From trash to...

well, trash!
I have this awesome thing called a
You're saying a "scrapama-what?"
I know. Weird name. GREAT PRODUCT!
It screws onto the edge of your worktable
and holds your cup/drink and that black bag---
holds your trash!
It's completely portable-so you can take it to classes,
Theresa and I were taught you DO NOT
under any circumstances
put your drink cup on a class worktable!
It was forbidden!
And while I may do it at home-
I always worried that a cat would come along
and there would go my coffee, coke-whatever.
Not any more!
But that black bag?
It had to go.
And since the ScrapMaBob people
very nicely sent me on tiny part I managed to loose
and I fixed it today
and today was my Easter holiday day off...
I decided today was the day!
So I raided my fabric stash
and found some ribbon
and got to sewing.
Then I decided it needed some bling.
I've had these flowers FOREVER---
and I am not sure if they will wash-or not-but no matter
a little hot glue, some gems and it's good to go!

here's the before again...I even lined the inside-no ragged edges!

and here's the after...whatcha think?
Now that black bag is kinda a light light plasticky material
that would wipe clean easily and not stain
My fabric is flannel--so I will either throw a small plastic bag inside
or be sure I just toss paper in there (no candy wrappers!)
I do have a plastic tote bag from JoAnns
that has dragonflies on it---that is the perfect material for this project--
so the next time I'm in town---
I will be picking up one or two!
The cup holder holds mega size coffee cups or drinks...
and here's my new fav-
Zero Sparkling (carbonated) Kiwi Strawberry water!
Their other flavors are awesome to

 On another note-
here's a photo of our living cross yesterday...
the flowers had wilted a bit by the time I got back up there
but it is still pretty I think...

That's it for today!
Time to finish cooking supper
and take care of cat boxes (ugh!)

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!

So pretty, both the new scrap holder, and the living tree.
