drop of a hat. And while I fancy myself a crafty person, I am one that has to see what somebody else did and then do it.
So as a challenge to myself, I have been actively trying to look for ways to be more handy with the things around my house instead of running out and buying something when I think I need it.
For example, I was tired of this daily scenario in my bathroom
The hairbrushes. Yes, I use all four to tame the mop on my head. And usually they lay (lie?) on the bathroom vanity which is way too small. So I have been throwing them into a small container in my bathroom closet.
But then I have to either take them out or dig around to get to things I need in that container and there is hair everywhere.
So what to do?
Enter my empty and delightfully patterned Kleenex box.
It about a minute I cut the top off and I was in business. A perfect size box to corral my brushes.
How about you? Are you one of those lucky ducks who can look at something and see a new use? Or are you like me, a sometimes copycat learning to train their creative eye? Tell me about it!
