Re-Use/Recycle Everyday items

There's a really useful thread on Etsy right now on re-using everyday items, like soup cans, soda bottles, glass jars, toilet paper tubes, boxes, etc.  

I have been saving the soup cans to do something with.  I'm torn between little lanterns (putting holes in it and painting it, then putting a candle in it).  Or using them to hold tools, craft items, pens, brushes, etc.  I could probably eventually do both.  We like soup around these parts.  :)  My boyfriend did ask me recently, just how many cans I needed to save.  ;)  

Oh... almost forgot... HERE is the link on Etsy's forums.  Lots of creative ideas!

Hi All!

I doubt I have any readers yet, since I haven't told anyone about the blog yet.  But here is my first post!

I am currently trying to figure out a way to organize my craft room/office.  Any tips are appreciated.  It's pretty chaotic in there, much like my creative brain!  I'm wondering if I can get organized at home, if it will help me get organized mentally.  I will get back to you on the results of this experiment.  

I may have to take a quick iPhone pic of the chaos and upload it later.  ;)
