Is this not a fabulous idea, a terrific product, and just a great all round present for the artist in your life?
This is recycled artistry at its best. These pencils are made with recycled paper (yay!) They are fun, they are functional. They are just a GREAT idea and beautifully made. I found them at Moxie Makery which has the tagline “A shop full of awesome” and it IS.
Handmade journals. Pantone dipped pencils. Recycled eco friendly wonderfulness – this is just the sort of shop we need to support and love to find. Put some art back in the art of writing! Check these out: you’ll thank me!
Whichever one that is. The next one. And this is basically an inspiration pic.
For one thing, these are pretty. But more importantly – well, sort of importantly – you can adapt this idea in a zillion ways, most of which have already occurred to you because you are a smart cookie 🙂
Go to your fave thrift store. Buy the cheapest baskets that can be stacked, or have handles, or fit whatever nook you’re going to put them in. Stop at the hardware store on the way home and buy some spray paint – or raid your craft closet. Spray the baskets (outside if you can, because fumes).
Voila: storage that can hide clutter – and organize stuff. That can be tailored to any spot in your house, to hold whatever you need to stash.
And hey, you can adapt this idea – of course – to cardboard boxes. See, now we’re even talking about recycling and adapting paper because, you know, Paper Jewels 😉
