2011 in 2011 I have been sorting through a lot of "stuff" in our house and trying to figure out what to do with it. Sometimes I find alternative uses for things but mostly I donate, giveaway, recycle or dispose of it. I think because I don't really know what I would do with them. I mean I sit there and look at an old box from wipes and think it would be cool as a storage container for craft supplies or ribbon or something.
The book Recyclo-gami by Laurie Goldrich Wolf offers 40 crafts that you can make at home or school to upcycle your everyday "stuff". These are really great crafts to do with your kids on those rainy spring days or for a green Mother's Day gift! It is a fantastic way to repurpose items that you would normally toss out.
Now let's get down to the fun stuff! My friend Sam made some cool art supply containers out of old cans and cookie containers.
