I do enjoy prettying up the cans. Besides allowing me to be creative, it’s very relaxing–therapeutic, really.
This one (“Turquoise”) is now with Tina Inness.
I made “Turkish Delight” for Janine.
I created “Fisherman’s Dream” for Vera.
“Pink Surprise” was a surprise for Rebecca, Vera’s daughter. Rebecca is a little darling and I just love her!
I call this one “Midnight”.
“Summer” is my cookie tin for homemade cookies and other occasional goodies.

I was looking for another can to pretty up and just emptied a can of—you guessed it, Nicky—English Toffee powder mix from Tim Horton’s! I thought it would be a pretty paintbrush bucket or some such handy container.

More cans I made for a couple more friends.
The green one is “Nicky” and the yellow one is “Courtney”.
Someone said I should keep them for myself because they’re just too pretty to give away and I spend so much time and effort on them.
I get really great pleasure from creating them, but the greatest pleasure I get from making them is making them for friends to brighten up their day and know that they’re appreciated!

I decorated this can for a friend. I used beads, macaroni, buttons, and string.
I gave away another one, in purple, and forgot to take a picture before I gave it away.
Pictures are a nice way of keeping a record of things you’ve done, but too many times, the things we do aren’t recorded in any way.
Sometimes, that’s a terrible shame.
