I See Possibilties


Call me "Trash Whisperer".
I hear empty (or nearly empty, or sometimes they are even yet unopened!) packaging murmur to me.
"Use me."
"Yessss, use me."
"I can be be something else."
"Something so much more exciting!"
"Then you can blog about it, yessss, blog about it..."


And so this is why I walk around distracted all day and get little done.
My husband fears that I am getting senile on him, when in fact it is creativity on overdrive.
Bet you didn't know you could make "parties" from "pasteries".
Scary, isn't it?

brilliant repurposing ... we are birds of a feather ... I do not enjoy getting rid of boxes of any kind, eventho we recycle them, I always feel they have potential ... like the pasta boxes with cute windows!
LOVE your tags ... way to enjoy pasteries more than once!

Mmmmm, yummy looking tags! Slightly disturbed about the number of voices you hear from packaging, but I'm sure it's quite normal-ish. Grocery shopping must be exhausting with all those conversations going on! xx

LOL My daughter worries about me walking outside because I'm always looking down for things I can pick up and reuse! I threw a box away a few hours ago....instant oatmeal...it pained me greatly...

Thank goodness!!!
I really thought maybe I was on the edge of LaLa Land - my husband certainly thinks so as I sit in the evenings cutting out images with my tiny scissors!!

I can't throw the old cartons out either, I think maybe I could do this or that.
However my older son said the other day "Mum you've got far too much junk everywhere".
He's probably right, I'll sift through it tomorrow - maybe.....
