This rescue is going to grab the attention of any parents of lego lovin' kids (like mine!) out there. "Recently, I emptied a square yellow container of corn starch," says Susan at Organized 31. That was when she realized how similar it was in size, shape, and color to the Lego head storage bins that she'd seen at the Lego store. Hey!
When a blogging friend challenged Susan from Organized 31 to upcycle a clementine crate, Susan was up for the challenge! She had an empty, wooden clementine box on hand, and decided to craft a project for an underserved population when it comes to benefiting from her blogging projects: the men of her family! She even got her son involved with this one.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, I've got a rescue with a romantic story from Jeanie at Create & Babble.

"Why not use the corks to keep my twine from turning into a big knot?"
