yarntainer
ok for years now (with breaks inbetween of course!) i have been buying the big container of formula. and i go through SO many i always thought...there must be something i can do with these things. i was even saving them for a minute, but they took up a lot of space :( . so i threw them away. well last night it dawned on me...make a yarntainer!!!! so thats what i did. i don't think i can fit my WIP in there, but thats ok cause i don't go anywhere with my yarn anyway. but i'm trying Krickett on regular Enfamil again to see if she can handle in now that she is pass 3 months and doesn't have all those issues. so if she can i can buy the really big can of Enfamil @ Sams! woo hoo!

i don't have a cat! but i did find a ball of yarn over by the dog bed with my sock and needles on the other side of the room trailing the ball. and when i went to pick it up it was wet. so i have doggy thefts. i couldn't believe he did that. thats why i have been on this hard to find something to put my yarn in!!! at least my kids no better! :rollseyes:

I was going to say the exact same thing!! Or maybe decoupage!! That's an awesome idea - too bad my baby is past the formula stage. You could do the same thing with a coffee can, I suppose... as long as it's clean!
