I Think I Can

I've been collecting cans for a spell now, and I was getting a bit overwhelmed with them,so I called one of the local Art teachers to see if he could take some of them off my hands. I like to make things from cans, but they can mount up fast,if not utilized on a regular basis. It would be no problem to take them to recycling, but oh, how I hate to do that.Such a waste.Well,not really, but you know what I mean. The country can always find uses for recycled metal,but it seems like such a waste of good cheap art supplies.

This is only a sample of the cans I have made. I have pictures of lots more that I think are really cute, but have not figured out how to get them posted. Leah is setting up a yard sale of sorts, at her school, and I will be making more pencil holder cans, plus gathering up items that she can sell. She is trying to raise money for a new gadget. I am not into those things, so I forget the name of it, but it costs plenty. I will be glad to help her raise some of  the money on her own.She needs to learn that money does not grow on trees.

I have been working with Picasa 3, and it is very frustrating. I don't know if I will be able to figure it out enough to post any more pictures or not. It is very hard to understand,for me, anyway.Until I figure it out, I will not be doing any posting.This may be the end of my blogging career.We'll keep trying, for a while longer.

  1. I have faith in you Sue, I to struggle with computing.

    Anyway not all posts have to have pictures!

    Why can't you upload from your computer?
    I've never tried to use Picasa, maybe I'll give it a look.

    Like the cans, I save jars.
    Buttons, ribbons and lace in jars all over my sewing room. :-)
