  1. Hi, I would love to get instructions on your coffee can organizer. I see you used a pattern to start it but whatever you can tell me would be awesome. Thanks!
  2. I really make it a point to find new ideas and great recycling tips I can use everyday, and let me just say that I am so glad to find this site. I love what you did wit the cans as a towel holder in the bathroom, and it really got my attention. It's something I find new, and really creative. Making it a pencil holder kind of looks great and will definitely try the old cans we have back home out. Thanks for this post.
  3. Hey thanks for sharing the love. I really appreciate it! Love your great ideas for Coffee Cans! Now I'm going to have to see if my favourite coffee comes in a can so I can get organized! Melissa aka LostBumblebee
  4. I LOVE your website and all your crafty ideas. I for one LOVE to reuse and recycle things. One thing I do is use empty Folgers red plastic coffee cans to repot my plants. The red gives my indoor kitchen garden a nice pop of color. I've always wanted to use the metal kind but I do LOVE all the ways you've created with them and thank you for sharing, I will be incorporating some of these and you have a new follower. Have a BEAUTIFUL day!! :)
