Save your Cans!

Alright girls! (and guys!) SAVE YOUR CANS!!! I need 'em. I've got a project. I know, I're thinking "oh no Charon...another project?".........YES! Another project! And it's TOO CUTE!!!

Halloween is not my favorite holiday! (duh! It's Christmas!) but....I like Fall and I like to decorate with leaves, candles, pumpkins, etc. This however, THIS PROJECT, is like glorious sunshine to my soul!!!!!!! (have I built up enough suspense??????)

I received my new copy of Good Housekeeping magazine yesterday and look what I found!!!
(actually this is a picture of a picture, cause I couldn't find it on their website)...hopefully you can tell what it is!)

It's cans that are decorated with scrapbooking paper, stickers, and ribbon, and you put candy inside a piece of tissue paper then put the tissue paper inside the can!!!!! HOW CUTE IS THAT??????? I am bursting with joy at this very moment!!!

I thought I'd do this for N's class for Halloween. His teacher may want healthy snacks in 'em, but it's gonna be CUTE!!!!!!!

SO Y'ALL SAVE YOUR CANS FOR ME!!!!! (cans like tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, if you use canned veggies).....PLEASE!!!! Email me when you have some, and I'll come get 'em (providing you live near me--sorry Lemonade time, honey, next time!)



  1. cute, Charon, cute! I;ll save my cans... and tell Momma to save hers, too! :)
