I’ve been known to look at utter crap and carefully stow it away for another day, “Maybe I can make something with this button, used dental floss and tampon box. If only I had gum wrapper…”. Yeah, sometimes I get downright MacGyver. That being said, I’ll never understand how or why some decided to create things out of trash just because they can. Take this post on craftster.com (grrrrr yet another -ster site) entitled, More SODA CAN Trinkets. That means, that this person actually had previously posted something maybe entitled, SODA CAN Trinkets. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I sorta like, but will never actually carry those purses made from aluminum cans. That’s just way too much like advertising for my tastes. What I will not do is collect pull tabs from cans just to make a belt, purse or ugly brooch.
I think what kills me the most about that site are the comments. The people were gushing over the trinkets. Then you get to the last comment, where she suggests Arizona Tea cans and posts a link to her items created with aluminum cans.
Then all I hope for is some money to buy those super cool accessories made by doxiemama. And, if you’re feeling bad for not buying me a birthday gift, here’s a link to her Etsy shop: Little Libelle.
