View Full Version : Are You Trashy Like Me?

LOL - - I thought that might make a few of you look!

Seriously though, since I've begun doing hybrid goodies, I am so incredibly interested in the trash! I keep thinking, "Now, I could embellish that container, and that would make an awesome little gift!" I promise I'm not digging in the trash - just not throwing the good stuff away :giggle:

Today, I saved a plastic peanut butter jar and the glass jelly jar. They'll be in the gallery soon, no doubt. Transformed with digi supplies and filled with goodies!!

What have you been saving??

I annoy the heck out of my DH. I keep everything! Not scrapbooking related but just today I made my DH save a box from a ride on toy we got Jack so I could make it into a costume. :rofl:

coffee cans.

and i haven't even finished a hybrid project yet. :laught16:

i've started a few- mostly related to evan's birthday next month. the coffee cans will be used for something else, though. thinking pencil and crayon cans for the boys, and i have a few jelly jars that would make nice banks for the boys.

I have SO many coffee cans. Last year, our church needed coffee cans, and I was able to donate about 8 of them. I feel like a hermit sometimes. I currently have about 6 empty coffee cans in my pantry.

Oh, and Crystal Lite containers. Probably about 12 of them. Falling out of my gift wrap closet.

I am so trashy.

Don't forget the tins that sb supplies come in:

Maya Road tins (the chipboard shapes, not the albums, come in tins you could use in hybrid)

Prima flowers come in containers you could

Queen and Company embellies come in tins

I'm totally trashy...but in a good way...I save so much stuff that I eventually have to go through and throw some of it away :)

Oh yeah - I'm trashy! I don't do hybrid though - LOL!

Oh I had been saving the Crystal Lite containers, too, Kelleigh! I finally let my dh throw away my box of them yesterday - probably 20 containers. They were driving him crazy :)

Tamra, you were supposed to HIDE them. My husband has no idea how much trash I hoard. If he opened the closet, he would be appalled!

I have a tough time hanging on to much. BUt I have to recycle. And do lots of sales on ebay.

I am working on a Planters Peanut can now... I put my first jelly jar in the sink to soak the wrap off ... it is a beauty :) trying to decide what to do with it :)

so between this site and the Shabby girls I am getting trashy ;)

I've been saving all different kinds of glass jars (after I put them in the dishwasher of course) but it's really just to serve as containers for my scrapbook room...uh, when I get it organized. :laught16:

I totally save things. I've also noticed that I'm wondering around places like walmart trying to find things that could be altered. It is fun to look at things with fresh eyes!

I was getting too good at saving (and really bad about not making something out of it) that I started to just recycle everything instead. :giggle:

I saved a Converse shoe box. It's awesome looking and it'll fit my ribbons oh so nicely!

My son's loves powder milk, and I'm saving the cans... hehehehe
