you have heard of second life - basically giving something a second chance to be used as something different.
I have discovered these wonderful plastic crates. I am giving them a good wash and sanitise - and re-using them as 'project boxes'. They are just brilliant. They are a good size - and nice and deep so that stuff does not fall out - and much stronger than seed trays (which I was using) - but being plastic they are still very light weight.
I am using them for the pencil rolls I am making so that they are not scattered all over the floor - and all the wedding favor orders now each have their own box so I can collect all the bits I need and make sure I am up to date.
