Hey there and happy day to you! The lovely Yvonne  from Do More With Less has given me the honor of posting today on her blog and of course I could not say no! I have seen so many talented artists she has spotlighted, not to mention her incredible talent, so just hope my post and information today will interest you.

I am sharing one of favorite things to do. Upcycling. I find inspiration from boxes, tags, wrappers, etc. on items I purchase all the time. It could be a cereal box or a clothes tag and I think to myself I need to save it because I can use this in my crafting. It definitely makes me feel better about buying those new items. :-)
My latest addiction is this:

Hills Bros English Toffee Coffee

I had quit cold turkey drinking coffee last February but then a few chilly nights in Virginia turned me on to it again last month. I figure if I indulge in one cup a day it's okay. Onto my project.
This container is perfect for holding crafty supplies, pens, pencils, markers, or a mini album.
Here's my container after a little paper, glue, and a few embellishments.




I made a little mini badge album to fit inside. So my challenge for you is to find something you have laying around your house and upcycle it. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
