Use for container...?

Post by Guest on Sun Jan 03, 2010 12:13 am

So... I like to use containers that I've recycled. And Ferrero Roche always has great containers. I've got tons of the brick shaped ones being used to hold paints in drawers, barrettes and hairpins, etc.

This year I got two of the large square flat boxes of Ferrero Roche... I am sitting here trying to figure out what to do with them. They don't fit in the drawers of my paint storage tower, but they are a really good depth and the lid fits on well...

Any ideas??

Wakka, Wakka, Wakka! Too funny, Jenny.

Store small pots/zip lock bags of glitter?
Keeper for extra feathers/beads/gems that aren't in your kit.
A place to put all your gangsta rap cd's.
A keeper/workspace for making split cakes and supplies for (I use a tray... messy business)

I just realized that I don't know if it's the box that holds 3 chocolates or a whole mess of them.

Well, if my old, achy, pressurized brain is correct, an LP cover is 12x12. Isn't that about the size of your document holders? Storing/transporting the big palattes? Start a scrapbook of all of your accomplishments and keep paper in it. Maybe a place to keep your keepsakes as you are working at the Olympics so they don't get smooshed while traveling. Um.... I'm tapped out.

They COULD work as palettes to hold large cakes - but I don't need them to do that. They are deaper than the document holders I've seen.

Maybe a large split cake for body painting with a 4" brush??

Hmm... but I could create palettes for the individual actors in the opening ceremonies by using velcro dots to affix the individual cakes, and add the brushes and sponges they'll need... hmm... that actually will work... BUT... I NEED MORE BOXES!! Hope the 50% sale is still on!!!

My apologies... Still big time... and I'm sure we all would be glad to eat a few chocolates to support the cause.

Save-On is a BC company so I wasn't sure ... good 'ol Jimmy Pattison's chain. Are you going to the Bodyssey convention in August? I'm going to go for sure! My best friend lives in Calgary and her twins will be turning 2 that weekend. It'll be my first facepainting convention and I can't wait. I want to take as many classes as I can. Will you teach some?

Last I heard it was supposed to be in April... And no one's asked me about teaching.

August... what are the dates? I'll have to go looking for info.

I tried to get on the CAFABA site but it started to upload stuff automatically and my virus programs went into action and caught a trojan??? WTF??

I'm usually booked through August and that's when we were planning to hold Camp Fennell too.

Shannon & Catz, Bodyssey is in August. Originally it was to be in April, (like last year,) but they've had some changes. The CAFABA site is totally messed and their trying to fix it. I was kinda ticked bout that whole virus thing, and emailed the board when it happened to me. Liz Small said she'd be sending updates soon. Hope to meet a few of you there. Very Happy
