      If so let's see them!

      "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        I up-cycle the containers that spring mix greens come in and the basil from Trader Joe's, also the dish washer tabs I but at Costco come in a tub that I use 🙂

          I use those lettuce tubs too.

          I do use the plastic tubs our Chinese take away comes in and nice biscuit tins. But I do like to buy wood/MDF/chipboard cabinets and drawers like Kaisercrft ones to 'make over' and then use after. Here's a photo of a wood cabinet that came from Ikea, after I had covered rather colourfully with Teresa Collins Fabrications Collection.

            It looks wonderful Ginny! Those little cabinets hold more than I realized.

            I just did one last night. I found some KaiserKraft board sets on sale and used G45 Bohemian Bazaar paper.

            The second one I made 5 years ago to hold my acrylic blocks. It has held up pretty well except for the lost L. If you make the base bigger all the way around, it won't tip over. The paper is Basic Grey Wisteria. They used to have beautiful paper.

                  This is the only one I've made so far. It's suppose to be a recipe box but I keep my photos in it.

                  Yes I've got 2 lined up on my table, in my craft room, with everything to hand when I need it! I've got a box similar to Sue's as well that I keep all my masks and stencils in, so they are all together and easy to look through.

                    You gals have made such pretty containers! I just stack my sad little plastic tubs in my closet 🙂 I don't have any real room on my desk for all these pretty little boxes.

                      Oh my goodness!!! These are all so pretty!!!!!

                      I keep my (unpacked) kit in a thingy from Kaisercraft, otherwise I love my Snapware tubs. I'm afraid that I need all that room these days.
