If you have any school age child in your life then you probably are aware of Rainbow Loom & their status as this years must have plastic bracelet/ craft item. Fortunately for me they are everywhere along with their accoutrement as recently I was in a conundrum over how to store my paint tubes. Keeping them in a large glass jar looked cool, but was not practical. It seemed I was always needing the paint on the bottom of the jar & was perpetually dumping the jar out to find what I needed. It also made it difficult to keep track of how many tubes I have in a certain color. Hence my joy over Rainbow Looms ubiquitousness. Their storage system for loom & rubber bands is perfectly sized for watercolor paint tubes. Yes, some compartments have more than one color in them, but overall my collection fits nicely. Organization of materials cannot be underestimated. I found this box at Michaels. So if you are in the, "What do I do with my paints?" conundrum, may I humbly suggest a Rainbow Loom box. Happy Wednesday Y'all!

I recently began watching the John Adams documentary and was particularly struck by the "Appeal to Heaven" flags... Just wanted to share this eloquent statement. More information about the flag can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_Tree_Flagweeblylink_new_window
A group of volunteers made this video about single use plastic bags... while parts are wonky the overall message is clear: Ban single use plastic bags!
