Using what I have

I have sooo much stuff! I have wood shapes that I cut with my scroll saw, picture frames, glass plates and jars, fabrics, wood candlesticks etc etc. All of it is hiding in bins, and on  shelves in my craftroom and my little storage room out back!
I decided I am going to use it up or give it away! So, I grabbed a couple wooden picture frames and painted them. Then I painted two glass plates, and a glass salt and pepper set all in 2 days! Feels good to be able to create and clear things out.
..... be able to get it done! : )

Old Records

I didnt want to go out and buy easter baskets this year. Seems they end up "in the way". I donated a stack of them to a local charity group and decided I was going to make my own.
 What and How.
Then I had an "aha" moment.
I went to the thrift store and bought some old Vinyl record albums. I actually have a lot of albums... and I still have my turn table so "no way am I getting rid of mine!"Get rid of my Elvis way...never!

 I wiped the record clean with a paper towel,Then I placed a glass bowl on a cookie sheet and layed the record evenly on top. Put it in the oven and let it melt.
 I placed a larger bowl on top while still warm to shape( did this after I took it out of the oven).

They were a hit : )

 After the goodies are gone you can use the "bowl" for a catch all.
