May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Nancy

Altered Paint Pails


Hi Friends,
I have some scrapbooking fun today. I made these altered gallon paint cans. The top photo holds my snacks as I go to scrapbooking crops. I can also use it as a trash can if needed to hold my scraps, hence the name scraps and Snacks. The bottom photo shows my prize pail. I use it to hold small prizes or to hold names when we do drawings.
Enjoy!
Nancy

Fun idea! I love paint pails! I have a 'collection' in my house waiting to be used, but I love them so much I can't use them until I replace the one I'm using. ;o) Thanks for swinging by my blog and commenting. It's so fun to meet the blogging world out there! I'm also very impressed by your basket weaving! I clicked around some of your great projects, very impressive!
