One Down, MANY To Go!

I have a pretty decent-sized list of projects I want to do. And that's just ones that I want to do right away... I have a ton of ideas bookmarked that I'm not even going to look through until my first list is done! So I finally sat down, physically wrote out the list of the most important ones (and/or ones I can do without having to order stuff and wait for it to arrive), and designated Thursdays during Ashlyn's nap time as my craft time. I had to set a specific day otherwise I would always put it off to do "important" things like "housework." :P

Anyway, yesterday I completed my first project since designating Crafty Thursdays! For awhile now I've wanted to turn an old Quaker Oats container into a cute, fun container to hold Ashlyn's hair things. Well, at Ashlyn's birthday party this past Saturday, a good friend of mine made Ashlyn the CUTEST bow holder! I put it up in Ashlyn's room and was re-motivated to make this container for all of her ponytail holders.

All I did was adhere some scrapbook paper around it (I used a different, coordinating pattern for the lid), hot glue some cute ribbon along the tip and bottom, and put some stickers on to spell out her name. I had all the supplies lying around already so this was free to make! It's not perfect, but I really like it. And I'm already excited to tackle my next project!


  1. Aww, I love your header!!!

    Your hair thing container turned out super cute too! I love seeing ideas like this where something that would have been trash is turned into something cute and useful!

  2. Love it!!! I wish I was crafty, but it's not something that I have ever gotten the hang of.
