peace love & recycle!

i finally created a recycling system that makes me happy. no longer do we have an old cardboard box in our kitchen for bottles and cans.

i found these galvanized trash cans at the hardware store, added some spray paint and then hand painted the recycle symbol.

the teal is for the regular trash.

and the plus side is my dumb old beagle is not longer sticking her head in the garbage due to the metal lids.

happy friday!
love nikki

i'm home safe and sound after an amazing weekend with friends.

i managed to create a few things too which i really didn't think would happen as my objective was just to hang out, but i managed to do a few crafty things somehow.

this little page for dina's circle journa (the photo is courtesy of kim brimhall) and also a new door hanging for valentine's day.

i'm looking forward to enjoying my last day off before heading back to work tomorrow.

hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
