Recycled T-shirt becomes Pencil Case

I always find fun stuff at Cut and Keep and this is no exception. This pencil case  is from Miriam and she has given us great step by step directions for yet another way to use up old T-shirts. All it takes is a little sewing and imagination.

I found this cool picture on flickr at jzbassguitars photostream.
The Cathedral of Junk is in Austin Texas where Vince Hannemann has crafted his clubhouse out of over 60 tons of Junk. Check out his amazing palace.

Recycle Batteries, It's EASY

Image from Wicked Sunshine
Just a reminder that you can find a drop off location for your old batteries and old cell phones at Call 2 Recycle. For me here in Plant City, Florida Lowes, and Walmart are drop off locations. AWESOME! most locations have a receptalcle in view, but some times you have to take them to the service desk. Either way...It's Easy!!

This Dynamic duo has come up with some pretty cool stuff, and I bet there will be more.
