My Absolute Favorite Lego Container Ever!

Several months ago, my son began started playing with Legos...and I became a Lego Mom.
Lego Mom: noun, def Mother of lego child; finder of legos, usually in the middle of the night by contact with feet; possessor of loud Lego scream (produced by contact of Legos to said feet).
And then I found this (possibly the best toy container ever invented):

My son (and now daughter) can spread out the Lay-n-Go, play for hours, and then quickly cinch up the bag and put ALL the Legos away...and I no longer find spare Legos with the bottom of my feet.

I love the Lay-n-Go! Honestly, this is the best Lego container ever.

The above link is an Affiliate Link, not because I expect to make millions. I just think all Lego Moms NEED this. Seriously.

Your feet will thank me for it.

My Hello Card...And Some Bleach

CREATE Magazine has a weekly competition, and I decided to give it a try. The challenge this week is to use these colors:

I decided to try something different, and I ended up using bleach on my card. What do you think?

You are probably wondering where is the bleach, right?

I made this card with light grey cardstock which I ran through my Big Shot using an embossing folder. Then I took a Q-tip dipped in bleach and outlined the embossed shape. It turned white(ish), which allowed me to color in the flowers and stems with the aqua (flowers) and chartreuse (stems and leaves). I glittered the corner and added the pearl brad and ribbon (which I stamped with hello in grey ink).

Here's another angle that shows the embossing a little better:

I know this card really doesn't look like I used bleach. But, trust me...I have the after-effects of the fumes to prove it, lol. :-)

It felt great to make a card has been a long time. And I really liked the effect of the bleach...on the card. I think I may try it again, but next time I'll be sure to do it in a well-ventilated spot or wear a mask or something.

Happy stamping!
