Great! OK. Raise your hand if you saw this and as soon as you possibly could ran here to get some of your very own teeny, tiny galvanized bins?
Yep. I thought so. And guess what? My hand is raised, too! I think I walked past them a few times ... but for heaven's sake ... that dollar section is right at the front of the store. Every time I walked past them, I heard them calling me. "Take me home ... Cathy has some ... Ali has some ... Cathy's cool... Ali's cool ... do you want to be cool or not?" I mean really, how much willpower can one girl have?
Eventually I caved, forking over three bucks for three of my very own teeny, tiny galvanized bins.
Now, I know you're out there. You saw it, too, didn't you? Come on ... tell me I'm not alone. You thought, just like I thought: "Cathy has these. Ali has these. I must have these, too!" And you got them. Am I right?
I think I am and it really makes me feel better about myself to believe I am not alone in this teeny, tiny galvanized bin saga. (And ... between you and me, I've seen these little bins in your homes and in photos you send me. I know, you could have thought of this on your own ... but really, you saw it on Cathy's blog, too. Right?)
OK. Good. You can put your hands down. Alright, let's have one more show of hands. How many of you have put these tiny little gems to use?
Ah ... well, I'm pleased to announce, my hand is at long last raised high and proud. I have *finally* found a use for my $3 investment! Big news. Yes? And guess what, it's this week's creative challenge! Yippee! It's a quick and simple one if you jumped on the teeny, tiny galvanized bin band wagon. A bit tougher if you didn't. But, anyway ... here she goes.
Fun and simple! (My favorite kind of project.) It took just a few minutes and a few on-hand supplies to create a functional, little organizing tool.
So what's this for? Well, remember these? All the little notes go from the distractions pad into the mini in box. Ultimately the items on the notes get transferred into here onto the appropriate list. Now, certainly I could put everything right into the Circa --- but my goal with the distractions pad is the quick-and-easy-get-it-out-of-my-head-now approach so I can keep focused on what I'm really working on. And ... I don't take my Circa to bed with me or bring it into my kitchen. So, I have three mini in boxes --- one in the office, one in the laundry room (steps away from the kitchen) and one in the bedroom. Voila!
Have fun and have a great weekend!
