DIY decorative cans- a fresh start!

 Hey there Rita Barakat here! And if you are like me kids are back in school! Yay!
Back to school is just like New Years- a fresh start!
Time to re-group, re organize and maybe set some goals!
Of course having pretty things around to help with those goals
is always a bonus!
Today I decorated this sweet little can with Susan K Weckesser whimisical paper!
A little twine and burlap added the finishing touches!
Around here we save anything that I (or the kids) could use as a craft, this can is
the perfect size! I have been saving these and I am thinking how
cute would it be to have a bunch of these line up in a row? I saw that quote and
thought that would be perfect-
A vision is not just a picture of what could be; 
it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to 
become something more.

Not just for the can (LOL) but for life, a fresh start, a new year!
Today is a great day to start over! Or keep working towards those goals!
Have a wonderful first day!
