Great idea from Pinterest !!


I never get bored browsing Pinterest..:) Everday I see a new thing and it amazes me how creative one can be.  Those pins do help me to tickle my creativity…;) Most of those, I take the idea and  twist it a bit to make it my way..:)

Well, today I am going to share one of such pins that saved my life..:)

It is Mortan salt/any salt box and Mason Jars…:)

Keep thinking on what it can be..;)

Before I give you the details, I have a story to share..:P

My 2013 New year resolution was “No Plastic” and I was determined to re-organize the kitchen pantry. I was very excited and got 2 dozens of Mason Jars(Glass jars)  and thought  it is going to be fun. It didn’t take me long to realize how difficult they are to use..:(( I placed a wrong order, I got wide mouth jars and the stuff was spilling over and messing up my countertops..:(

I kept one set of  jars aside and almost made up my mind to return.

That’s when I saw the pin and used it for all my jars and I can’t say how neat my pantry looks..:)

My friends helped me in sharing their empty salt boxes and I owe a big thank you..:) It took me close to 10 months to get them all sorted..:)

The whole idea is to use the top part of the salt box on to the mason jar lid.



I hope you like today’s post, please don’t forget to like/comment..:)

Have a great day..:)

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
