Several years ago I decided to make some tote bags out of animal feed bags. The first ones were not very attractive even though they were and are still functional.
PonderedPrimedPerfected.blogspot.com and it was picked up and featured on Roadkill Rescue and most recently, BetterAfter! What a kick in the pants! There is something fulfilling and rewarding about making something useful out of something that would otherwise be thrown away. It is something that makes me smile.
This blogspot is still in it's infancy and has lots of room for improvement, but it will come with time and study, when I am not making more totes. Hope you find something that makes you smile every day!
